Input has to be set to line for sure. but I'm not possible if it works.

It's a bit of a strange thing. The iriver stock firmware is able to
record from an external mic connected to the line in, even if there is
no microphone preamplifier, which _should_ be needed. I dunno exactly
what they do.
Maybe they are doing an impendance/level checking and passing it
through the internal preamp. I don't know yet if rockbox is able to do
this as well.
There have been a few questions like that on the list a few weeks ago,
but I cannot remember of any informative answer.

good luck, lImbus
