Hello Ramesh,

 

The HDD FORMAT ERROR may occur if data becomes corrupt on the camcorder’s hard disk drive. To resolve this issue, it will be necessary to format the hard disk drive and reset the camera to factory specifications.

 

To perform the [MEDIA FORMAT] of the hard disk drive,

touch (MENU) → [Show others] → [MEDIA FORMAT] (under [MANAGE MEDIA] category) → the desired medium (hard disk) → [YES] → [YES] → [OK]

 

To reset the Camcorder to the factory, press the RESET button located near the LCD screen. This will reset all settings, including the clock setting.

Performing the recommendations above should resolve the issue. If you have completed all of the steps and the issue is still not resolved, service may be required. You can initiate service request using the link provided below.

you can also use a data recovery software to help you.the disk you are trying to access either hasn't been prepared for use with your OS, or it has been damaged and the data can no longer be read. Every floppy and hard disk needs to be formatted to prepare the media for use with a particular file system. 

want to solve the hdd format error , use a third party software or ask for a engineer's help.
