analog audio cable to digital

I want to get a small walkman cassette audio 3.5 mm cable into the computer by the USB bus. Am I understanding that the required cable must be 'converted' because one end is analog and digital on the other? I intend to cassettes music download the Garageband application. If Yes, where can I buy such a cable converter, I hope that stereo, perhaps with nickel or gold contacts?

You need an analog-to-digital converter for this: for example Alternatively you can get a simple tape with a USB connector like this player:

  • analog audio output and digital optical

    I just bought a 500-214 with IDT High Def Audio CODEC Pavilion / DTS Sound +.

    Is it possible to get opitcal of audio output digital and analog (speakers/headphones) at the same time?  Stereo amp needs access both to the multizone/source function.  I can manually choose one or the other before the reading - it is clumsy that when audio of of active switching devices will turn off, but a passage to not always light up.  But I really need both active simultaneously for amp work properly.  I also found jack rear speaker to be more stubborn while headphones jack front of switch.

    Hi zombi1,

    Welcome to the HP Forums!

    I did some research on whether or not we can use the analog or digital audio output at the same time, and it is unfortunately not possible.

  • Digital input to Toshiba 46TL-> no analog audio output to amplifier

    Hi all

    When I connect a video source (e.g. computer laptop via DLNA) to my 46TL, output TV audio analog (red/white taken connected to an amplifier) does not work.

    It does, however, watching television.

    Is it possible to configure the TV to read the audio data from digital input (HDMI/DLNA) to the analog output?

    Thank you for the help

    Not quite what series of TLxxx you have, but for example the TL938 supports a digital (optical) audio output port that provides a digital audio signal.
    Why n t connect the amplifier to the TV using this Jack?

    Connectors for component video / audio to the rear of the TV are the ports of ENTRY and not the OUTPUT ports. So, you can send an audio signal to the TV and not the amplifier output.

  • Capture Analog Audio Cassette on Qosmio player

    G163 manual indicates that the SVHS-IN should be used to capture the audio analogue. But same Belkin do not sell a SVHS cable with two RCA plugs / mini-prises on the other end. Or is it safe to the output of a speaker port extension cassette player for entry into the microphone port.

    But which could overload the circuits if the volume is too high. I have the audacity to make the real analog - digital conversion and capture. I am amazed that this a portable Hi-Spec (and expensive) does not come with something as simple as an analog audio line-in port.

    Thank you very much.

    1. you get easily no matter what audio through audio red and white composite input(red-white-yell0w) provided and yellow video.

    2. video (not SVHS) is for video only (image), it cannot carry audio!

    3.I have used windvd creator and the above to convert ALL my VHS and SVHS tapes on DVD with audio and audio video and even dubbed through the input mic for more than a year now (best video with SVIDEO and you must still connect to an audio input to the unit)
    Qosmio comes with a variety of composite video input s video and the split left and right audio inpur with minijack adapter (marked triple minijack)


  • How to make my computer send all audio data via an optical audio cable instead of making headphones?


    To listen to the radio online or CD played from my computer, I used to connect the computer to my entertainment system at home since the headphone jack of the computer to the port on my home entertainment system.

    Now, I wanted to get a better sound and bought the optical audio cable. However, I don't know how to tell my computer to send the audio signal to the system entertainmeny home via digital cable optical, rather than by the headphone. If I just disconnect the cable between the headphone and the port to THE and have only the PC and the system connected with the optical audio cable, I can't hear any sound. I suspect that the computer is not sending the data through the optical audio port. I'm not able to figure out how I can adjust the settings on my computer so that, from now on, all sounds are emitted through the optical audio.

    (1) I want to do it especially for my desktop HP (configuration below) and advice on how to do this would be appreciated.

    (2) I also have a HP laptop (configuration below) and I was wondering if this would be feasible too (even if she does not have an audio output, but it has an HDMI output - you can convert audio optical?)

    Thanks in advance!

    Hello @_goma,.

    Welcome to the HP Forums, I hope you enjoy your experience!

    I read your post about how you want to send all the audio data via an optical audio cable instead of the headphone jack of your computer, and I'd be happy to help you in this case!

    To configure your desktop computer to activate the optical audio cable, I advise you to follow the steps below:

    Step 1. Click on the button of the Windows key on your desktop

    Step 2. Type "Control Panel."

    Step 3. Select "Control Panel" in the upper right corner

    Step 4. Select sound

    Step 5. On the Read tab, right click on the white box under available devices

    Step 6. Select "Show disabled" and "show disconnected devices".

    Step 7. Connect your Audio optical cable

    Step 8. Select your cable Audio perspective as the default device, and click 'enable '.

    Because it is not possible to convert the audio output HDMI output on your laptop, it is regrettable that the laptop is not able to connect with an optical audio cable.

    Please re-post with the results of your troubleshooting, and I look forward to your response!


  • Airport Express - no internet if audio cable is connected


    I have an Airport Express for several years already and it worked perfectly fine for me until today.

    I didn't know that the internet connection has stopped working. After trying different things, I realized that the internet connection works when I connect the audio cable to the the Airport Express - airport service program in the internet sign suddenly gets Orange and green not as soon as I connect the audio cable to use for AirPlay. When I disconnect the audio cable again, it works again.

    Any ideas of what this could be?

    In this way, that I can't use Airplay longer.

    Airport Express: Version 7.6.7.

    I tried the update of the AXE, but this did not help.

    Thanks to everyone for your ideas!

    Best regards


    Is the Terminal AirPort Express the only router in the current configuration of your network? What is the brand and model of the Internet with a modem or gateway that you have the Express directly connected by Ethernet?
