Hi. I would like a quick fix to playing music from My Nokia phone and have it play directly on the pc's speakers. I have the hardware to connect the phone to the mic input of the pc but I don't get any sound. What should I do?

You can use the line-in connection on your sound card to connect a portable music player, microphone, or other audio input device to your computer.

However, the line-in connection to your sound card is muted by default. This means that if you plug an audio device into this port, it will not produce any sound on your computer until you enable sound for the line-in connection.

To enable sound for the line-in connection:

1) Open Audio Devices and Sound Themes by clicking the Start button , clicking Control Panel, clicking Hardware and Sound, and then clicking Sound.

2) Click the Playback tab, click Speakers, and then click Properties.

3) Click the Levels tab, and then, under Line In, click the Mute button  to enable sound for the line-in connection.

Did you check to see if the mic line is enabled or unmuted?

You didn't say which Windows, but Control Panel > Sounds > Audio tab > Advanced should get you there or at least close.

You might also try the Line In plug, if you have one.

Also in Control Panel up the input volume to maximum.

Now you may not get any sound or sound with very low volume even if you adjusted the input volume to maximum.  Many output sockets (headphone usage typically) output a very low voltage which is insufficient for good sound

Just thought of something, how are you trying to play the songs?

With the "PLAY" button on the phone?
I don't think it will work that way. The computer is not an amp.

With one of the PLAYERS (Windows Media Player, VLC, Media Monkey, etc) in Windows?
Then you might need to set the phone as a "storage device", so the player will see it.
