Question about Hitachi Digital Cameras

2 Answers

I have a DVD camera model #DZ-MV380A. I've bought a new computer with Vista and find that the software for my camera cannot be loaded on the computer. Does this mean that my DVD camera is now obsolete and is no longer of value or is there a solution that will allow me to get my video off the camera and into my computer.

Hi, Normally camcorders have firewire connection to download to computer but I guess this model doesnt have that.
But you should be able to directly take out the DVD from cam and use it with the computer ... 
If you are looking for software to convert to some particular format, the software which came with cam is incompatible with Vista as per Hitachi.
You should look for some DVD ripper software for that purpose ...

TRY THIS SOLUTION. TURN YOUR COMPUTER OFF AND CONNECT YOUR CAMERA. NEXT TURN YOUR COMPUTER ON AND WAIT TO SEE IF WIN VISTA WILL " FIND " YOUR CAMERA. IF THIS DOESN'T WORK GO TO THE HITACHI WEBSITE AND SEE IF THEY DON'T HAVE A NEWER VERSION UPDATE TO COVER VISTA. IF THEY DO, JUST DOWNLOAD IT AND YOU SHOULD ALSO BE BACK IN BUSINESS. IT IS DOUBTFUL THAT YOUR CAMERA CAN'T BE USED. TRY THESE AND THEN REPLY TO: ARCLIGHT1217

When I bought camera I had Windows XP. New computer has Vista.


So you now have Vista, but the software will not load...

If you have Windows Vista (32-bit), click this link and download the "HP photosmart software and drivers" package. Install by directions.
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareList?os=2093&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=1154651&lang=en

If you have Vista 64-bit, use this link. Download the "HP photosmart software and drivers" package. Install by directions.

I hope this helps you, don't forget the "FixYa" rating if this solves your questions!

There is no driver available for Vista for this camera

Here is link to all the software for the camera

If you are taking pictures off of a memory card, you can use a card reader and work with the pictures that way.

New laptop with windows vista installed. Model compatable with windows 2000/XP. Can this be resolved and allow me to transfer files from my camera to my laptop. Make Technika Model SH-A366


My fuji S700 said to NOT format the memory card and it worked either through the cable download, or by loading the card into the cardreader in the computer. It worked flawlessly under XP, but upon switching to Vista (also on a Gateway), the card must be formatted (before taking pictures) instead of like before. I think it is a Vista thing.
Now I just plug it (the camera) into a DVD burner and burn to disk, and then load the images to the computer, and have a hard copy before Vista has the chance to screw it up and loose anything.
