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.

Re: Line Recording with H5500

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.

Is this product wireless stereo so music can be play off pda


Some PDAs can broadcast BlueTooth in stereo, but none known that are able to broadcast directly to a radio.

To use the bluetooth, you would need an adapter that would allow you to attach a bluetooth receiver to stereo inputs, or a radio that is able to be paired to a bluetooth device directly. Otherwise, you will need to plug in a FM transmitter into the headphone jack of the PDA to get your signal to the radio that way. A third method is to use a cable between the PDA and radio, but it is no longer wireless.

Hi, can you tell me how can i listen calls through fm of my car?

Get a 3.5mm headphone adapter for your HTC phone. Use the line out to either a little FM transmitter (very fuzzy) or install an FM modulator in your car (better) or, if your car has one, plug directly into the AUX jack of your stereo. Google "htc 3.5mm adapter" for people who sell pre-made adapters.

Here's a fun do-it-yourself project for those of us without AUX jacks. He cuts up an HTC adapter to connect to a microphone and FM modulator so that he can make a home made speakerphone.

Hp hw6515d no sound loudspeaker

Hi, Antonio--
This appears to be common with the 6515. You will either have to get your headphone jack replaced, or you can try what finally worked for me. Insert and remove your headphone jack as many times as necessary to get the internal connector in the jack to work properly.
It took me about a dozen tries, doing it both fast and slowly.

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).

This can be purchased from

Microphone not working

You should try a ROM upgrade. THis problem may have occured if you have a corrupted ROM memory. If for my first choice.. hmm.. It isn't hardware, in my opinion. Try the ROM update first. Save all your important data (no back-up) only save the files to the computer, then have the PDA's battery fully charged, make an active sync connection using USB sync cable (bluetooth, or IR woun't work) and open the ROM update file. For a ROM update, use the oficial HP ROM versions. Here is a link to the wm2003 version. It is the only one that HP distributes free of any charges. Folow the instructions carefully. In that list select and download : HP iPAQ h6300 Pocket PC Series ROM Update (English Languages Support Only) Good luck, fell free to ask any other question about this process or others and always remember to rate solutions. :)

Jack for the external microphone

There is an error in the MobilePro 900 manual (Pages 2-2 and 2-3). The jack on the front of the MobilePro 900 is a stereo headphone jack only. The MobilePro 900 has a built in microphone. There is no jack for attaching an external microphone.
