Welcome to the wonderful world of Archos firmware.

Recording is being implemented in Rockbox right now. We are still in
the early stages and busy testing. So I am afraid that for now you
have little choice but to stick with the archos firmware.

My experience is that sometimes the archos firmware works for hours
without a hitch and all of a sudden it just freezes. There is little
that can be done.

>How to record in mono, for less memory use??

AFAIK The archos cannot record mono from line-in, Rockbox will be
able to do that however.

Yup.. their support is virtually non-existant. No one there seems to
be unable to read and/or write Email.
