Question about HP iPAQ H5555 Pocket PC

Line Recording with H5500

From the HP guide it would appear the 3.5mm jack is for stereo microphone or headphones, I want to use it to record using a direct cable connection with 3.5mm jack I am using Resco Audio Recorder as software, but the problem is I don't seem to be able to get any sound to come through! I think it's a hardware rather than software problem. If anyone can help I would be most appreciative.

I think that audio jack is for headphone-microphone combined (those cable plugs have a three black lines , top for left audio, center for right audio, last line for microphone) so you can use a headphones with mic directly with this 5500. the mic is i said before is the last line. what you need is a monophone plug. (mono mic) i dont think stereo mic will work.

Does the acer aspire 5532 have a sound card or built in microphone?

I believe it has both, strictly speaking it won't be a dedicated sound card as such but the capability will be integrated onto the motherboard. According to Acer Support the 5532 has High-definition audio support, Two built-in stereo speakers and is MS-Sound compatible. The peripheral subsystem has a Headphone/speaker/line-out jack and a Microphone-in jack should you want to add an external microphone for better quality recording.

I plugged in a microphone to the phones jack but it is not recording onto the tape.

This is a car stereo, right? You can't record on car stereos. The phones jack is for headphones.

Computer Does Not Detect Headset Microphone

Sound and Recording jacks stop working on the DV6000 series due to the ribbon cable running under the power button. when the power button is pushed it bends the flex cable and over time it breaks the connection rendering the front jacks useless you can buy a new upper button panel for about 20 dollars on ebay

Dp02 recording music(from stero)

Sounds like you are using the DP-02's 'stereo mix' inputs here. If so, the signal input from those is only routed to the line out and headphone jacks and cannot be recorded using the DP-02.

To record from a stereo you need to take the left and right aux outs (or some other line out - like the tape outs) from the stereo and put them into the main A and B mic/line inputs on far right of the DP-02's back panel. Then assign them to two respective tracks and you can record the stereo output to the DP-02. Just make sure you use a line level output from the stereo as the amplified speaker output can overpower and damage the inputs on the DP-02. You might need a couple of rca to 1/4 inch adapters to accomplish this.

Hope this helps.

I owned a Olympus voice recorder of VN4100 model it doesn't have usb port how can i import files from recorder to computer.

The KA-333 compaticord connects from the earphone or headphone jack output of a voice recorder to the microphone input jack of another recording device. With the KA-333, you can transfer recordings from your voice recorder to another voice recorder. You can also use the KA-333 to transfer recordings from a voice recorder to a PC or home stereo (check your PC or home stereo for jack compatibility).
