You need to press the "play/pause" (center) button to start the actual
recording after getting into the recording page. It sounds like you
are getting into the recording page (one press) but not starting the
recording (a second press).

When you enter the recording page, it is ready to record, but not
recording (you can adjust the recording level properly by using the up
and down keys).

If you are recording, pressing the "play/pause" button again starts a
new recording, so pressing it an extra time isn't fatal.

Pressing the "off" button BRIEFLY stops the recording but you are
still in the recording page. DO NOT HOLD IT! Pressing "off" briefly
a second time exits the page (IIRC).

be able to properly close the file before the AJR hardware turns off
the power. The result is that you will have all the audio (except the
last second or so) on the disk, but not visible. You can recover the
file with Windows file recovery tools if you need to and nothing has
overwritten it in the meantime.
