Question about Hitachi DZ-MV730A DVD Camcorder
Can anyone help me why my dvd cam cant read disk.evena normal dvd r disk.i also tried my used dvd r & ram disk. but i cant read it.is there anything possible problem on my disk that i need to go for the repair?or maybe anyone can help me how to dell with this..i really need to used this on my coming events on our church.thanks a lot guys
I am overall satisfied with my cam. I must add that i have the Hitachi MV730E model, I think it is the same with Hitachi MV730A model (not sure why the E at the end of the description versus the A, might be a country specific thing since I bought it in Europe).
The reason I am writing this review is to help all those like me that have problems with corrupted disks. It does not happen often (5 times out of the approx 100 disks i have shot), yet, sometimes before or during finalisation i get the message "Cannot read disk. Check dirt/crack/both-sides contrary/inserted correctly." and the camcorder cannot read the disk. Since it is not finalised, i cannot use it in my DVD player. For some disks that include some precious, unique moments that was a major disappointtment.
Searching for a solution, I found a program at www.cdroller.com. I was not sure it would work, I was a bit suspicious, still, I gave it a shot, bought it for 39 Euros (approx 50 USD) and it worked. I have already recovered 3 out of 3 I have tried, if the disk is seriously corrupted it takes lots of time but, regardless of the fuss, i have my videos back.
With cdroller program, you should note that a)for me, the best option is "Split file" after "Recover everything" which creates mpeg files, and, b)when disk seriously corrupted, and program asks "Disc scan seems to require some time to complete. Display intermediate results right now?", i chose once yes and the quality of the recovered files was not good, therefore, next time i chose no and ticked "Don't show this message again" and then the quality of the recovered files was good.
Hope it helps.

I tested this camera for a client. I didn’t have the light running for more than 15 minutes. The battery lasted approximately 6 hours before recharging. The LCD, however, had a few dead pixels - never saw this before. Tried returning for exchange and had to put up quite a fight. Anyone else seen this? http://www.batteryfast.co.uk

I have had this problem and either the disc is not formated or your battery was to low(bad battery) and I have also had bad discs. Just like with blank cds. Hope this helps!
