Some months ago I asked advice about mobile phones and Linux. I was then 
having trouble with my W800i. Some of the problems were clearly phone 
related - it would lock up frequently when playing back long recordings 
that I'd made on its own internal voice recorder.

Now I've just upgraded to a W810i, and I've found it behaves entirely 
reasonably if you drag things directly to the memory card using a card 
reader. Much easier and faster than using the designated Windows software.

Thanks for previous advice.
