Question about JVC SR-DVM70 DVD Recorder

1 Answer

I have a jvc SR-DVM70 - The hard drive is about 75% full of data so I don't want to lose that. The deck was working fine recording through the firewire to the hd. Problem was it didn't playback through the firewire into the computer. Digital in through the firewire but not back out. So I took out the hard drive to see if it would be recognized in a Windows cpu. It was not. Reinstalled the hard drive and plugged in the unit. The display just says "loading" flashing over and over. On the "video out (i have a monitor hooked up) it shows the logo for the dv recorder--but the unit will not boot up. i'm pretty sure I put the jumper back onto the hardrive in the same position but Question 1 would be "where does that jumper belong?" 2nd question would be is there a reset function for the hd that does not erase the data on the hd

The hard disk hasn't been recognized in Windows because the JVC runs Linux so the drive was formatted in EXT3 which Windows can't read.
Simple fix to recover all your data: connect the disk back to the pc and boot from a Linux Live-CD like
In there all you have to do is to copy all the content of the disk to your local disk (PCLinuxOS can read and write securely on NTFS/Windows disks). Or you could just burn them to some dvd's.
For the rest: 1 - on the CS pins; 2 - no.

My JVC-SR-DVM600 stops recording dvds after exactly 2:02. It has done this for a year. rest of deck works fine.

It sounds like the rails that the laser runs along have debris on them.
Or, there's a firmware bug in the unit.
Check into restoring factory defaults. I did the same on a Philips DVD recorder and it came back

Driver in windows XP

Use this guide:

It's for a different model, but it works the same.

In a nutshell, when the "AV/C Tuner" driver request comes up, just cancel the install. Then, it will want an "AV/C Tape Recorder/Player" driver. It "should" install automatically and be instantly recognized. If not, follow the instructions in the guide.

There are also instructions in there for disabling the "Av/C Tuner" every time the deck gets connected. Hope this helps - worked for me! -

Hdd no loading

I don't tremember what the fix for this is, but I had it happen to mine. Luckily I had a budget to just take the machine in and have it fixed. It took them one day to fix it and it only cost me $70. if you can afford to just take it in, it would be worth it.
