The socket on your player is an audio output. The headphone socket on a Hi-Fi unit is, again, an audio output. If your cable has a 3.5mm audio mini-jack (male) at each end, you can connect the headphone output of your device to an input socket, but these generally only exist in some in-car players, and rarely on home audio products.

If you want to connect to a Hi-Fi system, you are better off connecting to the phono-in sockets that you will find at the back of your unit, notably on dedicated amplifiers. You can then get a simple lead with a 3.5mm audio mini-jack (male) at one end and a pair of phono plugs (left and right) at the other end. This should cost no more than a few pounds and are available from places like Maplin or from specialist sellers on eBay.

How do you hook audio speakers to a portable dvd player


I am guessing that by this question you mean using computer speakers with a 3.5 mm jack with a portable dvd player which might have a 3.5 mm jack or you could get an adapter cable composite audio (red and white) to a audio jack.
Hope this helps

Headphone jack


You must have not plugged in it properly, force the jack till the end of the socket so it locks in with a click, then it will work fine.

Turn volume up all the way on goGear, then turn volume up on your car stereo.

Static is caused by the headphone moving around in the jack - find a place where the GoGear can sit relatively still w/o shuffling, etc.

Try using Windows Media Player (version 11 should be fine) to sync music files to it. Using drag-and-drop to the device folder only sometimes works (and usually doesn't).
