DMR E80H hard drive

I have a bad hard drive on my Panasonic DMR E80H. It keeps freezing when I try to use the hard drive. The DVD drive works fine. I puchased a new Maxtor hard drive, but keeps coming up with an error message, and will not format. I don't know what I,m doing wrong, any help would be much appreciated.

DMR-E80H Hard drive problem seems to pretty common. My drive started making the famaous kerchunk noise tonight. After disassembly I see the drive is a ATA133 Maxtor drive....are you sure that you replaced it with the correct drive? I may contact Maxtor and try to get an RMA since the drive is only 3yrs old. Good Luck

My DMR_E80H recorder does not read blank dvd-r disks

I don't have a solution but I am having the same problem (same model DMR-E80H). It will read finalized dvds but won't recognize or play blank or non-finalized dvds. About a year ago I had to replace the hard drive . . . I'm just assuming that the dvd recorder is just slowly breaking down and will need some kind of repair of certain components. (I think we bought it new in 2003/2004?)

Does not play dvd /hard drive crashed /dmr e80h

Hey there, am worried about your data. Try a genius technician around you or else you're at risk losing it all. Actually, those two (DVD and HD) can mean to frustrate. I guess you will opt for online backup so as to guard your vital stuff online. Personally, backing up is my daily bread at www.safecopybackup.com. Hard drive crashed but I a sure u my data was safely retrieved. woooooow! Give it a chance, u'll never look back.

How to transfer Panasonic DMR-E80H recorded DVDs to computer

I have to agree with XELIAM regarding finishing the disk, under the DVD "FUNCTIONS" selection from the remote. I also use the SLYSOFT products to transfer my videos to what ever other mode of video I wish to have, whether iPOD (MP4), or DIVX (AVI) or loads of other options. Slysoft makes a GREAT product

My DMR-E80H will no longer record onto blank DVDs

One solution is to clean the laser lens. Try using one of those lens cleaning CDs.

Also, sometimes the DVD may slip on the spindle, which may cause reading errors. Spindle cleaning usually involves taking the machine apart.

PANASONIC DMR-E80H "Change Disc Error"

This happened to me. I bought a new hard drive. Just got it today! It must be the exact same one. Maxtor, 80G 133.

See: http://www.pricegrabber.com/

Type in the above HD and you will find it. Once you get it and install it, it will automaticly format itself.

Panasonic DMR-E80H Change Disc Error

If you haven't done so, try downloading the firmware update from their support site. Burn the update file to a cd-rom.

I have had numerous times where my unit recovered and I had to format the hard drive(losing all of my shows), but since I did the update this has not happened to me again.
