Same problem, same camera. Interestingly, it happened after two years and coincidentally when I changed to a different brand of tape (TDK) after using Sony and JVC tapes.
Solution (as suggested on some other web site) is to eject and then manually wind the tape a couple of turns. This can be done by sticking one flat blade screwdriver in the tape locking tab (bottom middle of case) and using another to manually wind the tape reel. Re-insert the tape and there should be no error code and all should work fine.
Hope this helps.

Don't use USB to transfer video from a miniDV tape based machine. Use Firewire. Cheap and easy to install if your computer has an available PCI slot or PCMCIA slot (laptop).
USB will not be successful. Joe Thanks for choosing Fixya!
