I have a Droid Incredible and the only minijack it likes appears to like are attached to my iPod headphones (not headset). Does anyone know of a minijack-minijack or minijack-RCA cable that would make it happy?

This is to connect to car, stereo, bedside alarm. All 3 have RCA R/L inputs but I can get an adapter if minijack-minijack is the only available option.
Whenever I use the cables I have, the status bar shows a headset (not headphones) and if the cable moves just a tiny bit, it cuts out and the music stops playing. I usually have to fiddle with it a bit to get it plugged in and recognized, then keep it very very still as to not lose connection.
The iPod headphone plug looks shorter and wider by just a bit. When I plug it in the headphone icon appears on the status bar, the plug stays put and doesn't cut out.
I guess the cables I have (that work perfectly fine for my iPods) maybe have longer plugs, making it register on the phone as a headset (with 3 conductors vs a 2 conductor headphone jack).
Something from monoprice or newegg is preferred.
