I tried recording on a H120 with the Voice menus on using the
latest bleeding edge daily build (06-02-01). I did this: I activated
voice menus and numbers for directories and filenames. I then
restarted the unit to get it into a state your Iriver would be.

I then started a microphone recording. This ran without problems
for one hour (then I stopped it).

To walk you through: I made shure that I gave the voice menu
time to finish talking before entering the recording screen.
After entering the screen, I could hear the microphone through the
headphones. I then pressed REC briefly and the HD span up
while the recording started. The HD was running for 6 seconds into the
>From then point on the HD span up every 3 minutes.

Stopping worked OK as well. One brief press of the STOP button stopped
recording and immediately caused HD access. I waited for the HD to stop.
Afterwards I pressed STOP again and from that point on the menus talked

Of course recording is not finished yet. It lacks digital input and has
cosmetic problems like the STOP icon being displayed while recording
or the small font used (no while-recording-screen yet). I use it
often and have had no problems, even with recordings that are larger
than 2GB in size.

Hope this helps.
