Question about Panasonic DMR-E85H DVD Recorder

Hard Drive Problem

Last night I tried to dub a disc. I thought it was done dubbing and got this message for the hard drive: "This disc is not formatted properly. Please format the disc in DISC SETTING to record." Is the hard disc fried? Every thing seems to work fine except accessing the hard drive. The unit still shows the proper amount of space available on the hard drive. Thanks for any help.

    I have the same problem. My HDD seems to be stuck -- can't erase, edit or record scheduled programs.

This has happened to me once. I unplugged it overnight and plugged is back in and everything (Except for the for the DVD that was being written when it malfunctioned) Worked fine. I suspect that a Capacitor is going bad but it’s still working (for 4 months) and I will put off any real trouble shooting until it fails hard.

JVC SR-DVM600 Dubbing from HDD to DVD Problem


Have you tried using a different brand disc. When I first purchased my DVM-600 it would not record on Memorex discs. I purchased TDK -R discs and all is fine. In the old-school analog world, all specific format tapes were computable to all machines. In other words, a VHS tape recorded in your VHS recorder will play back in my machine and every other VHS machine. Because the DVD format has so many formats and standards, compatability issues are quite common.

Dubbing to dvd no longer works, no error code


Apparently the disc I was using had something wrong with it, but not until I was almost 4 hours into dubbing something over. Changed the disc and started over and it works fine now. I guess with all the problems I had with the Emerson unit, I figured this one was about to buy the farm as well. Sorry to bother anyone.

Will not dub to dvd-r from HDD in high speed mode


It will only high speed dub in the speed it was recorded in. You can dub, for example, SP on your hard drive to SP on a DVD. You cannot dub high speed, for example, SP on your hard drive to LP on a DVD.

Dr-mh30s. stops dubbing after a few minutes.


I seem to have sorted this problem for me simply by unplugging power.
I actually left it for nearly a week before plugging in again, but I'm sure a day would do, probably less.
Dubbed 2 playlists since, no problem.
Nice simple solution if it works.
