I'm trying to play songs from my laptop through the POD into a guitar amp. I jam along with a second amp but. However, I'm getting a lot of noise.


I'm running a 1/8" cable from the headphones jack on my laptop to the aux in on my Foor Pod Plus. I then use a 1/4" sheilded instrument cable to run from the POD mono out to the instrument input on a guitar amp. I get really bad high frequency interference-type noise coming through the amp.


The strange thing is, if I hook up my iPod instead of my computer it is crystal clear. Or if I have my computer hooked up and use headphones via the POD instead of the amp, it is crystal clear. Only this computer + POD + amp scenario creates noise.


I *could* just load the songs onto my iPod and use it, but it would be a pain and not nearly as convenient as using my computer.


Any ideas what could be causing this noise and how to fix it?

Try to keep the volume very low on the laptop's headphone.
