The answer depends on a lot of things. If you plug your cam in and it doesn't make that happy plug and play sound, then it could possibly be your usb port. If your PC recognizes that a USB periphial has been connected but does not install the drivers correctly, then you should make sure that you have the right cam drivers for your operating system. If that has went correctly then there's one more test to see if your pc has recognized the camera. Go to my computer look at all of the drive letters for one that is not there whenever the camera is unpluggedc. If a drive shows up when the cam is plugged in, then it recognized your cam, especially if you can navigate to folders within that are labeled DCIM or RTAV.

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.

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.
