Question about JVC DR-MH30S DVD Recorder

Installing new HDD & another DVD drive

I was told that the DVD drive failed and the original HDD mysteriously disappeared, (very ingenious mice!!!). When mounted in a PC the DVD drive does seem a little inaccurate/unreliable (but my testing has not been extensive or particulary methodical). I have physically installed a 320gb WD ide drive (brand new). Will the machine operate at all without a DVD drive installed? What is required to initialize/format/bootstrap the HDD?
Are there restrictions on HDD sizes/buffers etc.? ie can the 320gb work? can a 20meg be used?

Problem with HDD is power usage 320gig uses to much, WD 160 is best though just a bit small which may cause issue if you fill it up. WD200gig OK but at threshold of what power supply can handle. Disk needs to be filled with original disk image to get firmware and custom file system. Smallest I've got image down to is 11gig

Samsung r530 bad sector hard drive. Did not come with operating software disc.


Remove the HDD and test, replace if necessary. You can contact Samsung, with your laptop Serial Number, and purchase a Factory Recovery DVD. Or, you can buy a Windows Installation DVD and do a Fresh install on the new HDD.

Replacing hdd with new hdd with noway to recover my os win7 64 bit


Do you have the OS install CD? Hope you do... if not you may be out of luck unless you can borrow a copy from someone. To use your original OEM code it would have to be the exact version OS originally installed on the PC. Dont toss that bad drive yet though. After reinstalling the OS, add the bad drive as a slave and unless you beat it to death... you should be able to access most of the files on the old drive. Good Luck.

Change HDD


As long as you have the XP Home key Sticker it will work on either HDD

if it is a laptop you will have to save your pics etc... to an external HDD or Flash or CD DVD in order to reinstall on the new HDD as it will have to be formatted to NTFS and will erase anything on it
........................if it is a desktop you can make the new drive the Master install the operating syatem and then make the old drive a Slave by moving the jumpers on the hard drives to ....(.BOTH to >>>CS Cable Select .....)

or Master on new drive....and Slave on the old drive...........

Try both on CS first .....On the cable from the motherboard you will put the master (New HDD) on the plug that you take out of the original hard drive and the second plug on the cable goes to the old hard drive to make it a slave............If you change the jumpers the position of the Hard Disks does not matter......Your choice Good Luck

How can I change the original HDD with one bigger


If you clone the 160G drive you will always end up with a 160GB drive. COPY {instead of IMAGE or CLONE} the 160GB contents to the 500GB drive and you'll have lots more room on the 500GB drive.

I have the same problem and I do not know how to fix it. The problem with mine is that I have replace the hard drive with a new one so it does not have the original files. Does it connect through the USB connection and does the computer detect it?

DMR EH55+ a misdiagnosed problem


The DVD Drive is bad. Buy a used DMR-ES15, DMR-ES25, DMR-ES45, or DMR-ES46 with a good DVD drive and swap out your bad drive. And be sure not to record in the high speed mode in the future. Set your recorder to High Speed Mode Off. Then see about getting your money back from the shop that didn't know what they were doing.

Boot manager missing


The hard drive needs to be low level formatted, fdisk'd and FAT32 formatted prior to ME install. I don't know where to get free copies, but I've used both On Track's drive manager and Acronis v10. Bothe are very good your purposes. Both retail +- $50.00

Black box on top of screen during HDD playback mode


Problem solved! Thanks Panasonic Tech Support!!

In case anyone else has this problem, I'll tell you what I found out. This model DVD recorder does not have closed captioning functionality at all. So if this happens to yours, it is not the DVD recorder causing the problem. It is a setting on either your TV, cable box, or whatever else you have hooked up to it.

In my case, my daughter must have accidentally hit the "Text" option on our TV's caption menu. I changed that option back to its original setting, and the mysterious black box is gone.
