A failing hard drive, I bet. I recently had to replace the drive in a HDR112 because the C&DE kept getting stuck and taking forever. Sure enough, it was a faulty drive.JimSpence said:24 hours for that option is too long. And pulling the plug probably won't help as it will just start up that option again.
What kind of errors were you having?
However, pulling the plug may not be a bad first step either way. You of all people..., Dr. Restart...
