Question about Hitachi DZ-MV730A DVD Camcorder
I'm trying to record from the Camcorder to my Magnavox DVD Recorder. The first 30 minutes go fine, but then mid-playback on the camcorder, it stops playing and freezes up. I can do nothing at this point. It won't even turn off. The only fix is to remove the battery and then start again. However, after starting again, the same thing happens. So far on this mini DVD I have 54 thumbnails. I can scroll down almost to the end, but if I try to scroll down after thumbnail 45 or so, it freezes up again. It doesn't seem to have anything to do with the DVD recorder, because this problem happens independantly of it. I've had this problem before with different mini-DVD's. I even have one mini-DVD where it had run out of space, and while creating the thumbnails for finalization, it froze up, and now I can't get the mini-DVD to work anymore. I'm very upset about this, b/c this was during the first year of my daughter's life - if I lose that footage - there's no way to recapture it. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
I had the same problem - you are (as I was) turning off the camera too soon after you hit the stop button after recording a scene. Wait until the word "disc access" appears (about 5 seconds after you hit the stop button. This "marks" the end of the scene. I just don't know how to edit that scene out or if it will delete it out. I know after finalizing the disc that scene will pause for a while (10 to 20 seconds even) when you watch it through the DVD player to the TV.
