Copying to HDD of DVD Recorder

I have a Pioneer 520H-s DVD Recorder and am trying to copy mini discs recorded on my camcorder to the hdd so I can copy them on to a large dvd. Some will copy and others I get the following message: Can’t copy, no more space for file management data. There is still plenty of space on the hdd. Any help greatfully appreciated.

Welcome to CD Freaks.

I’ve got the 440 and at the back of the manual it shows this error message with the following explanation and I’d guess yours is much the same:-

The disc control data limit has been reached [I](whatever that means)[/I] or the maximum number of chapters and/or titles has been reached. Erase titles/chapters or combine chapters.

I think you might need to delete a few titles and/or optimise the HDD.

If I am reading your question correctly, you have Pioneer Stand Alone DVD Recorder that I have the same brand with model DVR R500. I assume both have the same format requirement the question is do you use DVD-R? since these recorders from Pioneer are only writing on DVD-R/-RW not + ones.


The poster clearly states the problem is copying to the HDD.
