Headphone output into mic input?

I've got a cheap voice changer that is hard-wired to a computer-style microphone. I cut off the mic and added a 1/8" miniplug adapter, so as to increase flexibility. I need to connect the powered headphone output of an mp3 player to this voice-changer, what is the easiest way to do so? I tried an attenuator I had lying around, but got no results (are attenuators one way?) is there a good (cheap) solution to this problem?

. An attenuator should work. Maybe the impedance of your attenuator is too high. Try using a potentiometer. . I had an old Mac that used a "powered microphone" (whatever that is) and wouldn't work with a regular mic. Just a thought; probably doesn't apply here.
