    Currently I have a Nomad Jukebox MP3 player. It has 2 line out jacks for coonection to a 4 or 5 speaker set-up. I would like to connect this thing possibly to my computers 2 speakers so I could have access to being able to play the 56 tracks I have on there through my computers speakers instead of through the headphones. I already tried unhhoking the speakers from the computer and playing it that way but when I do that the volume is really low and the Jukebox will not let me turn the volume up, since the speakers are unplugged from the computer I can't adjust the volume that way. My computer speakers are ones with no external volume control on them. Any other ways to do this and still get sound from my computer speakers? thanks.

    You need a Stereo to Stereo small headphone harness. Plug

    the Nomad into the "Line In" on your sound card and then

    you can play it through the PC and control the volume through

    the PC

    Yes RadioShack will have it.. It's just a pair of stereo

    headphone jacks one on each end of a wire. Used to transfer

    a stereo audio signal out of one device and into another

    device when they both use small stereo headphone jacks.
