DVD ejected before finalizing and now there is nothing???

I accidentally hit eject while trying to turn on the light while recording at night outside. I was devastated when I closed it and then no menu came up. It was as if it was a blank DVD. My husband ejected the next DVD before done finalizing when I told him not to and the same thing happened. Everything I recorded before gone! I am so scared everything is gone. THe first DVD was my son's birth. I can't imagine it's just gone! HELP!!! THanks in advance!

Use disc file recovery software such as norton' disc file recovery. Unreadable or corrupted disc files can be recovered using these programs in your computer.

Could not finalize disc because of error detection


First try reinserting, but it's probably hit a bad spot.
Might be useable as a data disk. Do a complete format which will lock out the bad spots.

Philips 3360H - can't eject DVD


Try this..turn it off, unplug it for a min or two, then plug it back in. THEN...if the power stays off...hit the eject/open/close button on the panel.

Sometimes this activates the eject mode without turning on the unit. IF NOT, try the remote eject without turning on the unit.

While the above problem is not in the manual, I would try pushing and holding down the Open/Close buttton for an extended period to see if the unit will 'unlock' itself.

Disc Tray Will Not Eject


Just next to the eject button on the actual recorder there should be a tiny pinhole.  If you use a small paperclip and insert it, then push, you should be able to manually eject the DVD.  Hope this helps!

You can press the eject button on the drive behind the front panel or connect the ribbon cable from the drive to a PC to eject it. More instructions are on my website here: www.drx9000repair.netfirms.com/

My Hitachi VM H710A plays just fine, and the picture looks fine. But when it playsback footage or records footage, five to ten seconds later, it stops abruptly, and flashes the word "TAPE". First thing I must add, is that I was using a prerecorded videotape, and was testing it from the beginning of the cassette and the middle of the cassette. I thought maybe the heads were dirty, and so I cleaned them using a cotton swab and rubbing alcohol. I cleaned the head drum with a piece of paper soaked with rubbing alcohol so that I wouldn't get any fibres in the heads. I waited for it to dry and then I put a cleaning cassette inside. To which, it still stopped abruptly five to ten seconds in during playback. I then decided to look at the manual of the camcorder and see the symptom. It says that due to temperature changes that it might cause this symptom. I placed it in a cool room and left it there all day and checked on it, and the camcorder is still doing the same thing as before hand. Then another cause said that it might sense some moisture. I made sure that the camcorder was dry externally and internally, and yet still, same problem. Thats when I decided to take it apart and look inside to see if there was anything odd inside the camcorder causing it to function the way it does. The belt seemed to be working fine, and there was no missing parts. The tracking poles and path alignment was fine, and not loose. Everything simply seemed just fine. So I am unsure as to why my camcorder is operating like this.
