    of my hand will get me slapped.
    SO here is my dilemma. I want to use the headphone output of my iPod, plug it into the microphone inout of my PC (work PC) and listen through the speakers on my laptop. Im doing this to conserve space on my desk and a bit of a cool factor. Does anyone know of any programs for the PC that will pass the sound through.

    sndvol32 -- The default Windows sound mixer.

    If there is a small speaker icon in your systray, double-click that. It should pop up a mixer.

    Then click Options / Properties, select Recording, check all of the boxes underneath (CD Player, Line-In, etc) and click "OK." That'll pop up a new (probably smaller) mixer named, "Recording Control."

    Select Line-In fader and set it to approximately 80% then close the mixer.

    Double-click the speaker icon again to open up the "Volume Control" mixer. Make sure the Line-In fader is un-muted and adjust it as needed. If Line-In isn't visible, click Options / Properties and check it in the "Show the following volume controls:" box.

    It sounds a bit tedious, but it's really not that bad. HTH.
