The Microtrack uses CompactFlash cards to record, so this should not

experience has stated that their Microtrack originally delivered 3

less than an hour.

just as a point of reference, the rechareable battery in my minidisc recorder just failed, after a similar pattern of degrading over time. it got so it wouldn't hold any charge at all, though you could still use it with its external power pack (AA batteries).

but it was no big deal replacing it online, since it was replaceable. M-Audio made a huge design error when they did that. and failing to pay attention to the problem when users complain is unconscionable, let alone just poor business practice. nothing like alienating your user base.
