Reformat your hard drive. That way it will correct the error or flag it as a bad sector.

My JVC HDD GZ-MG365 will not record to the HD. It keeps coming up with an HDD error.


Try to format your HDD on the camera itself. Formatting is available in the menu. Formatting your HDD outside your unit is not recommended. Make sure to back up important files. Hope it Helps

HHD Error


I fixed my hdd error by connecting it to my PC while in camera mode (which still worked) versus video mode and that allowed me to browse both still and video images. Afterwards the camera hdd error cleared and I did not lose any files.

I think this was originally caused by removing the camera from my pc while folder was still open. In the future, I will stop the device using my pc before remove cable.

I have a everio camcorder


Generally an HDD error indicates that the heads are not spinning at the correct speed or at all. Look inside and make sure that there is no debris inside the compartment and try again. If you find nothing, the unit will need to be serviced.

Can't help u much, however, I rec'd the "HDD error" msg as well. All I did (out of panic) was turn off computer, pull out battery, put battery back in and then it was fine again for viewing off camera.
Hope at least THAT helps!
