Re your recording question, you need, as well as a microphone, to have a Preamp, which essentially boosts the recording volume so that you can use the Archos's line-in as a microphone input.
I got mine via the Archos website, for about €30, but they are available anywhere really.
Even with the preamp though, the recording levels on the archos need to be almost at the very top level and with that I found my recordings still had quite a bit of hiss.
i've got two questions about my Archos jukebox recorder v1. I am blind and want to know if i could get track information spoken for e.g. the acuual position in minutes or the remaining time of my actual track. My second problem is that i wanted to use my rockbox as an audio recorder. I connected a microphon on the lower left where i also plugged in my cable for connecting it to a tape recorder andd to make audio copies of tapes. When i tried it to use with my Microphon i still couldn't get any sound in the my recordings. I tried the recording sources analog and microphon but both did not work. Might the reason for that be tht my microphone has got no amplifier? Or is there something else wrong? I am using Rockbox V2.5.
thx a lot for your help,
