Please do not get me going on this massive DVD disk failing again my friend, not many cameras with DVD ever did work, the fail rates are over 70% when you decide to shoot films on DVD's you need 8mm Video film tapes to be sure you record when you make films.

My hitachi bx45a said found error in image file. rapair data now if i say no it lets me do nothing and if i say yes it says use ac adapter/charger turn power off. i don't even think i have one of those...

Yesterday I filmed with Hitachi camcorder is DZ-GX5020A in back yard, I am actor and press the record is half hours. Camcorder causes "Repair Data" x Found error in image file. Repair data now?" I press the "Yes" is for 6 second is pop screen said " ! Use AC Adapter/Charger. Turn off power". I unplugged the recharge battery and use Ac Adapter with plug in the camcorder is turn on(I click turn on behind of camcorder on film logo) on "DISC ACCESS" then pop screen said "Repair Data" x Found error in image file. Repair data now?" I re-click on "Yes"(like before use battery pack recently) is 19 second on "Repairing" on pop screen repeat again on it's said "X Error occurred. Please Replace disc." I press square make stop. Then check said "DISC ACCESS" Then I press record because it's said "CHECK DISC" doesn't working. I believe the Hitachi camcorder cause damage on disc is erase, malfunction problem cause damage or security something. When I filmed my niece Anna Maria's B-day, Disneyland, etc. are last week agothen I am actor are filmed inside of the mini disc is very important, I tried on Finalize doesn't working cause said "Finalize Disc...! Write protected. Check disc" cause block by Repair Data's security on disc. I disabled security of Repair Data. Unknown. I am very very very angry, depression, disappointment. I am just angry at Hitechtronic, Inc. should responsible, tester, design who make camcorder should be better quality. Can you repair my mini Disc "Memorex "should disabled security of Repair Data? Something please help me for switch your camcorder is different brand out my mini disc on finalize and back to me?. Can you ask tech should fix my mini disc on finalize uses on the other camcorder (borrow is temporary) make finalize? Then back my mini disc (very important) on tech had other Hitachi camcorder is DZ-GX5020A should finalize is very simple. I am very confuse or what.??

Can't format disc

I guess the DVD player that you are using is incompatible of playing DVD -R
Please check if it can.

DVD-RWs can be initialised in either VIDEO mode or in VR mode. In your case you have initialised the disc in VR mode - hence the .VRO file extension.

VR mode allows you to edit the disc on the camcorder and is a newer format than VIDEO mode, which is the format used in most films, and which most DVD players 'understand'. VIDEO format cannot be edited on the camcorder, and can be edited on a PC. A VIDEO mode disc has to be finalised before you can use it on a PC.

Use VIDEO mode if you want to upload your video to a PC.

I don't know how to delete a video clip when my disc has already been finalized. There isn't any 'delete' button that i can find. Please help me!!

If the disk is finalized you cannot delete any clips - hence the term "FINALize"

If it is a DVD-R, try unfinalizing and then deleting the clip.

i had the same problem. you may have plugged your power supply into the a/v slot near the function button..that is what i did. there is another place near the lens to plug it in. try that and then finalize should be an option.

check for smudges on the disc or on the laser optic sensor. cleaning liquids and cleaning Disc kits may be found in Camera and PC stores. if you need extensive services we can provide the service manualat a reasonable cost.
