    'Error Has Occurred.

    Error Code No. 2881.

    Please read the manual.'

    this is a media incompatibility error. Basically the media your using is one that is not readable by the system. Regardless of these other helpful people saying its a system update problem. If you have the manual its there:https://www.manualslib.com/manual/117438... . this will take you straight there. Cerrtainly saved me some money and hassle but not before buying the wrong discs. Hope this helps to all those M50 users still outr there.

I found this problem only when I tried to use a RW disk. The camera will not use a rewritable disk. I reformated the disk in my computer but it still would not work in the camera.

You need to change the file format from mpeg to dvd - download AVSvideo convertor and this will change your camcorder film to a format that will burn onto a dvd disc.

    All I can tell you is that my panasonic vdr-m50 has been a pain since day 1. I now get the error code 2881 and there just does not seem to be a whole bunch of help or support from panasonic. The software is horrible. the camera is over priced. Unsatisfied seems to be the trend I have going with panasonic. I will never own another panasonic product in my life. If you like to donate money, then go with panasonic.

MAKE SURE YOU ONLY USE RAM AND -R DISCS IN THIS UNIT. IF THIS CONTINUES THEN THERE IS A LAZER OR LAZER BOARD FAULT.

Error code number 0901

IF THAT DISC WAS RECORDED ON AND THEN REMOVED BEFORE FINALIZING IT WILL NOT FINALIZE. THE CAMERA LOOSES THE MAIN INFORMATION TABLE FOR THAT RECORDING. ONLY THING TO DO NOW IS, IF THE DISC CAN STILL PLAYBACK ON THE CAMERA THEN CONNECT IT TO A DVD RECORDER VIA THE AV PORT AND RECORD. SORRY COULD NOT FIND THAT CODE IN THE SERVICE MANUAL.
