Subject: how to get "Line IN" to work

how to get "Line IN" to work

I have a good headset (1 ear + mike) from my cell phone. It has a micro plug. I bought an adapter that changes it to two separate mini plugs. I can put those two mini-plugs into the mike and headphone jacks of my computer and they both work. It produces a rich, life-like voice recording.

But when I try that with the Recorder 20, only the earpiece works. The mike won't pic up any sound when plugged into the Line IN, no matter what input I select.

I tried the same thing on a Nomad Jukebox, and same result.

So is there some kind of wiring difference here that explains why the setup works on the computer, but not the portable players?

Could someone suggest how I could get this headset to work on the R20? I'd really appreciate it!

(If not, any suggestions for good headsets that would work on the R20 and produce good, life-like voice recordings?)
