I bought a Coby Dual Position CD/MD/MP3 Cassette Adapter, my car's cassette player ejects it.

According to the car's manual, these adapters should work. When the player ejects the adapter, I get an error message that suggests that the tape is too tight. How can I loosen up the gears so the adapter will work? Regular cassette tapes work, but not this adapter.

do the gears on the adapter turn freely?

Yes they seem to turn somewhat easily. Auto reverse shouldn't be a problem either, I put a piece of tape on a doo-jiggy that moves up and down, I think it has something to do with the auto reverse, the tape enables the gears to move easily in both directions.
