I had recorded several XM programs and played them back. Today I tried to record something and it wouldn't work. When I checked to see if the memory was FULL it said "nothing in memory". What Happened? Is this a defect, or do I need to send it in for repair?

My creations preview great but when I press the save to DVD nothing happens, I am not saying is a smilebox problem, but It used to work just fine. I am just wanting to know what to do because I just wasted 40 bucks if I cannot burn it
This is of course against the rules of your XM user agreement, but if you wanted to 'test' this out, just run the 3.5mm plug from your earphone jack to your 3.5mm 'LINE' input on your computer. Load the free program called "Audacity" on your computer, hit 'record' and you can record and edit the song, saving as an MP3 or WAV file. Again, this is against the XM rules, so this is all just theoretical okay? You would then need a program like Nero to take the MP3 or WAV and record to a blank CD. Just a theory though.
Leave the battery out and see. Do you have the sleep timer set, or have it set for recordings? Try a complete reset and see if that clears things up (unless you have recorded content you don't want to lose).
Press "mode" button so that the reciever is receiving music from satellite signal on the station you want to record. Then press "2Go" button - screen will ask you to press again to confirm - press again, and it will record whatever was being received. It will record over what was already in 2Go. In menu, under "myXm" there are choices to clear the entire memory of recorded music.
You can't download Xm programming, like you can from itunes, where you get a song in 3 or 4 seconds.
Do you mean record music? You must record realtime, either while listening or while the unit is idle in its cradle.
It's easy. while listening to the radio in the cradle (press mode repeatedly to get to Live XM mode), then press the center (play/pause) button. the menu will pop-up, select Record. It will give you the option for Song, Channel, and Session. Just chose one of the first two and press the button. You should see a microphone appear at the top of the screen. It's recording. Follow the same steps to stop the recording. Setting up a recording session is self-explanatory once you get into that screen.
Sometimes this will fix itself if you take the battery out. Otherwise, the best way seems to be to empty the memory, and start all over, recording on a blank slate. These are really pretty awful machines, with endless problems.
The on/off switch on mine just broke, and I say "good riddance."
