    I like to listen to my music while I play bejeweled blitz. I have muted the game sounds and music, but the music still turns off when I return to my game. It worked for me before; meaning, I used to be able to listen to my music and play bejeweled simultaneously until one day it just won't let me so I am wondering if there is a simple setting to fix this problem.
    Thank you!

    As far as I know, you have to mute the game's music in order to listen to your own music. The iPhone won't play sounds from two different apps simultaneously.

    I have done that and it still doesn't let me use both apps simultaneously.

    Well you can't use two app simultaneously. I think the developer has to enable the feature to mute the sound, and by mute I mean completely turn off as if the app doesn't have sound at all.

    When in the game, try plugging in your headphones and press the volume buttons simultaneously

    I meant the volume controls on the headphones? The Apple official ones

    Ask the developer if their app supports it. You can find developer support links at the bottom of app listings on the app store.

    You can use Airfoil, to stream music from your Mac using Airfoil for Mac to any iOS device with the Airfoil Speakers Touch app (free). It is as simple as turning on a speaker system, one button and you have the streaming audio from your Mac on your iOS device.
    And iPhone users can refer this reviews about how to transfer, convert DVD to iPhone Video/Music/Photo files.
