Re: I can not turn the day/date feature OFF on my Hitachi...

The instructions says there is a rechargable battery in the camera that maintains the date. It suggests that if the battery is exhausted the date and time will be reset (no definition of reset). It further says to connect the AC adapter/charger at least once every three months for 24 hours. You might try not using the adapter for three months and seeing if reset means no date/time at all or just 00/00/00. Steve

I just bought the Hitachi DZ-MV550A NTSC camcorder and I cant get it to play on dvd player on the TV Can you please help me Thank you

you need to finalize the disc. With the recorded disc in, hit the "disc navigation" button and you will see a place to hit "finalize". Move cursor to "finalize" and then click "yes". You can only finalize a disc using the AC power source, it will not do it from your battery. You should then be able to play it on your dvd player.

How to finalize a disc on a hitachi dz mv550

After you have recorded all the information that you would like on your disc, the process is simple, just go to the menu and pic the finalize option under the disc utilities feature. I have found that some ram disc's that come with these camcorders will not finalize so if you are using a ram disc and when you do go to the finalize feature you will see that the feature is grayed out and you cant select it. That is a good indication that the disc cannot be finalized. I hope this helps
