The unit has a phones out. You run 1/8" stereo out into you line in jack on your PC or laptop. Most computers that are less than 5 yrs old have a 1/8" stereo input for a microphone. Most, also have a pop up that gives you a choice for that input as a mic or a line in. Choose the line in. Use the sound recorder software in Windows or Mac, or download a free music editing program like Audacity.This is all pretty straight forward. After a few minutes you should have a .wav or and .mp3 that you can ...

Works great. Currently using it for lecture classes. It picks up every word the instructor says when set on high frequency.For all those clicking through the 1, 2, and 3 star reviews. There seems to be a few misunderstandings about this product. Let me try to clarify them for those who can't afford the pricier models.1) Slide the hold button and it will turn off in a few seconds (battery won't die if you turn it off)2) The notes DO NOT REPEAT 10 TIMES TO ERASE. Click play, hit erase button twi...

This is in response to the previous review. Like other versions of Sony voice recorders, this device is turned off by using the "hold" switch. If you turn it off when not in use, the batteries will last much longer. Also, the erase function isn't that problematic. Just press the erase button a couple of times and it should delete the current recording. I found this item to be really useful given the hundreds of hours recording time available.

Documentation states there is no on/off. But there is. The switch on the side labeled "hold" does the trick.Also the instructions for erasing a message, if followed, will result in message being played 10 times before it is erased. (Why anyone would have a need for THAT to occur is beyond me.) But simply pressing the "Erase" button twice in succession while playing the message will erase the message instantly. That approach is undocumented in the instructions.Thanks to the other posters who prov...

I bought my Sony Model ICD-B600 voice recorder today. I found it easy to set up, easy to record on and very easy to play back. The little bugger plays back with plenty of volume. I am going to be using it to record violations as I drive through our HOA on inspections. I'm sure it will be handy for many other things as well.I'm glad that I checked out the reviews here on Amazon, because the instructions do not tell you to put it on HOLD to save the batteries. The hold button, on the right side, i...

Please don't waste your money on this recorder if you plan on using it for any other reason than to record your own voice at close range - which it does pretty well. I purchased this recorder to record lectures and so far all I get on playback is voice quality so low, that I can't understand what is being said. I have tried everything from putting the recorder on my professors desk where he lectures to placing the recorder in different spots around the room. I've also put it on the highest sensi...

No where on the package does it say you can't hook it up to your computer to get the files off. I am VERY disappointed at that. So, this is completely useless to me now. I got it so I can record rehearsals for the shows that I do, but I can't put the rehearsals on CD so I can learn my parts. Make sure you get one that can be hooked up to a computer! Now I have buy a new one!

I should have done more research on this prior to purchase. I thought that since it was a digital recorder and had microphone input and headset output that I would be able to download the digital recording to my computer. This model does not allow for a download, instead the small print says to backup your files using a tape recorder. That seems really dumb since I bought this to replace a tape recorder.

Got this a few days ago. First, I followed instructions to erase one message - it then goes beserk and repeats that message 10 times before erasure. The manual says it does that.After 48 hours, there is a low battery message on new batteries. I noticed the display is still on. Then, I realized that I did not turn it off. After reading the instructions, and examining the unit, I did not find any instruction for turning off, nor is there any on/off switch.I explaines this to a friend, and said thi...

Maybe several years ago Sony's icd-b300/b400/b600 recorders were considered good but now Sony has a MUCH better line-up in the ICD-bx700 for approx $30 shipped (refurbished) here on Amazon or $40 new at walmart. I own both and the newer + much improved bx700/px720(adds usb port) make these older models obsolete. They are still basically the same recorders and look the same but offer more features, 1gb storage, SHQ mode along with HQ mode AND HQ mode on the bx700 sounds 10x's better than HQ mod...
