Wreck of the Zoom H2 ?

Till the day before yesterday I was happy with my handy recorder. Then I bought a 2 GigaByte SD-Card. The manual says, the recorder works with 2 GB-cards.
So I wanted to record a concert of classical guitarists (among them my daughter! pride, pride) (joined by percussion, as you will realize). I thought of recording the whole concert and afterwards editing the music to publish one or two pieces here.
BUT: the %&$§?*# thing didn´t work. After about 2 minutes the recording stopped saying: "Card is full".
Nonsense, it should have lasted 33 hours with this card (and settings to "mp3, 128 kbps"). But their was no more space on it.

Thanks a lot, Pat.

To my joy and pride at last I can announce a new piece from our Transatlantic Jam Session. Dick from Scotland threw in his small pipes. Here is the beginning of "Raglan Road" with pipes. As soon as we completed the song, I´ll post it. Just couldn´t wait ...
By the way: The Zoom-H2 tool really helps.
