    Hi,
    I am trying to drive a 1V-3V motor which ill be connected to an audio output port (where you insert headphones or a speaker) and I am wondering, can I just put it there like that, or do I actually need to build some sort of amplifier circuit to run it properly. I am doubting current levels would be insufficient.

    I am very new to the world of electronics. So be easy on me.

    Thank you in advance,
    Ahmed

    I want to drive a motor based on an audio file. I don't want to use a microphone.

    you are going to have to expand on that brief and unclear explanation :)

    be specific about what you are actually trying to achieve

    cheers

    I need the motor to change speeds according to the pace/bass of the audio file. I don't know what else to say...

    How about:
    What will the motor be driving?
    What is the overall aim of the project?

    Answer in DETAIL please.
