Hi Sarai
Ok, what you have is similar to mine, but with a few differences.
Mine has a similar setup, but in mine you have to adjust the volume in the
menus which is in sound settings. Mine completely skips recording, so mine
is definitely a player. and doing some looking on Ebay of what I ended up
getting, it looks like this is right. Ihad the models confused a bit. As
another guy on the list correctly noted, there's no such model as an
"archos Jukebox studio recorder". So I've now placed another bid on Ebay
for a jukebox recorder which is what you have. I like your description,
it's a good one so that I'll know exactly what to do if/when I get it,
hopefully I'll win it!
and it won't set me back too much either.
So this should be pretty workable for me.
