E40 Combo Audio connector

2011-12-01, 5:26 AM



My wife has a Thinkpad Edge 14 / E40 with the single "combo audio"/microphone connector but she wants to record using "line in" stereo.


I am starting to think that this unit does not support "line in" through this combo audio connector even though there are Windows 7 Line In devices listed in the Sound control panel.


I have tried to find some specification that would tell me one way or another but I am striking out.


Can anyone advise me if this is possible to do with this model?


I am starting to think it cannot work as line in.


Thanks for any help.

hey AussieFella,

welcome to the forums.

As i do not have that particular unit with me, i can't say for certain if using an audio jack splitter will work : http://www.niharsworld.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/05/audio-splitter.jpg

but if you do have one, could you try and see if it works ?
