I heard from somebody else (unless it was you) that reported the same issue.
That headphones jack seems to be nothing but trouble. Unfortunately, I
don't think I have a warrantee and the hassle/time involved just wouldn't

come with software for the Palm. I would be glad to hear suggestions from
someone who has experience with that.
