    wont that delete all the media I am trying to retive?

    Yes it will.. If you hook your camera up to the computer and no files show up then your "work" is toast anyways..
    I had the HDD format error, but when I did the USB CONNECT my files were all there, except for when the error happened, that's when the camera shut off..

    Try to get your files, if you can't just do a format and consider it a loss..
    The solution above will reformat the drive and make it useful once again, instead of a camera stuck on HDD format error...

Sony dcr-sr47 handycam - hdd format error.

Does this camera also take a memory card? If it does, then that would mean the internal memory would be very small...much too small for a long video. If it doesn't, then it's possible you should have formatted the internal memory before an important event.
