Question about Hitachi DZ-MV350A DVD Camcorder
Does anyone know what the trouble code 2881 is in the manual for this camera? I have misplaced my manual. Thank you for your help.
Solution #6 is the correct one. Many of the Hitachi camcorders don't read DVD-RW. Thanks whoever you are

Well Im going through the same thing and no one can seem to figure out what is going on. Ive tried all sorts of disc including a DVD-RAM Video 60 and Im still getting the same Error #2881 Code.

I have Hitachi DZ-MZ350A DVD CAM and I tried to put a maxell DVD-RW and it didnt work I got the same error so I figure it does not do RW so I got Panasonic DVD-R and so far so good.

I am using a Panasonic VDR-M30B and have exactly the same error code when I try to use a DVD-R disc. It says: "Error has occurred. Error code No. 2881. Please read the manual." There is nothing in the manual about error codes. It looks like that both Hitachi and Panasonics are using the same software/firmware but that fact does not solve our problems. DVD-RAM works fine for recording but does not allow reading on computer or TV. I plan to see Panasonic Service in Oslo next week.

The disk is in backwards, Side "A" has to be at the bottom when you insert it to the cam. the part of the disk where the information is written on the cd is towards the screen or left.

Service told me to take it to the store I bought it at (circuit city) and they could then refer me to a service center for repair to this piece of junk. Can ANY company make something that lasts more than a month or two? I probably take care of my stuff better than anyone I know and the junk ALWAYS fails. Expensive and made poorly in some foreign country no doubt.

I used exactly the same discs from day one. It worked fine until one day and all of a sudden error no.2881. Discs are DVD-R. I'm calling right now.

I had a similiar problem and was unable to locate my owner's manual. I called the Hitachi service number at 1-800-448-2244 and they said it was a disk read error. This model can not read DVD-RW. It can only read DVR-R or DVR-Ram.
