Yes!
It worked! I didn't know you had to hit play twice after you hit start
record. Now if we need to take this of list that's fine, but can some
one explain all of these settings and choices and what they mean? Not
only am I interested in pod casting, but this recording stuff looks
cool. I found out that another note taker that I'm getting has a
recording thing on it and it records cd quality stuff, but at the best
settings it takes up five MB a minute so that's why I'm interested in
how all of this works.

Hi Sarai
Ok, level 7 is like 160kbps, I believe. for podcasting you won't need to
go
that high with your bitrate. so set it to like 4 oor 5 like I was
saying.
and then go to your recording, and then the recording screen option and

press the play button. If you have headphones on, you *should* be able
to
hear yourself. You're in standby or pause mode now. Press play again
and
you'll be recording. after you're done, press the stop button and wait
a
few seconds for the file to write to the drive. You may actually have to

press stop twice for this to work.
  then, press the play button and you should be able to listen back to
what
you recorded.
Hope that helps.
