Dell Axim x51v & PocketMusic, No Headphone sound

by NeverBoring / December 18, 2010 1:52 AM PST

Win 7 Pro 64, WM 6.1

Even though there is headphone sound with Windows Media Player, I do not have sound using PocketMusic(free). Sound is furnished via the internal speakers using either program.

I don't recall a WM6.1 upgrade...

I don't recall a Windows Mobile 6.1 upgrade being offered for the X51. Is that a custom, third-party ROM being used?

John, WM = Windows Mobile 6.1. If this is flamb, get a life.

As an authof WM apps.

While I limit support from 4.0 to 6.5, WM does not mean it's 6.1.

Microsoft is all over the map with the names and versions for Windows CE and Mobile. It's a rat maze.

Boy oh boy, I can hardly stand all the help. WOW! It seems that "experts" can only skate.

Still waiting for you to answer the question...

I asked a simple, relevant question ("Is that a custom, third-party ROM being used?") that would provide some insight regarding driver support, potentially explaining the issue and indicating a path to resolution. Unfortunately, you've chosen to ignore the question and respond sarcastically, which helps neither us nor you.

I should also point out two things:
1.) As Bob said, WM does not mean Windows Mobile 6.1, it means Windows Mobile. That version number is significant.
2.) I never asked or challenged what WM stands for; you chose to define it for seemingly no reason.

If you're willing to work with us to resolve the issue you're facing, great; we'd be more than happy to help. If not, though, you'll find yourself consistently on your own.

Sorry about that. Since I author WM and other apps I thought I would comment. It's possible that some custom rom or image was installed and that's the problem.

Rather than skirt that issue why not tell?

I read it but
by R. Proffitt Forum moderator / December 24, 2010 8:27 AM PST

I never saw a 6.1 issued for the Axim. This is why everyone is asking how that came to be. Unlike desktops those handhelds had specific issues of the images.

If you changed it or someone did it's time to put it back to stock.

Sorry if all these questions upset you.
Bob
