those nimh batteries are a bit over sized for the edirol so you have to force 
them in a bit. I have lost the plastic foil off of the tips of mine but they 
still work fine. the plastic got so mangled I finally just peeled a bit off of 
the very tip and the batteries work fine.

  Hi Mary,

  Congratulations on your new toy.  May you have many happy hours with it.

  As for the battery situation, I don't seem to have much of a problem changing 
the battery on my WS320M.  I hold it face down, with the end that has the 
headphone and mic jacks firmly in my left hand.  Then with the other end in my 
right hand, I push down and forward on the battery compartment lid.  this 
dislodges the lid fairly easily.

  Hope this helps.

    Hi all,

    I got the Edirol R-1 today and I haven't read the manual yet; (it's now on 
their web site in PDF form, but I converted it to text and wrote my usual notes 
at the top of the file). Very nice machine. Surprisingly, I will be using the 
reverb a great deal; I always wanted portable reverb, so at some point will put 
together a podcast using it and the Behringer mixer. Too bad digital 
multi-tracks aren't cheap yet. The Edirol is really nice and I like the way the 
reverb works. Thanks to the excellent review on BCT, it was fairly easy to 
learn except I had to work a little to figure out how to set the reverb.

    Just thought of something else; maybe somebody has some insight on an easy 
way to get batteries out of these little digital recorders. I especially find 
the WS320 a challenge because there's one AAA battery and no easy way to get it 
out unless you've got a rubber finger or something. Too bad that machine hasn't 
got a little ribbon in it like the book port does. I am getting concerned about 
all this battery changing. At some point the battery cover will break or 
something; and then we'll all have to start using duct tape to keep everything
