How to convert audio in notes to wav?

There are two ways to record a note. First, one can press the record button on the side of the iPAQ or start Notes and simply hit the "record" red dot - either way produces a wav file which can be played back on the iPAQ or any other wav player. The second way is to start Notes, then click New, then click the "record" red dot. This method produces an audio object within a note. It can be copied to a desktop PC and opened with WinWord. But, I can't figure out how to get that embedded audio object saved on my PC as a wav file. I have some that were recorded this way and I sure do need to play them as wavs. Is there a procedure that will convert them?

This was a fun project. Here's how I did it. You'll need to download a freeware audio editor named Audacity. I did this on a Mac, but it's cross-platform, and I'm assuming the menus are the same for Windows. http://audacity.sourceforge.net/ Then. (1) Copy .pwi (Note) file to PC (2) Open Audacity (3) Get the Note audio into Audacity by: Project menu Import as raw data (4) Select all of the audio by clicking below its file name at left of the graphic of the file (5) Click on dropdown menu (arrow next to file name) Set Rate to 11025 Hz (6) Convert to WAV by: File menu Export as wav

Hard reset of my hp ipaq 510 i forgot my password

s.gifs.gifHP iPAQ 500 Voice Messenger Series - Resetting the Device
Sometimes you need to reset your iPAQ if, for example, it is not responding to your pressing a button or your tapping the screen.There are two types of resets.
  • Soft Reset - A soft reset stops all running applications, but does not erase any programs or saved data.
  • Factory or Hard Reset - A factory or hard reset clears all user-installed settings, programs, and data, and restores your iPAQ to factory settings.

Performing a Soft ResetPerform a normal or soft reset to stop all running applications, to restart the iPAQ after installing a new application, or if the iPAQ locks up.CAUTION:Make sure to close all running applications before performing a soft reset, since a soft reset erases all unsaved data in such applications.Perform a soft reset using one of these two options.
  • Turn off the iPAQ by holding down the End key.c01118005.jpg1 - End Key
  • Remove the battery of your iPAQ.

Performing a Factory or Hard ResetPerform a factory or hard reset when there is a need to clear all settings, programs, and data from the RAM.CAUTION:Performing a hard reset will return the iPAQ to its default settings and it loses all information (files and settings, among others) that is not recorded in the ROM. Back up all important information or data before performing a hard reset.Follow these steps to perform a hard reset and return your iPAQ to factory settings.
  1. Turn off your iPAQ by holding down the End key.
  2. Then hold down the center of the 4-Way Navigation key and turn on the iPAQ again while continuing to do so.c01118006.jpg1 - 4-Way Navigation Key2 - End Key
  3. A confirmation screen opens asking whether you want to perform a hard reset or not. SelectYes . The iPAQ will reboot with its original factory settings.
NOTE:The applications and data present on your iPAQ before performing the hard reset can be reinstalled by synchronizing your iPAQ with a computer using ActiveSync/WMDC (Windows Mobile Device Center).NOTE:If you don't want the iPAQ playing a tune after you turn it on, create a new text document and save the document as StartUp.wav. Replace this new document with the file on your device.

How to use micrphone from my laptop

What kind of software do you have?

If you have Windows: go to Start Menu / Programs / Accessories / Entertainment / Sound Recorder.

plug in your mic. turn it on. say "testing...testing..check, one, two...sockpuppets, sockpuppets"

in Sound Recorder, click on the button with the red circle. You'll be recording in .wav format.

If you want better quality sound than the default, go to File / Properties / Convert Now

here you can choose a higher sampling and bit rate. Standard CD audio is 44.100kHz, 16 bit, Stereo. Take note that the higher quality the file, the more hard drive space is occupies.

If you want to get crazy with more involved audio software, I have lots more to say.

Ringtones

I found this on a website. I used to have the LG VX8500 but now I have the Sidekick 3 and didn't get the chance to try it. Maybe it works....

This is for windows users.

You will need BitPim .62, as well as a CD Ripping program called CDex, found at

http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/c...1.exe?download

Install CDex, and open it up.

Click on the Convert menu, and click where it says "Convert compressed audio files to "Wav Files"

Then Browse and find your Mp3.

Click convert, and make note of where the new .wav is saved.

Then use Sound Recorder (standard windows program --- Start>Programs>Accessories>Entertainment>Sound Recorder --- ) to open up the .wav file, and crop the part of the song you want as a ringer.

Once the file is the size you want it, go to file and then save.

Use CDex once again to reverse the conversion -- Click Convert and then click "Convert .wav files to compressed audio files".

That's all you need to do. Then just use BitPim .62 to add the file to your phone.

Embed audio notes

Since the C-5500 has audio recording capability it is possible to record brief audio notes, which become an embedded part of the image file. Open the MODE MENU and select the CAMERA tab. Toggle right to enter the CAMERA sub-menu and toggle down until you have selected the microphone icon, using the OK/MENU button. Then toggle right, select ON and press the OK/MENU button twice. The sound recording function is now enabled. About .5 seconds after the shutter is released the 4 second recording period will begin recording. You will need to point the microphone on the front of the camera toward the sound source. You can also record and record over audio notes on photos already taken. In the PLAYBACK Mode open the MODE MENU, select the PLAY tab and then select START. Pressing the OK/MENU button will start the 4 second recording period.
