    Is it common for a HDD recorder to crash?
    It is hapenning to me when I am editing something (divide, delete).
    Is it something to do with disk fragmentation?
    Thanx

    ...and does formatting the HDD help? Remember you can high speed dub programmes to DVD-RAM/DVD-RW (depending on machine) to empty your HDD for formatting.

    I've got the Panny E85, use the HDD every day since buying back in May and have never had the hard disc crash.

    Only media problem I've ever had was a pack of Memorex DVD-Rs I bought in the States - didn't like them one bit. I've burned over 50 Imation discs and not a single coaster.

    My HDD never crashed but totally died on me after 3 months use in E85. It was VERY intensively used for that 3 months, but no excuse for dying. NEVER ONCE had a crash other than that fatal one.

    I have JVC MD4, S-VHS and HDD combo.
    I edit a lot on it, I mean a lot.
    And it crash once in a week.
    I have it for a two months and I can;'t format the HDD because I still need info in DV mode.
