Formatting new disc

When I put a new disc into my digital HDD/DVD camcorder, it doesn't give me the option to format. The option is no longer in the settings menu, either. It's vanished off the face of the earth. (I've tried three new discs, two different makes. I am not touching the recording surface at all).

How to undo formatting of harddisk of sony Handycam Camcorder HDR-SR10E


If you once started formatting and change your mind while in process you only have one chance: Switch off your cam! If this doesn´t work, put off the battery. It´s the hard way and you might have damaged the last file but might have rescued the rest.
Best wishes

Asking to format full disc


The simple trick is to put a disc into desktop DVD recorder. If Your DVD will be recognized, then copy all content to another DVD or camera. I've seen it before. Must work. Sincerely.

Formatting the disk


Yes, the mini DVD-RW will work on this camera. When you insert the disk and power on the camcorder (with the mode on DISC), the camcorder will try to read the disk, and if it isn't formatted yet, the LCD display will offer you the option to format it (in VR or Video mode). Simply select and click to format the disk

Sony DCR DVD101 Format Error


I had the same problem, but I didn't have any valueable data on the DVD-RW (which was a Sony brand disc, go figure...). So, I backed up all the videos on the disc, tried to format the disc to get it ready to be able to be used again, and got the whole "Access Error" when I was formatting the disc. I tried both the VR and Video format options, the Video option came back with teh "Access Error" while the VR option came back with "Format Error". I put the disc into my DVD burner in my computer and was going to try and format it manually. But, as the disc popped up in My Computer and I right-clicked on the disc icon, there were no options to format the disc, which is unusual. I tried it in a laptop that's about a year old (versus the other computer which was about 4 years old), and as I right-clicked on the disc, an option was entitled "Erase this CD-RW". Obviously this was not a CD-RW, but I tried it anyways, and bam, after about half a minute, the mini DVD-RW was formatted! After that, I put it in the Handycam DCR DVD101 drive, formatted it using the Video setting (my preference), and now it works.

So, moral of the story is...try and format the disc manually on a DVD burning enabled computer. If it doesn't work, try a newer computer. But that's all I have, hope this helps!

Camcorder Problem


You need to do formatting on the disc when using it for the first time. Remember, formatting needs to be done by camcorder. If you used the disc before and formatted it on different machine - it won't work.

Format Error


First option would be to attempt to read the disk in another DVD player, for example on a PC. If that succeeds then transferring the data can be done via the PC. Another thing to try is to reset your Camcorder - refer to the manual to locate the switch and then try again. If neither works then re-formatting is probably the only answer. Always format the disks in the camcorder - not elsewhere.Good luck.
