Re: Hitachi BX37E error

You can try to clean the laser lens first with a q-tip and 99% alcohol. If that fails, you should take it in for repair because the laser lens mechanism may be out of line because of a bump. There may also be a dust build up inside that prevents the proper movement of the lens. This can be done at home too.

I have a Hitachi DZ-BX37E DVD camcorder. No software. I have lots of recordings and can't do anything about it because i can't download it to my computer to edit etc. So frustrated. Have contacted Hitachi...

Hitachi say there is no software supplied with this camera. You don't need a driver to get the videos onto your PC. They have advice on how to use third party software to capture and edit videos on

Screen reads cannot read disc check dirt/crack/both-sides contrary/inserted correctly

Ultimately it sounds like the dvd drive needs to be replaced. The laser is weak and cannot read the data that is being sent back to the processor, that is if the laser is firing at all. I hope this helps

Can I download videos from my DZ-BX37E dvd camcorder to a Mac??

You should indeed be able to do that, you need to maybe buy a Video Movie making package for the Mac from your local computer shop, I know that Videowave works quite well.

Cannot read recorded disks which were made in the camera. It says these is no disk in when switched on. Looks as if laser may not be working

it seems that there was a problem on the recorder lens, first try to use a optical disc cleaner. if this does not solve the issue you better send it for repair for check-up & testing.

Error for record

I got mine to go with a good lens cleaner, just like the one for your DVD, but for your camcorder.

Hitachi DVD mv730 cannot read disk

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!
