    Same problem. This one had a tape jammed in it. I managed to get it to cough up the tape, but now it sits there dimly flashing "LOADING" on the display and no other functions are active. I hear some noises from the HDD that reminds me of a PC I had that went stupid and wouldn't boot.

    I've had three of these units do the same thing, one came from the factory that way. JVC has sent me a new one every time.

    Ocurre lo mismo con mi unidad SR-DVM70. Cuando la compré se demoró 2 días "loading" pero al tercer dia estuvo bien. Ahora volvio a ocurrir lo mismo, pero ya va casi un mes y continua "Loading".
    La compré en USA, pero la tengo en Colombia. Escribí a JVC y me dijeron que no pueden hacer nada al respecto. Me ofrecieron el manual de servicio en FTP a través de Internet por "por solo US$30".

I don't tremember what the fix for this is, but I had it happen to mine. Luckily I had a budget to just take the machine in and have it fixed. It took them one day to fix it and it only cost me $70. if you can afford to just take it in, it would be worth it.

The hard disk hasn't been recognized in Windows because the JVC runs Linux so the drive was formatted in EXT3 which Windows can't read.
Simple fix to recover all your data: connect the disk back to the pc and boot from a Linux Live-CD like
In there all you have to do is to copy all the content of the disk to your local disk (PCLinuxOS can read and write securely on NTFS/Windows disks). Or you could just burn them to some dvd's.
For the rest: 1 - on the CS pins; 2 - no.

Hello, when dubbing from DV mini tape to HDD

well one solution may be the speed you are recording at. L.P. recording on a dvd often creates this problem. but usually it is when you copy dvd to dvd, not mini dvd to dvd
Never record more than 2 hrs on a disk
there are programs for a work around that reprocess the dvd vob file with adjustments for the sync.
could also be a hardware problem
is your mini dv long play source as well?

Driver in windows XP

Use this guide:

It's for a different model, but it works the same.

In a nutshell, when the "AV/C Tuner" driver request comes up, just cancel the install. Then, it will want an "AV/C Tape Recorder/Player" driver. It "should" install automatically and be instantly recognized. If not, follow the instructions in the guide.

There are also instructions in there for disabling the "Av/C Tuner" every time the deck gets connected. Hope this helps - worked for me! - cliffpro.com
