Big problem with my (the wife's) Panasonic PWT500 DVD Recorder.
Turned on the unit today to find a 'please wait' window. That didn't disappear, so I turned the unit off, then on again.
When we turned it on, it appears to have completed a firmware update (i think this because many of the screens (tv guide etc...) are different and have been updated). But the real problem is this:
The DVD no longer appears to 'see' the hard drive. It says 'recording time remaining 0.00) and can't see the recorded programs of which there where loads.
The only other thing that was different that may have caused this is having my mobile phone charging from the USB port.
Naturally the wife is blaming me, and breaking my balls so ANY help at all is very much appreciated. How can I get the machine to 'see' the hard drive again.
Thanks in advance for your help
