Adjust your settings to continue recording when the hard drive gets full. If 'Overwrite when full' is enabled, the system should start overwriting the oldest data when new data is recorded. Note that these are two different settings: 1) Continue recording (or do not stop recording) when disk is full and 2) Overwrite when full is enabled.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: the box wont record saying

Hi, this is a common problem, you need to get in touch with the place you have bought it from and tell them your hard drive is corrupt and will need formatting and re-installing the firmware, now depending on how long you have had it they may tell you you need to pay to have it fixed, if they tell you that then you would be better off getting a new one.

the chances are something has over heated and caused the data on the hard drive to be corrupt so even though it only showing 26% it means the rest of the hard drive has corrupt data and cant be recorder on so you only have 26% of your hard drive left that you can use.

over time this will happen to all dtv recorders its nothing you can do either contact the place that sold it to you or have a look in the book that came with it and contact their customer support and explain whats happening, they will then tell you how to access the service mode and this will allow you to format the hard drive and may solve the problem.

we dont have the service menu details here as its only sagem who hold them and they keep it to themselves as its what their engineers use to reset the system and solve any problems.

it may or may not work but you have got nothing to lose so either take it back to where you bought it from and ask them about an exchange or refund or look in the handbook and call sagem customer service team and ask them how to format the harddrive

also check in the settings that this is turned on: OAD Auto Updates enabled.
make sure it is enabled.

also try doing the following to reset the box it may work but most of the time if the hd drive is corrupt it will need replacing before you can record again
1. Turn off the unit for 5 minutes to cause a full reset.
2. Turn on the PVR with everything attached except the aerial.
3. You will get an Er-09 on the display. On my PVR there was no output on the TV screen whatsoever (totally black screen).
4. Press 'OK' on the remote.
5. The box reboots in standby mode.
after this it should say OAD complete this means the firmware has been updated if it dont do anything then the chances are you have all the latest updates and you hard drive is no good.

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

Funlux surveillance hard drive issue. 1 tb, is full, need formatting , it takes 5 minutes plus to format. Every 2 minutes it reboot, trying to record, won't finish formatting. Disconnected cameras,


You did not post the model of the unit. There is a port for external drive support and there is an internal drive depending on the model. You can try formatting on a computer if you would like or you can select OVERWRITE recording when the HDD is full
1. Access the [General Settings] and open the [Disk Drive Info] page. 2. Open the drop-down menu at the top next to the "Hard Disk Drive Full", select "Overwrite" and press save.

Sdvr cctv won't stop beeping beeps about 3 times every 10 min and evetually lose everything on monitor motion is off overwrite is on. seems to be recording though


Sounds like a trouble signal. Possibly a problem or difficulty with your security system, such as a loose wire, a poorly aligned sensor or a low battery status.

Swan dvr wont record


It sounds like a problem that might be an easy fix. Since the system CCA board doesn't see the HDD. Can you view any previously recorded images? How are the connections to the drive? Bad IDE ribbon cable (yes do do fault), power to the HDD and how about the drive? Some of my DVRs require the manufacturer drive, not a simple off the shelf (i.e. Lanex or Verint).
Try that and reply back. :)

Dvr will not record. i get the message, " hard drive full" is there a way to erase what is on the hard drive?


You can erase the contents of the drive or set the drive to overwrite when full. Erasing the drive is the equivalent of reformatting (you will not be able to recover the images easily).

To Erase/Format, enter the Menu system and select Hard Drive Setup (seventh line in the list). Press Enter, then go to HDD Format (fourth item in the list) and press Enter. Then enter your password (set up under System Setup) but the default password is 111111, if it is on. If you entered the correct password, the screen will flash HDD Formatted 3 times. Press Menu to exit the menu. (If the incorrect password was put in, Incorrect Password will flash.)

To overwrite, again go to Hard Drive Setup then select the first item, Drive Full. Press Enter to toggle Overwrite On or Off. You will be able to recover the images until they are overwritten.

I hope this helps.

Sony Handycam DVD 650 - After recording on a disk and the disk is full, it went to a screen that is locked. It says "Formatting Start" and only offers formatting issues. I do not want to format as it...


Dear Sir,
Yes you are right, lots and lots have lost very nice recordings on these silly CD and Hard-Drive cameras, and with so many people having problems I hope Sony go back to the 8mm takes because some recordings we all like to make mean too much for us to just re-format over them.
While your CD is in your camera press the reset button, that puts menu back and camera like new, your disk will pop out okay that way.
I do think though that you should try to pick up a good Sony 8mm camera for those important movies, that way you know you always will have them.

Using video on camera and it stops after 7-13 seconds. I have a 2gb memory card in it and it says I have 53 minutes to record but still stops after seconds. what am I doing wrong?


This happens when card and camera are not communicating properly.
Buffer runs full and the recording stops.
Try formatting the card in the camera. Formatting will erase the card, so download movies and images to the computer before formatting.
