Swann Pro 4000 DVR WD2500 drive Displays DMA error.

Hi everyone,

I have a Swann system and all of a sudden when you turn on the machine it shows master HDD detected then Shows DMA Error and starts beeping.

The files on the hard drive have been recovered by a data recovery company but they cannot play. They cannot copy them to another Hard drive and dimply slot it in because the DVR has its own format method.

Is there any way to play the files on the DVR Hard Drive on a PC?

Is there any way to fix the DMA error?

Thanks in advance.

JS

SOURCE: File Sytem Corrupted!

The dreaded "File System Corrupted" error is one that comes time and time again. Did you drop the player or hit it by accident? If so, then the pin connecting the battery to the micro hard drive has probably been disconnected. You can removed the back of the player with a screwdriver, but you risk tearing off the S/N sticker. If you decided to do it anyway, remove the back of the player and then simply fit the multi-pin connector back into the hard drive. Replace the back and screw it in, and then turn it on to see if it works. I did this with my old RD2762A, and it worked like a charm. Hope this helps!

SOURCE: Recovery of content on DVR-625 hard drive

usually hard drive failure boils down to files not opening succesfully, or a random internal failure, not a physical issue with the hard drive, however because dish network repairs these issues on a large scale the fix is to wipe the software and start over which means all recordings are lost, unfortunately recovering these recordings is basically impossible... if you often record things which are imperative to your business i would suggest getting a 622/722 dvr which will allow you to download these recordings to an external hard drive via usb, you will have unlimited use uploading and downloading programs for a one time fee of about 40$

SOURCE: HDD error

Hi guys,
Have you tried to format drive? try to do slow format on the FAT32, and when you put the drive into camcorder should work fine. Also make sure if you have got just one partition isntead of for example 2 or more.

No its not. You might get it display an image but will probably be black and white as the resolution on the cam is higher than the supported resolution on the dvr

I have a swann view security system ,,and something not working cause it only says mode not supported ,,,,, how do you fix this


Have you tried a hammer? Kidding!!! Usually this is a conflict in resolution between the DVR and the TV. You may need to lower the resolution of the TV for the particular input you are using. You may have a 1080P TV and a 720P DVR. Once they match, the issue should be resolved.

What spyware software did you run? Do you have the name of the software?

many spyware software available on the internet are actually viruses and malware.

Download the file combofix from the link below and run it on your system. This should remove all viruses and errors on your machine
