    yes, mysister, who is traveling in the far reaches of China, says the " movie recording disabled" message flashes after recording about 3/4 of the disk. She doesn't know whether to finalize or not and is fearful of losing that which has already been recorded.

    Many thanks for whatever advice you can offer.

Guys hope you all found the solution like me who had same issue. if you noticed, it says about the aspect ratio and that means the formated disc aspect ratio is not compatible with the aspect ratio your camera need. so re-formating the dvd with right aspect ratio solved the problem quickly and we have peace.

The way I fixed mine was by uploading my videos into my computer and formatting the hard drive. Could be that it is just simply too full and needs memory space. Or you can delete some of the videos currently on the hard drive, if uploading is not an option for you at the moment, because every video you have ever taken will be storedin the camera until it is deleted.

Camera shows hd movie recording disableD


HD movie recording disabled: SOLVED for 2 HDRSR5's (work and home): After copying all movies to computer, "DELETE ALL" from HD view. Evidentally if you have been deleting movies using computer, the still images used for 'scene selections' remain and fill its capacity. You must be in HD view when choosing Delete All (that is, rather than just deleting all Standard movie clips)

My camera is displaying a message that states "movie recording disabled" when I try t record something. I have no idea how it got there so I have no idea how to inable it again. Any suggestions?


Follow this procedure to troubleshoot when Recording disabled is displayed by the camcorder.
  1. Verify the disc being used has not been finalized. It is not possible to record additional video on a finalized disc.
  2. Attempt to record on a different disc.
NOTE: If the error is still displayed after performing these troubleshooting steps, service will be required .
