Hi Barry,
 I've been down this path (as have a number of others) and have come to the
conclusion: VPED can't record on a SB16. VPED was designed on a SBPro and
will record fine on it, but the SB16 must in some way be slightly
different. I've tried all the recommended "fixes". No luck. It simply locks
up the moment you try to record. Only solution is to "upgrade" to the lower

Tony, AE0M, was kind enough to share his VPED voice files. They
are on K2MM's ftp site.
