- VoIP (phone voice and text service over the internet)
A stereo microphone just shy of being studio-quality. Very high quality and very highly recommended.
With no drivers needed, this thing has been tested and works on various Linux distributions, Windows XP, Windows 8.1 and Windows 10. I've also tested it as an audio output device (a "sound card") and it works great.
This is just shy of being unused, because I wrecked the audio jack.
Not in stock at dx.com, but perhaps try one of:
A very high quality and easy-to-use dictaphone / mp3 player / usb stick.
This replaces Digital Voice Recorder.
For extremely cheap telephone service using VoIP, I have this device. Instead of having my computer on all the time, I have this box hooked up to my network. I then have a regular telephone plugged into it. Once configured, everything is magic.
I think I purchased mine from CanadaComputers - Cisco SPA122 on canadacomputers.com
A basic dictaphone and mp3 player.
It records with horrible static with both its in-built and provided microphone, but its mp3 playback is spectacular. Its utterly shit mp3 interface, slow song switching and no shuffle make it basically useless as a player.
I bought this lower-sized version because it mentioned having a lithium battery. It does not, which pisses me off to no end.
While this works, it is definitely not recommended. Buy something else, even if it costs more.
This was replaced by Noise Reduction Digital Voice Recorder
When working with a USB stick or a storage card like an SD or MicroSD card..
"Fix" one which cannot be formatted.
The batteries on my Zaurus SL-C1000 failed to work, so I did some looking around and found a solution.
My battery could charge and would boot up my device. While it showed as fully charged it would "drain" extremely quickly.
Following these instructions I was able to completely resurrect one battery, but a second one did not work. That second battery had a bit of a bulge, so I'm guessing it went completely bad.
Whoops, I broke my HP 200LX.. I'll have to get it repaired before I can re-open this project.
NOTE TO SELF - Maybe try to get a 96 MB upgrade. What did I have?

During my recent Linux distributions experimentation, I noticed a few times that Windows 8.1 would no longer "see" a particular USB stick I was using. It would appear within the device list, would test correctly but would not appear in the left-hand pane in explorer.
I learned that this was because one or more of the distributions I was testing would, for unfathomable reasons, prep the USB stick strangely.
Why Windows wouldn't just offer to format the stick is unknown to me.
