Thanks Lou. I'll give the home remedy a go first and see if it yields 
any results before sending the disc out.

What is AFAIK? (Sorry, I'm not very familiar with the terminology in 
this field). Since I'm Mac based the recording was made in uncompressed 
PCM mode and not the compressed ATRAC mode. Is this what you were 
referring to?

I set the recorder up and went back to bed. Some time later after it was 
finished I brought the unit back in. I locked the disc and checked the 
recording. Upon returning from the trip I checked all the recordings 
again. I discovered the new error as I was transferring all files to the 
computer for backup and storage. So it was working at one time, but then....


p.s. Eastern Whipbird from Queensland Australia. Obviously from one of 
the good discs.
