Trying to get audio- import audio in through combo audio jack on T520

2012-09-21, 17:15 PM

I'm trying to get audio in through the combo audio jack on my T520 -- I can use a stereo or mono mini jack on the other end (attached to an analog cassette deck) but would like to know how to import the audio if it's possible through the audio combo jack?  Adapters etc? Since the stereo mini-jack I have isn't working.  Must say I know it's the wave of the future and I know there's a built in mic.... but am not keen on this "one size fits all" jack... 

 

Thanks

Hi Gaia1muse,

What i can say is current Thinkpad uses combo jack for audio, and they are compatable with apple iphone's handfree (for mic and headphone only). Hope this helps.

To answer my own question -- you need to y  the signal into a two parts --separate  headphone and mic.  signals which makes sense.  Use a 4 pole 3.5 mini-jack connector. y'd ....  Will update once I receive the part.
