Re: i need help

I know I may be a couple weeks late however, I will still try to help. If you don't know at all how to do it then I would suggest reading the manual or PDF that came with the camera. The DVDCAM has a built in function that allows you to finalize a disk right in the menu options. If you knew that, and are pretty sure you are following directions, then I would suggest trying a different type of disk.( brand of disk) I've also heard of people having finalizing trouble with this camera due to a harware fault in the camera. That means you will have to get it replaced, hopefully under warrenty. Hope this gets you stated.

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.

My Hitachi DVD-Ram R DZ-MV380A NTSC does not show the finalize option when I go there I am trying to finalize a DVD - R Sony. I know I have finalized these type of discs before on this camera.

Several issues come to mind. The problem may exist because it needs a firmware update, the dvd drive is becoming defective or the disc is defective. I hope this helps.

I have a Hitachi mega pixel dz-mv780e dvd cam and when i put a completed disc into my laptop it wont play, can you please advise what i need to do Thank you

If the camcorder does finalize the disc? What type of disc is it? Some of the disc that work in that camcorder like a ram disc will not work in a regualr dvd player, only use -r disc's if you want to make a disc to use elsewhere. The other option is that the dvd camcorder needs the dvd drive replaced if it is still available. I hope this helps, let me know if you have any other questions. There is also a firmware update available for that camcorder.

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.

DVD dies if I try to record to the end

I'm not sure if this relates or not. I have a Sony DVR-10 stand alone DVD recorder and if I'm using DVD+R I have to leave some time for the DVD to be finalize. If I record all the way to end I just made coaster. Now if I use a DVD+RW I don't have to finalize, I can play it in a PC but not a DVD player. So to be safe I now record on DVD+RW and then just copy it to DVD+R or -R on the PC.
