    I was wondering what software, hardware and wiring is needed to transfer the loved songs from my S100 to mp3 or wav?

    I know some use Total Recorder software on the PC. You take a plug from the headphone jack of your stiletto and plug it into the microphone port of your computer.

    Play the songs and record them to MP3

    Got it and pretty cheap but did not buy yet... I dont like the sound quality it produces. Are there some recommeded settings that I should use. I have a bunch over music file covnerters so the out put doesnt matter to me. I guess mp3 would be the best way to start as it will be the best replication - no?

    I don't have any specific settings. Typically I'm using it to post a clip or something that I recorded. But what I would recommend is being careful with the volume output of the Stiletto as if it's too loud it overmodulates the sound and it sounds awful.

    As far as MP3 settings I believe you can set the sample rate which changes the file sizes. The better the sound quality the larger the files. You need to find a happy medium. Also, talk radio requires less quality than music.

    I'm sure there are expersts here. Perhaps just a new topic asking for help with total recorder will get you some answers.

    There are other recording programs available also. Some are even free. Freecorder comes to mind. So if you don't like total recorder search for others too. I just know that many on the forum use total recorder.

    You are absolutely right about the volume of the stiletto - that was what was killing me.

    Well I ended up using the recorder built into Vista Ultimate and everything worked aawesome. The only thing is you cant hear it while it is recording - but it works like a charm.
