Ok, I was going AA JFK-LHR and I could not use my cd or cassete player during take-off and landing. After that I could use both.

I then connected to Aer Lingus LHR-DUB. On EI I could use my casette player during the WHOLE flight (including t/o and landing) but could not use my CD player at all.

WHY?

The Irish have weird rules on this sort of thing. Cathay Pacific didn't allow personal CD players many years ago but pretty much everyone does now. They cause no interference I am aware of.

I've been told electronic devices such as personal stereos and CD players cause interference and malfunctions to the plane's navigational systems on take-off and landing. Not sure how valid this is.

It's my understanding that CD players, and cassettes DO NOT interfere with any navigational equipment. However, They do not want anyone to use a CD player or cassette player incase of an emergency... You might not be able to hear announcements or emergency instructions. This is why you can listen to the inflight audio with headsets on, because the announcements come through them.

As Delta Fly Boy says this is rubbish. The ony reason the use of personal stereo equipment is not permitted during takeoff and landing is so that you can hear any emergency instructions. Many of the on-board entertainment facilities we have installed work on similar equipment.
