The microphone is tiny indeed.  I don't have the BP in front of me but if
memory serves, it is between the USB port and the end of the unit.  It's a
pin hole.  Lou

> I personally think the recording side of Book Port a good idea especially
if you are in a hurry.  It is slightly distorted though if you talk near to
the Book Port.  In fact, one of the first things put on my Book Port was
Frank wishing me a happy birthday.  I did do one or two memos on holiday as
I had a shopping list to do.  However, I tend to suspect that, when I
deleted one or two of the memos I had, this might have caused my MP3s to
become white noise.  This may need experimenting with.

recording. As it turns out I checked with a friend with a bookport and had
him play around with recording and his bookport locked up, he couldn't get
out of the memo folder and the unit said recording paused when he tried to
read a file.

anything. Even though the quality is not the best I think it would be quite
handy if it worked reliably. So I guess what I am asking is for a few people
to thoroughly test the recording feature to see if their unit eventually
crashes or otherwise goes nuts. If it is a problem with the latest beta, how
about a straight answer as to whether it is possible to downgrade the
firmware to the latest stable release.
