1a. If I turn off the drop sensor will it stop stop the bufferover flow sensor or is it loud music overloading the internal mics and enables the buffer overflow?
1b. Will changing the micref level to low have any effect on buffer overflow?

Can anybody shed anymore light on this subject? The primary reason I bought this camera is to record music.
1. Turing off the drop sensor does not fix the problem, I get a different error message with the sensor off.
2. changing the mic level to low does not fix the problem.
3. If I mount the camera on a tripod the buffer overflow error happens more often.
4. if I hold the camera. the error rarely happens.New problem
When The buffer overflow happens, the camera recovers the data, but last time it happened I got a E:31:00 error and could do nothing access camera's drive and the data on it. A friend suggest a program "getdataback". Using the advance tools, it was able to recover the data except the video clip I was recording during the error. After recovering the files I reformatted the camera's drive using the camera's format function. The camera is working fine again. Don't buy the Hard driver version of this camera (xr-150). I am going to by a few 16gig memory card and hope this problem never happens again.
