My original problem was with the HDD that I was not able to access and had many saved videos that I very much wanted to keep. I brought it to a video repair shop and was told the video on the HDD could not be saved and a new HDD would cost more than a new 55S. I decided to bring the unit home and at least be able to watch DVD’s since I could before I brought it to the shop. When I hooked it up and turned it on I was now not able to access the DVD section. The front panel is lit and I get the constant message UNFORMAT.
My questions are: 1) has anyone been able to save video from this HDD and, if so, how and 2) what does this message mean and why can’t I at least play my DVD’s? Thanks for your help.
