I was able to find some Memorex RAM disks at CompUSA and tried using different ram disks other than the disk that came with the Panny recorder. It still freezes whenever I'm recording, while watching something else on the disk. It does this usually while I'm CM skipping, fast forward, rewind etc on the current chapter that I'm watching, and not necessarily the chapter being recorded. It does not do this while playing back commercial disks, or just during playback of the RAM without recording.
So the questions to the Forum experts are: Does the Chase or Time Slip normally work with all the other pause, stop, FF, RW, CM skipping using RAM? Or, Chase work FAIRLY well while using these functions? Or, is the Chase somewhat temporamental and don't expection much. Or I just got another lemon Panny and should just return it and try something else.
