Re: Recording with Rockbox - What went wrong?

Hmmm, I've gotten a few good recordings under ROckbox which makes it
even more puzzling. I also had another related problem the other day.
I'd recorded two files and had listened to them but not all the way
through. They played fine on the AJBR so they weren't 0 length. I used
Win2k CUT (i.e MOVE) to load them to my laptop. One file transferred
fine the other arrived as a 0 length file! Of course, since I used CUT,
it was automatically deleted from the AJBR and the recording was lost
(I should know by now to always use copy then go back and manually
delete...what can I say...a moment of weakness...). Is producing
zero-length files a known problem with recording under CVS03010? If the
recording function has been improved in the latest daily build, perhaps
I'll load it and Rolo to the older one-key queue version when I'm using
it in the car. That can be done, right?
