Does anyone have any ideas that could help figure out the problem. I have rebooted, reloaded, re-everything with no success.
If anyone has any ideas I would be very appreciative. If all else fails I am hoping I am still in the warranty period because I don't think I can live without my Pearl working with cassette adapters and other headphones.
See my post in another thread where IMHO I don't think it's the Seidio adapter that is the problem, it's the Pearl's crappy audio port. I say "crappy" because I looked inside the port and it looks cheaply constructed.
Near as I can tell the problem is the contact tips inside the port that come into contact with the male plug of whatever you are plugging in. They seem, over time, to recess deeper into their slots to where they do not protrude inside the port to contact all that well with your earphones or whatever.
The reason some devices work, while others do not, could be the size of the male plug? Some may not be as thick as others.
Just my hunch.
