JVC DR-MX1 loading error - how can I retrieve hard disk hdd conte

I have a JVC DR-MX1 DVD/HDD/VHS recorder which came up with the dreaded 'loading' error after 2 years of use. I have had it looked at by an approved JVC repairer who told me that the circuit board is fried and the unit is beyond economic repair. I have priceless camcorder footage on the 160gb hard disk of my children when they younger; the footage is of great sentimental value and I am desperate to retrieve it before discarding the unit. Is there any way I can download the footage to a PC or other medium? For instance, how would I connect the hard disk to my PC?

    Thanks - I have a WD 640Gb external that I use to back up my other data. I will try to google a data recovery specialist and keep my fingers crossed that they will be cheap!

Well, i sympathize with your problem- it may be a bit expensive, but there are 'data recovery' services available on-line. if the data on the hd is still intact, then they can either 'burn' it to dvds, or transfer it to an external, usb hd. then, if your pc has a dvd burner, you can archive the content to dvds! store them in hard case holders-make copies and store them in a safe place! fire-resistant safe, safe deposit box, with a trusted relative or friend, in case the originals become damaged. also, use the external to archive any future pictures, or videos- then back them up on dvds! would suggest 500GB-1TB usb 2.0 external,if your pc can support it! $85-150. cheap!
might send the external along with the 180MB to whatever service you decide to go with, that will save some $$, in the long run. (or it should- research what the recovery services offer!).
good luck!

Firmware crashed, unable to get repair in UK


I also have a faulty unit with discs that hadn't yet been finalised. You can access the discs via your PC. I used a program called IsoBuster by Smart Projects. There is a free demo which you can download. Just google it.

As for the faulty power supply, just scrap the unit and DON'T buy JVC again. Eventually, they will have to listen to the economies of scale.........

Excellent info


I spent alot of time working thru the issues to produce an image for someone else. He forgot who had the problem and was expecting me to run round finding/upgrading my internet connection to upload a 11gig image for him.
What I will do is mail 3 dvd along with program required to create disk. Note you need two PC as the program only creates disk from image downloaded from ftp server. The program is freeware G4U which you'll find easily on the web.
Note my TV system is PAL and I'm not sure if this can be changed.

this happened to mine - could be that it is getting too hot (mine is in a cabinet) - turning the machine off (by unplugging the plug, not putting on standby) and letting it cool down seems to work.

However, the dvd has now stopped working (not related to the above problem) - hence me looking
