    Same problem. I took the disc out wiht footage of the first 3 months of my baby boy and when I put it back in it showed no recorded scenes and says movie recording disabled. Even if disc is ruined and can't be recorded on is there any way to get footage off of it still somehow? I am devasted about losing this footage!!

    I bought it brand new and it hasn't worked right yet! When ever i put a disc in it reads error and doesnt allow me to record anything. I've tied different dics and ive sent it in to sony twice to be serviced and it still wont let me record and if i do get it to work it takes 3 or 4 min. to get it to get done reading the disc and by then what i wanted to record its to late. Now im stuck with a camera that doesnt work and best buy wouldnt help. Is there anything a person can do about this?

I am also having this problem. My dvd's with data sometimes goes bad. I have lost 4 to 5 dvds with about 20 minutes of family video. Some really good times gone from this error. At first I thought sitting my camera by a magnetic speaker was causing me to lose dvd data, but I have confirmed thats not it either. I also tried the battery, the camera mode, and it seems to always be in the dvd after some camcorder glitch error. Please help... Has anyone fixed this yet?????
HOW???

I also don't think it has to do with taking the disc out since i did that with a new disc and it still works. i am unable however to view my data on the disc where the error 'movie recording disabled' appears--and it sounds like some of you can view the data. i'm wondering if my whole disc is bad?

My camera does not show what i have taped


Regarding no picture in playback is problem mostly of dirty / clogged video head in Sony handy-cam and can be corrected by using good quality video head cleaning tape.
As far as memory stick picture concern, I think lost pictures (42)would be in other folder on memory stick.

Basically, the error message indiactes the reels are not turning, either because of a defective tape or a fault in the mechanism. Try a new tape. If the problem persists, you will have to have the camcorder serviced. please be sure to rate this solution. Thanks!

Sony Handycam Digital 8: won't accept tape


I was having the exact same problem with my sony handycam. I actually came across this website looking for the answer and noticed many people having the same problem but there was no solution to it.

I just happened to go to the sony website and decided to watch the tutorial on setting the camera back to the factory settings. It actually fixed the problem! I don't know if this will work for everyone or even how long it will work, but I figured it was worth a try. Good luck!

Sony Handycam E:40:00 Error Help


Take the battery out and turn selection switch to camera and then turn it off. Put the battery back in and its working again.
if that doesn't work try
Try smacking the side of the camera relatively hard with the palm of your hand. Eject the tape and reinsert. You may need to do this a couple of times.
