I have the DZ-GX5020A DVD Cam....the disc eject door will not open.....I can hear it clicking trying to open, but no luck... everthing else works fine.......can you help me?


None of those options worked for me. I had to remove the single screw on top of the camera. Then slide the silver top panel forward to remove it. Then remove the dark panel where the screw was removed. Then you should see a small metal piece very close to the DVD door opening that is holding it closed. Slowly nudge it forward to unlatch the door. This allowed me to open the door to remove the DVD. Unfortunately I still have to do this every time to get the door open. I may try some lubricant on the metal to prevent sticking.

Disc eject on Hitachi DZ-GX5060E will not work


I've just received mine today from Argos Clearance Bargains (http://myworld.ebay.co.uk/argos-clearancebargains/) and had the same problem. I was already compoisng a strong complaint in my mind. Anyway I tried the reset method. Remove battery; open LCD screen;hold in reset buttona few seconds; reconnect battery; set to "off" and eject .... out popped a very dirty DVD-RW.

When I reinsterted it the problem recurred and I solved it the same way. I have now permenently removed the offending DVD and the cover opens and closes fine. I will buy some fresh DVDs this weekend and see if the problem returns.

Watch this space and also let me know how you get on,

Installation cd for my cam


Looks like Hitachi doesn't have any software available on line to do it. You will have to contact them to get one.

You can use abobe software for free to try to get them or goto Kodak.com and use their free software as well.

If it doesn't see your camera as a disk drive in my computer, you can get a card reader to retrieve the pictures that way.

Heres the owners manual if you need one:

Codecs anyone?


I have the same camera, and found out that the VRO file is just MPEG2. So copy the VRO file onto your computer from your disc. Once its on your harddrive, you can right click on it and go to properties. Re-name your file from VRO to MPG, making sure that you still have the original VRO file in case you need it for other programs. Once I change it to MPG file name, I can use media player to play it and I have a DVD movie maker where i can edit and record to DVD.

The door might be stuck. Try "helping" it open manually after pressing the eject button. Otherwise, something is probably broken and you might have to call a repairman.
