Hi,
It seems problem with hard disk that need to be formatted, please make sure you have copied/ transferred recorded files in computer or format HD will delete every thing on HD.
Press Menu button on lcd screen and select settings then select HD and select Format, it will take little time to format hard disk.
Now you can record in camcorder.
Thanks.

"MOVIE RECORDING DISABLED"


Breanna,

Unfortunately, it looks like it is a problem with the disc you have in the camera. If you have another disc, put it in and see if the error message remains. Obviously, the new disc won't have your original video on it, but it will help determine if the cause is the disc.

Recording disabled


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.
