Yes you are so right, that type of camera the digital 8 (I have the 340) of your model and none of these new platic cameras today will beat it on build or picture. But the problem with downloading to your hard-drive on the PC is that it will need to be pluged into your PC for it to work, so where would you plug it in camera? but honest if you buy the right type of DVD disks say the Verbatim type pack of 10 around £14 and you use the Firewire cable (NOT USB) to download your movies then you will have no problems. Some DVD recorders on the PC do not like the -r so do get + R types, I always get great results. Take care, let me know okay? if I can help I will.. Cheers, David
There are three things you can do that will eventually give you a working solution. Depending on the level of problem. Start with 1 progress to 3 until it works. 1. Use a cleaning disc. (one that use an alcohol based liquid)
2. If the cleaning disc does not solve it, you can use an ear bud, with some iso-propyl alcohol to clean the DVD lens on the drive directly. (you have to open the player and the drive)
3. The guaranteed working solution is to replace the DVD drive inside the player. This is quite a simple process, as most players use a standard IDE DVD-ROM or DVD writer.
You simply remove the face plate, (apply power to the drive, and press eject first) the tray will open. Unclip the tray face, and then with the tray open you can unclip the plastic face plate too.
Remove the old drive, and fit the new drive by reversing the removal procedure.
Once everything is assembled you should be able to watch DVD's again. If you can't find a cheap DVD drive locally, try ebay.
I have done this on over 50 players for my clients in the past. I use LG IDE DVD roms and IDE DVD writers for the DVD recorders, irrespective of brand.
Three suggestions: 1) take it apart and clean the laser and the spindle 'hub' that the DVD rests on OR 2) get a 'cleaner' disk that will 'whisk' any dust from the laser diode. OR as a final suggestion 3) replace the DVD recorder with another. Plain old EIDE parallel interface units fit fine. This is a very friendly machine in that it will accept PC compatible hard disks and DVDR drives. tom
Generally, this problem is caused by bad sectors or other problems on the hard drive and can be resolved by going into the setup menu and re-formatting the hard drive. Of course, all recordings on the hard drive will be erased, so spin them off to dvd first. Be sure to have unplugged and replugged the unit immediately prior to going into the setup menu (don't try to record anything). If this doesn't work, no-one will repair this unit locally, as it must be returned to Toshiba's(TACP) depot for repair. Best of luck.
