hey. Turns out it was the battery. I plugged it in, left for about 20
minutes and tried it again. It all works fine now. I have since plugged it
back in and all is working fine now!! yay!
I'll leave it to charge over night and start using it a little more
tomorrow. There's still so much I don't know yet. For example, I did a
test recording, nothing special but it turns out it works. After I saved
the file and rockbox started talking again, it brought me directly to the
folder with the file i had recorded in it.
Is this supposed to happen? I'm sort of used to landing on the usual
settings like bookmarks, general settings and all that. so if there's a way
i can get to those other settings instead of first landing on the files I
recorded that'd be great.
