Having problems with your Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W100 Digital Camera ?

Sony dcr-sr47 handycam - hdd format error.

\015 I taped my sons play yesterday on the internal memory of my video camera. Then I tried transfering it to a dvd on my computer. It did not work and now my camera says hdd format error everytime i turn it on and i cannot tape or see the video I took yesterday. I tried resetting and taking out battery. Please help me. Also, if it accidentaly got deleted is there any way to recover the internal memory???? I really hope so.\015\012Thank you.\015

Answers :

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.
