AJBR 20
rom OS version: 1.26
RockBox version: 2.1

I've recorded three ~70 minute files with Archos
Jukebox Recorded using line input and sound quality
level 7.

When recording everything seemed to be all right: level
meter was moving, red light was going on/off.. i didn't
really touch the machine while recording. After the
show was finished I pressed "OFF" to stop the recording.

When I copied the files to a PC and played them back
with WinAmp, two of the files went silent around 10-20
minutes. When checking out the files with Windows Media
Player, I could skip in to the later parts of the
recording but in few seconds the sound would go mickey
mouse (fast) and then silent. LAME conversion to .wav
format fails around the 10-20 minute mark in both files.

When played with Archos itself, the file that went bad
around 10 minutes seems to be played correctly even
after the 10 minute mark.
This task depends upon

This report is very old and concerns a Rockbox version from eons ago.

Lots happen in the Rockbox all the time, and if you still have
problems with this matter I suggest you file a new entry.

Here's a picture of how a 70-minute AJBR recorded file looks
like after LAME conversion to .wav format:

Can you try with the latest daily build (2004-06-05) and see
if it works better?

This and 857468 appear to be perhaps the same problem. I've
recently run into this with RB2.4 (official release).
Recording my old vinyl albums to MP3, I've had two occasions
out of about 20 when the recording appears to be corrupt
after 10+ minutes, and won't play past that point on my PC.

Unfortunately, I didn't try systematically on the V2
recorder, but I think it played past the fail point on the
V2. Using MP3DirectCut to chop the recording up into tracks,
the visualisation of the MP3 data shows gaps in the data
from the fail point onwards.

Recording quality 7, 44.1kHz, line-in, Stereo, Ind.
frames=yes, time split=off.
