I have a camorder sony xr155. After a power cut due to a flat battery,it is showing now the error format of the hard drive and I can not access the HDD anymore. I managed to take out the ZIF Toshiba HDD and bought an adaptor ZIF-USB. I can see the HDD as a mass storage but the disk is not assigned. I have to initialize it , it means format it right ? I don't want to do that because I really want to retrieve some data on the disk. Did anyone face this problem before and solve it ? Please, share. Thank you.
