Try the green socket that you plug your speakers into, that is a line-out socket supplying 0.5 - 1.0ma and will power small speakers and headphones when required.

Just remember to turn down the volume on the mixer panel (control panel/sounds and audio/device volume) start off low and slowly increase to find the right, undistorted, level.

Wrong way round I'm afraid - a line-in is required, not always available.

nohope ______________

You need an output on the mini-disc - at a pinch you can use the headphone socket, sometimes they double up as a line-out.

For a line-in on the PB - you'll have to read your manual to see if there is one, or if there's a setting you can change to make one. Sometimes the third (blue?) socket is line-in

You could try the mic-in (red) socket, but be very careful - it's not normally really suitable - make sure all the volumes are turned right down first, and be prepared for it not to work.

Just to make it crystal clear - OUT on the mini-disk to an IN on the PB

Use the microphone socket on your pc sound card and the normal headphone socket on the md
