Question about Cameras

2 Answers

I have a Panasonic VDR-M50 camcorder. I was attempting to finalize several DVD-R discs and received two different error codes : 0901 and 0280. After receiving the codes, the camcorder locked up and refuses to even correctly access the disks now. I really don't want to lose this data, and Panasonic technical support wants me to send in the camera. However, the camera successfully finalized other discs in between the ones with errors and also still properly records on a new disc. Please help!

    You lost me. I don't understand what you mean by "firmware". Do you think doing so would help me restore the currently unaccesible discs or just protect future ones during finalization?

Hey there

those errors are read/write errors done with the blank disks. this usually happens when the it writes too damn fast or slows down. Heat is also one factor from successive burning...you will get random codes like this. this is one way that your camera protects itslef.

we cant do anything about your data but just be sure to be careful when cleaning your cam.

you can contact there customer support for questions regarding your cam.

    firmware is like a driver for your camera. if your manufacturer has a new firmware for your product, you should upgrade to the new firmware. this usually resolves some issues regarding some errors that your product has.



    you can check your manufacturers website for any firmware upgrade.

HOW TO FINALIZE A DISC


Hi,

I replied you in premium post as well. here is with details...

Be sure to use the AC adapter to power the DVD Video Camera when
finalizing a DVD-R disc. Finalization cannot be executed using a battery pack. Now you will see finalize option in menu and can select it to finalize disc.

Good luck.

MAKE SURE YOU ONLY USE RAM AND -R DISCS IN THIS UNIT. IF THIS CONTINUES THEN THERE IS A LAZER OR LAZER BOARD FAULT.

Error code number 0901


IF THAT DISC WAS RECORDED ON AND THEN REMOVED BEFORE FINALIZING IT WILL NOT FINALIZE. THE CAMERA LOOSES THE MAIN INFORMATION TABLE FOR THAT RECORDING. ONLY THING TO DO NOW IS, IF THE DISC CAN STILL PLAYBACK ON THE CAMERA THEN CONNECT IT TO A DVD RECORDER VIA THE AV PORT AND RECORD. SORRY COULD NOT FIND THAT CODE IN THE SERVICE MANUAL.

Disc access after finalizing


Get the software IsoBuster. It will analyze the disc and extract the images that are still there.

Error code 2881


I found this problem only when I tried to use a RW disk. The camera will not use a rewritable disk. I reformated the disk in my computer but it still would not work in the camera.
