Im new here. Did a Google search and this site came up. Hello all.
Ive had the DMR-HS2PP since they first came out and that thing wasnt cheap. I had it in my bedroom and decided to put up a 46" TV wall mounted and realized my equipment had to go in the closet. I set my components on the shelf and walked away to get a power strip and heard a crash. My beloved Panasonic hit the floor. It landed on the front corner and messed up the connectors between the main board and front face and also totaled the DVD drive somehow. All I get is "RECOVER" and a few seconds later it shuts down.
I have a few very important but private videos on the hard drive so sending it in for service isnt an option. I have connected the hard drive to a PC and it spins up and the PC sees it in device manager but windows doesnt recognize it.
Can anyone tell me how to access and hopefully convert the files??
