Question about Hitachi 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

I lost the cd of my hitachi dz-mv380a ntsc and need to install it at my lap top.please help me to get its software including its driver.thanks.


The company upgrades original software for new computer operating systems, but does not provide downloads of their software. My solution was to purchase a second camcorder for parts that included the original software. I may have to purchase a third camera because of a malfunctioning disc assembly on both my camcorders.

My Hitachi DVD-Ram R DZ-MV380A NTSC does not show the finalize option when I go there I am trying to finalize a DVD - R Sony. I know I have finalized these type of discs before on this camera.


Several issues come to mind. The problem may exist because it needs a firmware update, the dvd drive is becoming defective or the disc is defective. I hope this helps.

If you camera software disc is broken you can download it from the camera's manufactor website.

windows.

Disk error 0280


Error 0280 on Hitachi mv350a DVD camera : It looks the dvd had bad spots that could not be read. After getting frustrated trying to get any info from Hitachi manuals and support, I just decided to try to extract the data directly from the dvd(fujitsu dvd-r disk). Since my DVD was not finalized I could not copy the files directly using Windows Explorer, so I tested several applications and here it's what worked for me: I downloaded isobuster (www.isobuster.com), and I was able to view the tracks on the dvd, then I used the "Extract" option to create an image directly from the faulty dvd and it created a couple of files with the extension .ibq. I checked these ibq files and two of them were huge, so I assumed those were my video data. I renamed these files from *.ibq to *.vob(isobuster has options to extract these "image files", but you need to register it first...), anyways I tried to open these new vob files with PowerDVD and they PLAYED JUST FINE :)! Finally I just used a DVD editor to load the new .vob files and I burnt a new DVD. I hope it will save you guys some time... Mihai from Romania :)
