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.
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
To copy files from the HDD to a DVD disc, insert the DVD then press 'Functions' on the remote. From there select the 'Copy' feature and select the items you want to copy. There is also an 'Advanced Copy' available in the 'To Others' menu.
