I've had similar problems. The culprit was the suspension mechanism of the adapter's built-in tape head. It didn't move far enough into the adapter and the tape player concluded the tape had ended (pulled tight). So try to loosen the spring behind the tape head.

Good luck.

BTW I would prefer a line-in over a cassette adapter anytime. Running CD-player or not. The sound quality is MUCH better.
