    This is not a $10 response. You just need to give me the solution, not "IT COULD BE"
    I am waiting for a step by step solution.

This is an 'it could be' , is an 'it it'

Disk Error(1) = Hard disk fault, either logical or physical.

If you can format the hard disk, that means that it was a logical fault, and simply formatting will solve the problem.

If it does not format, then the hard disk is physically damaged (heads , motor, control board) and then you need to replace the hard disk.

This unit support a replacement hard disk that ranges from 80 to 300 GB, get a replacement disk installed at any electronic repair shop, or call Sanyo customer service, and ask them a quote for the repair.

This is usually a problem related to the hard disk(s) themselves; this may not mean that the hard disk is bad, but could mean incorrect cabling or another issue making it impossible to find the hard disk. The controller or interface to the hard disk could also be at fault.

There is a general failure of the hard disk. Either an error message is being displayed indicating a failed disk at boot time, or some other wholesale problem is either preventing access to the hard disk,

If your PC uses a separate hard disk controller, check all the connections to it. Try removing it from its slot and reinserting it; sometimes the card may not be seated properly and this will fix it. If possible, try switching the controller with another one and see if that fixes the problem.

First try to reset the unit :
Press and hold "MENU RESET" button on the front panel, then press "ALL RESET" button. DVR will reboot, and release "MENU RESET button" when buzzer rings.
Note:Recorded images and MENU settings cannot be returned before the initializing.
If still the error exists then you need to replaced hard disk one in the unit ,

Unfortunately, this is not a problem that is likely to be diagnosed remotely. There are a number of possible problems that can result in the symptom you describe. Something as simple as a defective power supply can cause this. The more likely cause is either a driect problem with the harddrive itself (platters or attached controller) or the driver board within the DVR. Without seeing the machine and taking measurements inside, all we can provide you are possibilities. Since this is a security system, I would strongly recommend that you see a local servicer for assistance.
I can provide a verification of the diagnosis if you wish to post the findings here that the estimate makes sense.

Keep us posted,
Dan

Sounds like a hard drive problem, you may need to format the drive or replace it if its faulty, backup your data if possible and perform a format or similiar in the settings, it should work normally after this, if not you most likely have a hard drive failure and contact your dealer or the maker for warranty repairs if it is still covered by warranty.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Offhand, this could be indicative of a failure of the hard disk that records the video. Initially, have you tried if you could retrieve/view previous recorded sessions/dates? Additionally, if the system is relatively new, have you tried a format?

Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

    Appreciate the postback and additional information.

    On similar incidents, "failure to complete initialization", the culprit would be that the hard disk could no longer be recognized by the system and so it goes into a loop, restart look for the HD (hard disk), could not fin, restart.... To confirm, the HD must be ohysically removed from the DVR3709, attached to a SATA/IDE to USB adapter and connected to a computer. Doing this would make the DVR3709's HD as an external storage device of the PC and utilities such as scandisk, format, chdsk and others could be used.

This usually (but bot always) is caused by the information in your BIOS not matching the type of Hard Drive in your system when you have an old system that doesn;t automatically detect hardware. When you press F1 it attempts to ask the HD what type it is, and since it boots OK I guess it's fairly smart.

What you need to do is enter the proper information into your BIOS for this type of Hard Drive. Depending on how "old" this PC is, you may need to specify how many cylinders and heads it has. most of the information should be on the label of the Hard Drive.

    there can be two masters, secondary master and primary master.( Which by the way is the better way to setup your hdd configuration, 2 harddrives on seperate IDE cables) There just cant be 2 masters on one ide cable, in which case the second drive wouldnt be picked up by the bios as far as I know.
    Cant say ive seen the diskerror before so follow suggestion one and check in the bios if the drive is being picked up correctly.

Have an error message on screen sayng NO HDD???


The system does give this message when the logic board can't access the Hard Disk.
Can be anything, from a complete over filled HD till a defect controller or just a corrupted first sector. Check what the user manual says about initialise the hard disk. If that won't help, consult a tech close to you. Btw. after an initialise or format you will have lost everything you recorded till now. So if something important is on the disk, ask a tech to get out the drive and recover the important stuff. This could cost you.

Lenovo c340 6 gb How To Setup


Hi,
This issue may occur if one or more of the following conditions are true:
·The basic input/output system (BIOS) does not detect the hard disk.
·The hard disk is damaged.
·Sector 0 of the physical hard disk drive has an incorrect or malformed master boot record (MBR).
Note: Some third-party programs or disk corruption can damage an MBR.
·An incompatible partition is marked as Active.
·A partition that contains the MBR is no longer active.
Step 1: Check all hard disk and interface cables are properly connected and are in healthy state.

Hp labtop non system disk error


Hi, this error most often occurs when you try to boot your computer up with either a flash drive (USB drive) or a CD/DVD already in the computer. The system checks these drives first for operating systems before the hard drive, and when it doesn't find your operating system it displays that error. Remove the disk or flash drive and try to boot your computer again, and the error should go away.

Non system disk or disk error


This error can be a couple of things. If the "boot block" on the disk has become faulty, the system won't recognize that the disk has an operating system on it and will generate this error message. If the disk is defective completely, the same error will occur. If you have a boot floppy or CD, try re-writing the boot block on the disk. If that fails to resolve the problem, the disk is defective and will need to be replaced.

Error Message: PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA
Explanation:
This Stop message occurs when requested data is not found in memory. The system generates a fault, which normally indicates that the system looks for data in the paging file. In this circumstance, however, the missing data is identified as being located within an area of memory that cannot be paged out to disk. The system faults, but cannot find, the data and is unable to recover. Faulty hardware, a buggy system service, antivirus software, and a corrupted NTFS volume can all generate this type of error.
User Action:
This Stop message usually occurs after the installation of faulty hardware or in the event of failure of installed hardware (usually related to defective RAM, either main memory, L2 RAM cache, or video RAM). If hardware has been added to the system recently, remove it to see if the error recurs. If existing hardware has failed, remove or replace the faulty component. Run hardware diagnostics supplied by the system manufacturer. For details on these procedures, see the owners manual for your computer. Another cause of this Stop message is the installation of a buggy system service. Disable the service and determine if this resolves the error. If so, contact the manufacturer of the system service about a possible update. If the error occurs during system startup, restart your computer, and press F8 at the character-mode menu that displays the operating system choices. At the resulting Windows 2000 Advanced Options menu, choose the Last Known Good Configuration option. This option is most effective when only one driver or service is added at a time. Antivirus software can also trigger this Stop message. Disable the program and determine if this resolves the error. If it does, contact the manufacturer of the program about a possible update. A corrupted NTFS volume can also generate this Stop message. Run Chkdsk /f /r to detect and repair disk errors. Restart the system before the disk scan begins on a system partition. If the hard disk is SCSI, check for problems between the SCSI controller and the disk. Finally, check the System Log in Event Viewer for additional error messages that might help pinpoint the device or driver causing the error. Disabling memory caching of the BIOS might also resolve it. For more troubleshooting information about this Stop message, refer to the Microsoft Knowledge Base at http://support.microsoft.com/support.
