Question about Hitachi DZ-MV550 DVD Camcorder

1 Answer

Disc Error The problem that has been occuring on our Hitachi MV550 DVD camcorder on a regular basis is the disc error problem resulting in disc failure. In recording a graduation cerimony this error occur resulting in all video being lost. VERY FRUSTRATING and DISAPPOINTING. Again I used it at a friend's wedding - after 15 minutes of recording the disc error message came on and that was the end of that precious video. My question or plea - is there any way of retrieving the video on that disc once it has failed. Maybe a professional with professional equipment can retrieve it? I am desparate to get the video of the wedding off this stupid disc. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Thank you for your reply. I did exactly that - tried doing the restore option that the recorder gives which unfortunately did not work. Then I brought it to a data recovery place on Burrard in Vancouver ... very helpful and professional. They were only able to recover a very small amount of video - not worth recording unfortunately (no charge). If I had read the instructions thoroughly before using the recorder - like I did after this problem occurred, I would have had a better chance at saving more data. So, lesson learnt - life happens.

    I have the same problem. When trying to record precious moments of my two young boys, I keep getting the DISC ERROR message, Just like the other complaint, this is very FRUSTRATING and HEARTBREAKING when you purchase an expensive camcorder to record special moments you can't get back!!! Like my son's 2nd birthday party and my college graduation party, all I have now are pictures.

    Before I throw in the towel (and throw away $700) is there anything I can do to save my camcorder?? PLEASE HELP

If you don't mind paying out some money, data recovery experts can possibly retrieve the data. You may want to try doing it yourself though because at least you know you won't damage the actual disk. Who knows what will happen to it after it has left your possesion.

DVD Finalization


im guessing your talking about a new disc here , before you can do anything with the disc ,you will either have to format it or erase it, once you have donr that you can then use the disc and edit its contents. im assuming you are using the correct type of disc for your machine, eg dvd+rw or dvd-rw check the manual to make sure your machine can record onto a dvd+rw disc. hope this is of some help to you.

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

Are you using a RW disc. You can't finalize a RW disc. RW is that purpose is when you can record over and over. Try using a regular DVD to see that will finalize the disc.

Bought the cam used need to know how to load the dvd looks like it might be ,missing a cartridge or something


The DVD-RAM media for this camcorder is encased in a plastic cartridge. Several companies make the media for this corder, Maxell calls it DVD-RAM Camcorder (DVD RAM 4.7) 2.8GB. You must verify it shows compatibility with Hitachi Camcorders, as the Sony media does not use the cartridge but is the same ram disc, so you could easily buy the wrong type.
