Currently I'm using the...

Would anyone be so kind as to answer this question? I'd also like to know. Is the line-in recording volume (gain) adjustable? If so, is it adjustable on-the-fly (i.e., while recording)?

A terrible eBay Pilot seller - do not purchase from "Global Trader"

Since the Pilot is no longer sold by Best Buy, I turned to eBay to buy one.

I used the seller "Global Trader" who has a large number of Pilots:

How would you guys sync a 40GB library to the Pilot's two 8GB drives?

I'm sure there are lots of people here with the same problem but I can't figure out how you might be dealing with it!
