Formatting? Hi. I think I have stuffed up the drive - when I turn on the camcorder it asks for the drive to be formatted. I can't seem to do or how do I do this if it doesnot let me access any functions. Help!

When formatting a card for a camera, it's important to make sure to format using the menu settings on the camera itself and not from a computer. This guarantees that the card will be the exact format that the camera requires in order to record images and videos.
In the Home Menu of the camera, navigate to "Manage Media" and select "Media Format". Choose "HDD", and this will properly format the internal hard drive of the camera.

When turned on LAcie hard disk is noisy, then asks formatting

Please try it on another computer. It seems to be a hardware issue with the drive in case you are hearing a noise coming from it. In case it is under warranty, please get it replaced ASAP.

Pen drive display free space 0 byte and used space also 0 byte

Try formatting the drive. Assuming Windows XP, just open your "my computer" icon, right-click on the device and choose format. Be aware, formatting will remove any data you may have had on there previously.

If you're using another OS, or if it's an existing drive, please re-state your question giving further details (what OS, what you are trying to retrieve, etc).

HDD error

I got the same HDD error on mine also. I removed the zif drive from the camcorder and checked it with an external zif hd adapter and the hard drive was good. I emailed JVC and asked them what is wrong with it they said to just mail it in for repair. I think it has to do with deleting the original hidden files and folders that were factory installed because when I checked the hard drive for folders it didn't have any in it(mistakenly deleted or moved). From what I have read from the manual you are not suppose to change folder names or delete hidden files. Hope this post helps you out a little. If you figure any thing else out post more info. Thanks.
