A problem with a disk after inicjalizing it in windows

I removed the disk from eh-55 and attached it to the PC. The disk wasn't recognized so I inicjalized it. Now when I attached it back to the recorder it wants to format the disk. Is any way to solve the problem?

I have swapped hard drives in my DMR-EH55 several times when I was trying to see if a larger hard drive would give me more recording time. After several days of playing around I was unable to increase it beyond 92 hours. Anyways, back to your question, I have lost the contents of my hard drive twice from swapping around and hooking up to my computer to try and copy contents, so in my experience I don't think you will be successful. Since this is an older post, perhaps you were and if so, please post solution.

PS - firmware update image is available from Panasonic's website if your unit is asking for lLD FVU

Can't read DVD+R that were recorded on LG-DR389 on my PC / Laptop DVD


The DVD+R is the older version that was used, all newer ones use the DVD-R now, your problem is the disc is not recognized in the other players because of the different format.

I have a jvc SR-DVM70 - The hard drive is about 75% full of data so I don't want to lose that. The deck was working fine recording through the firewire to the hd. Problem was it didn't playback through the...


The hard disk hasn't been recognized in Windows because the JVC runs Linux so the drive was formatted in EXT3 which Windows can't read.
Simple fix to recover all your data: connect the disk back to the pc and boot from a Linux Live-CD like
http://pclinuxos.com/
In there all you have to do is to copy all the content of the disk to your local disk (PCLinuxOS can read and write securely on NTFS/Windows disks). Or you could just burn them to some dvd's.
For the rest: 1 - on the CS pins; 2 - no.

No matter what blank dvd i put after preparing it says INVALID DISK !!!help!!!


It may be dust in the connectors. If you remove the cover and use a can of dust remover to blow out any dust, also, blow out the connector holes. I fixed to VCR's like this. Good Luck.

Can't find finalize program on on screen menu


Select DVD drive, use right navigator and look for DVD management  page under other functions. That should offer you a finalize disc choice.               Or if disc is not full, try adding one more file small enough to fit, and finalizing should be automatic. Your disc may not be able to be finalized if your EH 55 didn't create it in the first place.                   Ricardo

Disk error message appear when i turn on my pc.. it can't recognize the system files to boot the windows.. i made repair for the windows and that didn't solve the problem.. Then i installed another version...


Sounds like you have yourself a hard drive failure, or at least one in progress if it works now and then. Replace the hard drive, and install windows to the new drive. This should make it boot.

Once you have it booting, fit the old drive as the slave, and hopefully you should be able to copy any work from the old drive to the new one.

Doesn't recognize disks anymore


This is a common problem with the Lite-on LVW range of DVD recorders due to changes in the construction of more recent DVD R media. It can be solved with a relatively simple firmware upgrade.

You'll need to have a blank CD and a CD/DVD writer in the PC you use to download the file.

Follow the instructions on the website to upgrade your firmware, this should then allow you to write to DVD's once again.
