Hi, I'm Pete. Welcome to JustAnswer! I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply ASAP.

This problem can occur if the hard drive inside the recorder has become corrupted.

To fix this, you will need to re-format the hard drive by performing a factory reset using the menu option.

This will erase any recordings that already exist on the box but it should resolve the issue for you.

Reply back and let me know if it works?
