Only one side works on my headphones.

only one side works on my headphones when plugged into my pc. I know they work because I use them on my ipod all the time.

Try another set of headphones just to eliminate them as the cause.

Go into Sound Settings and make sure the Balance has not changed.

Try wetting the the plug and rotating it in the socket (by wetting it I don't mean under the tap, just with the mouth, like you would a paint brush!).

Tried wiggling the jack in the socket?

Does the sound come out in stereo when you use the normal speakers?.

Are you sure the music you are listening to has been recorded in Stereo, not mono?

If yes to both then the headphones must be at fault, either incorrectly set (Do you have manual control on each ear piece?)or a loose/ broken connection.

If No, Then the audio card is at fault.

You have a choice,try another set of earphones or replace the Audio card

(Tip: Go to your local charity shop, you can normally pick up a set of earphones for 50p -£1.00.)

The iPod does not use a Standard Stereo Jack Plug

Have you gone into your soundcards programme and switched it to headphones?

iPod phones are suitable for Ipods only, unless you have a converter Jack plug.

Yeah I did I actually own a zune. I was just using ipod as a generic term for music player
