Question about Panasonic DMR-E80H DVD Recorder
SOURCE: DMR E80H hard drive
DMR-E80H Hard drive problem seems to pretty common. My drive started making the famaous kerchunk noise tonight. After disassembly I see the drive is a ATA133 Maxtor drive....are you sure that you replaced it with the correct drive? I may contact Maxtor and try to get an RMA since the drive is only 3yrs old. Good Luck

This happened to me. I bought a new hard drive. Just got it today! It must be the exact same one. Maxtor, 80G 133.
Type in the above HD and you will find it. Once you get it and install it, it will automaticly format itself.

I solved the same problem by disabling SIMPLINK from OPTIONS menu. I own the LG TV myself. The LG TV comes SIMPLINK "ON" as default setting from the factory. Go to MEMU -> OPTIONS -> Turn SIMPLINK to "OFF". This should work....

One solution is to clean the laser lens. Try using one of those lens cleaning CDs.
Also, sometimes the DVD may slip on the spindle, which may cause reading errors. Spindle cleaning usually involves taking the machine apart.

Testimonial: "Not sure where I first saw the suggestion about cleaning the laser lens, but I bought a $20 cleaning disc and suddenly it worked again. Thanks!"
I have to agree with XELIAM regarding finishing the disk, under the DVD "FUNCTIONS" selection from the remote. I also use the SLYSOFT products to transfer my videos to what ever other mode of video I wish to have, whether iPOD (MP4), or DIVX (AVI) or loads of other options. Slysoft makes a GREAT product
