I had the same issue.. More & More often.. . And it turned out to be bad sectors in the HDD (And Growing). After trying to replace the HDD And abandoned the idea (Not cheap), I just use a 64G High speed (class 10?) SD card for my recording.
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.
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!
