Ok, try this, works for me: - Remove the batteries- Insert its again- Connect the recorder via usb to pc- Copy one by one each archive you need to recover, after copy delete them from the recorder- Copy SYSTEM, RECORDER AND MANUALS FOLDER to pc- Format from the pc the recorder (i use a mac - disk utility) yes it is, ERASE!- Copy again the folders: SYSTEM-RECORDER-MANUALS- Unplug the recorder, remove the batteries, insert again- Turn on the recorder, it will display a different error, format the recoder, it will restore and reset the systems files.- It works for me!-
What do u mean by formatting?U can't formatted the DVD+RW disc to blank again,after the disc been recorded and used.DVD+RW recodering mean something are recorded u can recorded some elese in it replaced what was there,that all u can do to it.U can't wipe out what in the disc data was there.
Did you say you used a DVD-RW disc to transfer a videotape onto? The reason your PC won't recognise that disc is because the data format on it is a different language to what PCs understand - plus an unfinalised DVD-RW won't play in other DVD players - it is usually an incompatible format.
(DVD+RW discs with titles/top menus created in video mode CAN be played on a PC DVD drive or a normal DVD player as can finalised DVD-R discs (DVD-R discs MUST be recorded and finalised in the same recorder for compatible playback). DVD-RW discs can only be viewed on the unit they were written/recorded on.
The other reason for the 'remaining space' on the disc you describe showing less than 120 minutes is due to a title recently being recorded or erased - unless you format it - the 120 minute / 4.7GB DVD-RW will not show full available space. Erasing titles on re-writable DVDs does not increase space. The same rule applies to unfinalised +R / -R discs (you cannot re-format these to get the space back once recorded - they are 'once only' writables)
I recommend you invest in some DVD-R discs and re-copy your VHS tape to that - then if you are satisfied with the result, title etc., finalise the DVD-R - it will play on any DVD player or PC with DVD support (or it should). These discs are relatively inexpensive to buy just about anywhere.
Final note: do NOT finalise the DVD-RW you recorded (I hope you haven't already done this) - simply format/erase it - re-use it for something else or keep it until you need it.
You can use any brand of DVD, just take note of the format before recording/playing.
If you are using a DVD-RW or DVD+RW, you can format the disc by performing "Format". You can format DVD-RW for either video mode recording or VR mode recording. DVD+RW can be format in order to erase all content of the disc.
You may not be able to reformat a disc that is not previously formatted by your recorder an example would be a. DVD disc formatted by PC or another recorder.
Follow these steps to re-write:
Insert a recordable disc.
1 Press [SETUP].
2 Select "DVD Menu",
then press [ENTER].
3 Then select "Format", and
4 select "Start", then
5 Confirm by selecting "Yes", then press
Formatting will start.
6 Formatting is completed.
When the disc is ready for you to rewrite to "100%" is indicated.
If a FORMAT ERROR message is displayed,
then the inserted disc is not formatted or it is recorded in a
different format not useable by the camcorder. If using a DVD-RW or
DVD+RW, format the disc prior to use. Otherwise, use a different disc.
Maybe the format of your recorded movie didnt support your player..check out your manual for the supported formats and check the format of your recorded movie.If any of the format in the manual matches your movie format then it will definitely play..
please rate my suggestion..
the best format to buy is the DVD-R but make sure your disc has been finalised if you reinsert your disc on the functions screen you should see finalise this is essential for compatible playback hope this helps regards Jim
