How do I format a disc that has not been formatted.

With CDRW discs you just need to erase it before you use it again. I use a program called NERO to erase it. Once erased the formatting is done automatically when you're ready to put something on the disc. However, when the writing is completed, you'll have to erase it again to write new data to it.

How to delete on RCA VR5220A

Erasing Files and Bookmarks:
To erase files or bookmarks, while playback is stopped:
1. Press x once.
2. Press '<< / >>' to select one of the erasing options:

  • Delete the current file (DEL 01)
  • Delete all files in the current folder (DEL AL)
  • Format the memory of the player (FORMAT) (Caution! All data inside the memory will be erased)
  • Delete all bookmarks in the current file (DEL BK)
3. With one of the above options selected, press and hold x for about 3 seconds to confirm your selection and start the deletion.
  • File numbers that come after erased one will be moved forward by one automatically.
  • Press to cancel erasing all files. The undeleted files are saved automatically.
  • Formatting the internal memory may be required when encountering compatibility problem, etc.
  • You may also format the player when connected to a PC (by right-clicking on the player's drive name or letter and select "Format" from the menu). Make sure you select FAT or FAT32 as the file system.

How can I format? I lost the intenal files

Hello Press the FOLDER button to choose a folder
Press and hold ERASE button for 3 seconds or longer.
The ERASE indicator will flashes
Press the ERASE button again.
Done blinks for two seconds and the deletion will be complete
Note AN erased file cannot be restored.
During this process don’t remove batteries. Otherwise data may be damage.
The recorder should be formatted using only by using the internal FORMAT function found in the recorder's Menu. Formatting using the computer may corrupt system files needed to run the recorder, so computer formatting is not recommended

The camera erased all my pictures and it will not format the disk

Have you tried to put the card in a card reader and connect it to your computer? Card readers can be purchased at just about any store that sells electronics or camera supplies. They cost around $20 or less. You put the card in the card reader, attach it to your computer and click on start and then my computer.You should be able to see something that says digital media or mass storage. Highlight that and that right click. It should give you the option of formatting the card. It will erase everything and format it for you. Then you can try it in the camera. If this doesn't work then it should be looked at. Good luck

Drop hardisc will it spoilt?

Dropping hard drives is never recommended, though most hard drives are designed to withstand a hefty impact of up to about 200G, which is equivalent to a drop from about 1inch onto a hard surface.  If it is an empty drive, I would personally recommend replacing the drive with a new one.  If it is an old drive, you should be able to start up the drive and retrieve some of your data, but again I would recommend replacing it ASAP.
