Try replacing the red sata cable which runs from the HDD under the DVD drive to the main board on the right-hand side. these are a common problem on these models, there cheap and unreliable. you can purchase a better quality cable from a computer store for little money. HDD ERROR is'nt necessery an HDD fault as i found out with my rdr-hx525. if however the HDD is faulty and you buy a replacement, once installed you will need to pair the new HDD with the unit by entering the service mode by unplugging the AC then while holding down open/close and play together then re-insert the AC lead while still holding open/close and play and wait until you see an "S" in the display then let go and the service mode will appear on the tv screen. go to no.9 HDD mode, press enter then go to no.3 Write ID then it will say "execute write ID?" yes and press enter and then it will say "writing HDD serial ID.... OK" once this is done, exit the service mode by keeping your finger on the power button for approx 10secs. your DVD recorder should now recognise the new HDD. if you don't follow this process, you will still have an HDD error message as your DVD recorder will have your old HDD installed and won't recognise your new one. given the amount of time since you posted this fault, you may still have the unit in question in which case i hope this solution is helpful, or for anyone else with the same problem.

Hi

You need to re-format the drive or replace the drive and format it.
Search eBay with "Sony formatter" for more.

Cannot record externally from Humax bt you View box onto Toshiba RDXV60KB ( HDD & DVD modes). As I previously could? I am getting message E26 " Cannot record from this program". But the Tos


This error e26 gets thrown up on some digital rights management programs.this really just means you are not allowed to record...ever increasingly thanks to the big corps like sony drm carrier signals are put into some broadcasts to overcome copying infringements.there still is a way to do this with the right equipment.some tv channels get revenue from their advert counts so they put these signals in to ensure that you can only watch at broadcast or catchup on certain devices.what I can't figure out is I can record anything whilst it's being aired and still transfer to older equipment but not anything with latest ios and certainly not with sony recorders.

Sony RDR-HDC100 DVD HDD Recorder One channel (channel ten) stops recording after 9 - 12 minutes for a one hour show, when pre-set was done through the guide page. It works if preset is done through...


hi, i have the same device, with the same problem, i was told by sony service centre managment that this is a known error that is being researched to find a permanent resolution. They have no fix for it yet and said they will contact me when a solution is available, the only solution at the moment is to manually set timers for programs airing on channel ten, eleven and ONE.
