Drivesavers saves many types of data from many types of media.
-> Remember that hard drives will fail. Just a matter of when (no one knows) so don't leave what you can't lose on one lone HD or location. Make copies.
Yesterday my Sony HDR-SR11 camcorder hard drive failed in the middle of my son's 1st birthday party. This is a problem on many different levels. 1st I can not access any old footage including yesterday's that was on the hard drive. Second I can not take any new videos with the camcorder. Every time I turn it on the camera a small hard drive icon on camcorder just spins. When the camcorder failed it said data recovery or something like that then just shut down.
So I basically need to know if there is a cost effective way to somehow get the footage off the camera. Second, can the camera be salvaged. Third, if not what is the latest and greatest out there now. I really liked the Sony camera is there but would be willing to look at other manufactures if they came highly recommended.
Any help, comments or suggestions would be really appreciated.
