Hi Julius,

Do you have any experience with the "sample dropping" problem on the 140?

When it came out I was quite interested, but I was dissuaded by
reports of a persistant problem -- where periodically recordings would
have several hundred sample dropouts [according to owner analisys,
when the HD was being written].

As I recall iRiver promised a patch, never delivered, then removed
uncompressed WAV recording as a feature from subsequent models.

Depending on the source material this was apparently not always highly
audible, but if you fed a controlled signal in it was ubiquitious.

I'd hoped the Rockbox fw might address this but have never heard. It'd
be great if the problem was circumvented!
