I was getting the same trouble with the "record file error" always showing up on my monitor as well, and no recordings were being written into the SD card. I tried different SD cards and the same message was appearing. I was about to pack it up and return it to the store until I did one last thing...and it worked for me! Solution: Using a paper clip, insert the end of it into the "reset" hole under the SD slot and the system will turn off, restart, and voila!...it will start recording again. I hope this helps everyone who has this similar problem out there. I guess the unit just need a good reboot and get some of the bugs out of it's system.

I Had same problem, if reboot doesn't work, i found that the issue is when you delete the memory card. for some reason it messes up the memory card making it unusable elsewhere. my solution is simple every time its full i would place it on my computer and delete the files there. or you will need to buy a new memory card every time you get the error code.

I am having the same trouble, the last thing that it has started doing is recording all of the different days under one days folder. So it will record about 3 days fine then say on the 29th you can go into the menu and find months worth of footage. Doesn't sort itself either unless you reboot. I was going to try a different memory card but im not sure what to do. I think leaving the monitor off all the time or on all the time might help as it might be an issue caused by turning itself on and off sleep mode? Either way its not doing its intended purpose out the box and was a waste of time and money for me to buy and install it.

I have formatted the SD card and restarted the system. It just comes back all the time. Uniden have a good rep - but a lot of their products lately are just faulty... time to down grade this company :-(

MRB Error message on Gateway laptop 6510GZ. how can we resolve?


First of all I'm not this smart. I found it and pasted it here for you from:
http://www.pcpowerguide.com/windows/damaged-mbr-error-message/

They get all the credit!

MBR is the acronym for Master Boot Record. The master boot record is located in the boot section of your hard drive, which is the first sector on the first platter. When you boot your computer, the master boot record tells the computer's BIOS (Basic Input Output System) where to find the bootstrap code for the operating system.
So if the MBR is corrupted, the BIOS can't find the operating system and you can get error messages like the following ones:
  • Missing operating system
  • Error loading system
  • Invalid partition table
Looks pretty scary, doesn't it?
However, it is usually not that hard to fix a corrupted MBR and usually the rest f the hard drive is just fine and will boot normally once your fix the master boot record.
What Causes Damage to the MBR? A lot of things can cause damage to the MBR such as viruses designed to corrupt the boot sector. Some of them copy the original MBR to another file. Others do this by overwriting the MBR with virus code. In fact viruses and malware are one of the most frequent causes but, any file can become corrupted especially files that are accessed as frequently as the MBR.
How to Fix the MBR The stapes to fix the MBR are slightly different in the different versions of Windows. So I will cover them separately.

  2. When asked, press any key to boot from the CD
  3. When you get the Welcome to Setup screen, press "R" to open the repair console
  4. Enter your administrator password when prompted
  5. At the command prompt, type fixmbr and press enter
  6. When a new command prompt appears, type exit
  7. Remove your installation CD
  8. Restart the computer
Windows Vista
  1. Insert your Vista installation disk in the CD-ROM and reboot the computer
  2. When asked, press any key to boot from the CD
  3. When you get the Install Windows screen, fill in the language and location options and then click Next
  4. Click on the Repair your computer option
  5. Select the Windows Vista operating system and click Next
  6. Enter your administrator password when prompted
  7. In the System Recovery Options, select Command Prompt
  8. When a command prompt appears, type bootrec.exe and press enter to fix the MBR
  9. When a new command prompt appears, type exit
  10. Remove your installation CD
  11. Click Restart in the System Recovery Options window
Windows 7
  1. Insert your Windows 7 installation disk in the CD-ROM and reboot the computer
  2. When asked, press any key to boot from the CD
  3. When you get the Install Windows screen, fill in the language, Time and Keyboard Input options and then click Next
  4. Click on the Repair your computer option
  5. In the System Recovery Options, select Command Prompt

Error message "load needed dlls for kernel"


1. Insert the Microsoft Windows XP CD. Note: If you have a recovery CD or a restore CD and not a Microsoft Windows XP CD it is likely the below steps will not resolve your issue. 2. Reboot the computer, as the computer is starting you should see a message to press any key to boot from the CD. When you see this message press any key. 3. In the Microsoft Windows XP setup menu press the R key to enter the recovery console. 4. Select the operating system you wish to fix, and then enter the administrator password. 5. Type expand d:\i386\ntoskrnl.ex_ c:\windows\system32 6. You will then be prompted if you wish to overwrite the file type Y and press enter to overwrite the file. 7. Type exit to reboot the computer.

Your hard drive is corrupted - virus, bad driver file, etc... You may need to reformat and re-install Windows or operating system. Before you do that, remove the harddrive and "slave" it on another computer to backup you data. The other computer should be able to discover the corrupted harddrive allowing you to do the backup. Then you can proceed with the repair or reformat.

Pogo.ui2.awt.e@61ec49 won't let me play games


try updating your java.

look at control panel - java click on the update tab and then click on update now. let it update then reboot and try your game.

If you can't find the java under control panel then you may have to instal java from Sun.

http://www.java.com/en/download/index.jsp

Download and run to install. Check for updates and reboot then try your game.

After all that it if it hasn't fixed it, it can just be a java programming error.
If the game is populaur these usually are fixed very fast. If you keep trying every few days it should get the updated file and your game will work again.

Notebook won't reboot because windows failed to load because the system registry file is missing or corrupt.


Hi...

This is a Operating System problem, did you face and error during you've reformat your computer. Some of the components of your Operating System are corrupted you need to re install the windows CD to fix the problem.
Mostly of the causes in this problem is not shutdown the computer properly,

Note: If you can not shutdown you computer properly it will cause file corrupted.

Bad Pool Caller - Computer will not boot up.


Your Master Boot Record is corrupt. It's the first file after POST that is used to load your operating system. One way to fix is to boot your computer from the original Windows disk. Let it run for a few minutes, it will seem like it loading but it really is not. Eventually you will get to a point where the CD will ask if you want to install or fix. Choose fix. Let it do its thing then reboot. If that does not work let me know there are a couple of other options. If you want to do your own research google "Corrupt Master Boot Record".
