My hitachi bx45a said found error in image file. rapair data now if i say no it lets me do nothing and if i say yes it says use ac adapter/charger turn power off. i don't even think i have one of those...


Yesterday I filmed with Hitachi camcorder is DZ-GX5020A in back yard, I am actor and press the record is half hours. Camcorder causes "Repair Data" x Found error in image file. Repair data now?" I press the "Yes" is for 6 second is pop screen said " ! Use AC Adapter/Charger. Turn off power". I unplugged the recharge battery and use Ac Adapter with plug in the camcorder is turn on(I click turn on behind of camcorder on film logo) on "DISC ACCESS" then pop screen said "Repair Data" x Found error in image file. Repair data now?" I re-click on "Yes"(like before use battery pack recently) is 19 second on "Repairing" on pop screen repeat again on it's said "X Error occurred. Please Replace disc." I press square make stop. Then check said "DISC ACCESS" Then I press record because it's said "CHECK DISC" doesn't working. I believe the Hitachi camcorder cause damage on disc is erase, malfunction problem cause damage or security something. When I filmed my niece Anna Maria's B-day, Disneyland, etc. are last week agothen I am actor are filmed inside of the mini disc is very important, I tried on Finalize doesn't working cause said "Finalize Disc...! Write protected. Check disc" cause block by Repair Data's security on disc. I disabled security of Repair Data. Unknown. I am very very very angry, depression, disappointment. I am just angry at Hitechtronic, Inc. should responsible, tester, design who make camcorder should be better quality. Can you repair my mini Disc "Memorex "should disabled security of Repair Data? Something please help me for switch your camcorder is different brand out my mini disc on finalize and back to me?. Can you ask tech should fix my mini disc on finalize uses on the other camcorder (borrow is temporary) make finalize? Then back my mini disc (very important) on tech had other Hitachi camcorder is DZ-GX5020A should finalize is very simple. I am very confuse or what.??

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!
