Hard Disk error

Hi there, I really hope someone can help!! Basically the problem is occuring when trying to access the hard disk and this error message displays on the monitor: "Hard disk info is incorrect" and on the recorder lcd display it diplays "HDD ERR". When I then try to access the disk navigator for the hard drive the same message "Hard disk info is incorrect" occurs and it prompts to re-initialise the HDD. This will however wipe the hard drive, which is not an option as it contains vital business information I cannot afford to lose. Also, the machine will not power off using the remote control or on/off button. The dvd playback function is unaffected. Any ideas??? Please help, I'm desparate!!

Re: Hard Disk error

Power up your dvd then you you disconnect from the power cord.wait a few mins like 5 mins then you plug it in back and power it up if that does not corect your problem.the strip that leads to your dvd lens needs to be changed.or the micro chip that controls the hd needs to be changed.however take it to a tech.

I have an error code HDD ERR

When your HDD (Hard Disk Drive) does not work, the computer would like a recovery disk, or with windows the Windows disk will do. If only the OS has some damage windows will see so and ask, should I recover the OS already on the HDD. If you choose that opting, the CD will try to recover everything.
If your HDD is really defect and can't be recovered by the OS, toy have to replace the drive and setup the computer again. You have lost all data and all program m's on the HDD, so I hope you have a backup of at least all your data.

Good luck

Did you format the disc with the unit or with a PC?

What does FS error 050 mean?

It's a File System error on the Hard Disk. I think the only solution may be to reformat the disk. If you're only getting this on one track on one playlist, you may be able to access the other playlists to burn all other tracks to CD so you don't lose them

RCA DRC290 "No Disk"

The noise you hear is an attemp to read the disk, which fails. If you can gain access to the optics assembly, try cleaning the lens using a cotton swab and alcohol. If that fails to resolve the problem, the optics are likely failed and will need to be replaced.

Hope this helps,

The error indicates that the hard disk requires replacement. To my understanding, a 40GB Hard Drive was originally installed which you can replace with a larger capacity. Any brand/model actually would do as long the physical dimensions and fittings/connectors are identical.

Replacing the hard drive of course would mean that you have to reinstall your OS and all of your applications. This would be easy if the laptop originally came with recovery CDs. Should they not be available, any OEM installer of your original OS would serve the purpose. Drivers and appropriate software/utilities are downloadable here.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Hard reset

If you put a disk in and all it does is click several times, it's more than likely the spindle motor. It's best just to replace the DVD drive. Recording in the default high speed mode tends to cause the spindle motor to fail over time. Usually in a very short period of time. It's best to set your record speed to the standard mode to avoid premature failure of the spindle motor.
