I am sorry to say but once you reformat the hard drive their is nothing that you can do to recover. now if your unit crashed and you could not boot again then the information could have been recovered.

It appears the hard drive is frozen. What can be


Nothing can be done to fix the drive, but it can usually be replaced.

Once a drive is broken it's usually unrepairable. Even if it's just the drive motor it's cheaper to replace the entire drive and is an opportunity to upgrade to a larger capacity.

Note that I've not done this on your individual model before and on many makes and models standard pc drives are used but sometimes use specialist software to format the drive in a different way to those on pc's. Just search for "DMR-E85H drive upgrade" and you'll find the info and tools required to do the job.

Why won't the DVD play on my computer? Help, please?


Put it back in the recorder you made it with and make sure it is finalized. Also make sure your DVD drive in your computer is compatable with that format.

Hard Drive Problem


This has happened to me once. I unplugged it overnight and plugged is back in and everything (Except for the for the DVD that was being written when it malfunctioned) Worked fine. I suspect that a Capacitor is going bad but it’s still working (for 4 months) and I will put off any real trouble shooting until it fails hard.
