How to Transfer a Digital Recording From a Sony ICD-B300 to a Computer


The Sony ICD-B300 is a digital voice recorder that gives you the ability to record content on the go. This is extremely helpful when trying to take notes and you simply can't write as fast as the speaker. Although the Sony voice recorder doesn't have a built in Audio Out port on the device (outside of the headphone connection), you can transfer the audio from the recorder to your computer.

Things You'll Need

  • 3.5mm male-to-male cable
  • Plug one end of the 3.5mm cable into the headphone port on the Sony ICD-B300 digital voice recorder. You can find such a cable at any electronics store.

  • Connect the opposite end of the cable into the Line In port on the computer. This is where you typically connect a microphone to the system.

  • Power on the Sony voice recorder. On the computer, click the "Start" button, followed by "Control Panel." Select the sound icon and chose the hardware content. From the "Input" pull-down menu select "Line-In" as the default audio device.

  • Launch the audio recording program you have installed on the computer. Windows has such a program if you click "Start," "All Programs," "Accessories," and chose the audio recording program.

  • Press "Play" on the Sony digital voice recorder, then click the "Record" button on the software. The audio now streams onto the computer. Click "Stop" to stop the voice recording, then select "File," "Save" and save the audio file to your computer.
