As part of work, I often have to conduct interviews, and these can run up to 20-30 minutes. I currently use an olde worlde tape dictaphone, but I'm seriously considering ditching it in favor of the voice recorder feature on the newest iPod nanos.

Assuming enough free space (I think there's like 8gig free on there right now), can the Voice Memo thing just record for as long as you need it?

I really, really hope so, because the convenience of writing up interviews from digital files is very appealing.

I hope someone can help illuminate me. :)

yeahh... as long as I know.. the ipod 5G can record all the time you want (but you need the space) that goes with the video camera too. So you only need the free space to record as long as you want.

This (http://support.apple.com/kb/HT2396) seems to confirm that the length is only limited by drive space. The 5th gen nano is unique in that sessions > 2 hrs will be broken up into recordings of 2 hrs in duration.
