Question about Sony Video Cameras

1 Answer

I was using my handycam DCR-SR68E in an open park. I have no clue why, but suddenly the recording stopped. I could see an error where the handycam was attempting to recover the data. and the end result was pretty ugly. I can now read "HDD format error" when i connect the handy ca to my pc. My pc cannot detect the external device. I am afraid that I have lost all of my data. Any help in this regard would be highly appreciated. Thanks in advance. Nimish Inamdar

Hello

Download THIS.

Download this free tool and run it on you card and it should be able to recover all pictures provided that you have not used the card since formatting. I recommend using a card reader for this.

After downloading and running (no installation required) , simply select deep scan and your memory card and it will start scanning, To recover a found file , right click it and select save.

Please note that the file names will probably not be available and also that some of the properties of the photo like date taken could be lost.

Please let me know when you have recovered your pictures safely or contact me if you need further assistance.

Regards
Andrea

    Hi Andrea,

    Thanks a lot for the recommendation.
    I do have an issue in your suggestion.
    I see the error E:31:00 flashing on the left hand side upper corner of my screen.
    In this my hard drive is not getting recognized, and hence I cannot install the application you have suggested.
    Since it is not a SD card, but a hard drive, I cannot read/write the card using any memory card reader.
    Can you help further?

    Thanks in advance.

Buffer over flow movi recording time


The error description is not very precise. Anyway:
You should check the Harddisk for Filesystem errors/defective blocks. Don't know if the Camcorder has a built-in function for this. It could also help to delete all data and to reformat the drive.

Otherwise you may need to replace the harddrive (While you are at it, you could put the drive into an external USB cage and check it with your computer). Sounds like a complicated task.

SONY HANDYCAM DCR-DVD105 ERROR MSG C:13:02


Try to use a cotton swap to 1st clean the recording lens or blow gently on it. Place an empty disc in, format the disc, record a little scene. Turn off camcorder. Place the error disc in the camcorder, turn on the camcorder all the way to play/edit. If this doesn't work turn it to record and try to record. Worked for some of my error disc

Sony Handycam E:40:00 Error Help


Take the battery out and turn selection switch to camera and then turn it off. Put the battery back in and its working again.
if that doesn't work try
Try smacking the side of the camera relatively hard with the palm of your hand. Eject the tape and reinsert. You may need to do this a couple of times.
