Ever since I installed Photoshop Premier Elements on my computer, the program that came with the DVD camcorder no longer functions for importing video from the camera to the computer. A strange screen appears when I click "Import". If I try importing using Photoshop, it does not recognize the kind of file that the Hitachi DVD camcorder records.

Re: Importing to PC
It clearly seems that these two programs you are talking about are conflicting with each other. There are two scenarios on which we can work.
At this point of time what i would suggest you is to uninstall the program which came with the DVD Camcoder and Reinstall it again.
If it still does not work than you need to uninstall the Photoshop premier Elements and than check whether the Hitachi DVD software is working or not.
If it is working than you may have to compromise using the Photoshop premier Elements.
Note :- To uninstall a program you need to go to the "Control Panel" and you need to open "Add and Remove Program". Here you will see the list of programs installed on your computer, You may highlight the one you want to uninstall and click on "change/remove".
To install the Hitachi Software you can use the disk you have got with the DVD Camcoder.
Caution : Before you uninstall the Hitachi software make sure that you have the Hitachi software disk with you to reinstall it.
Hope you would find this as a good solution. Will wait for your raitings to find out whether it was of some help or not.

If the Computer is having Windows Vista installed on it then it's required to use a compatible i.LINK or Firewire cable to connect the Camcorder to the Computer. Once the connection is established, you can use Windows Movie Maker to transfer videos from the Camcorder to the computer. Make sure that the Camcorder is set to the "VCR/VTR" or "Play/Edit" mode and the tape is playing in the camcorder before importing the videos to the Computer.
If you're having Windows XP on the Computer and using USB cable to connect the Camcorder to the Computer then it's required to install the USB streaming driver and the USB driver for connection on the Computer before you can establish a successful connection between the Computer and the camcorder for transferring videos.
You can install the USB streaming driver using the supplied Software installation disc.
You should have been supplied, or you should obtain, a mini-usb to usb cable to connect your handycam to your computer.
If you have a computer that burns cds, and all of the above, including software that imports photos, which is normally supplied with computer operating systems (iPhoto for the Mac, and a program for the pc that slips my mind, but will perform the importing, sorting and burning function) get back to me so I can give you specific instructions. Please specify the availability of the cable I mentioned, and your computer platform (mac or pc) and your operating system.,
You can go to the cybelink website and download a trial copy of the software that came with the camcorder. The software is ; Cyberlink Power Cinema, Power Directer, and Power Producer. The camcorder's format is also recognizable by Mac. Or if you dont want ot eventually buy the new software you can manually change the file extension of you movies off the camcorder to .mpg to view back your video using windows media player. Until you get editing software, you would not be able to edit your movies. Adobe Premier Elements 4 works fine with .mov files and Final cut pro.
I would look for a more recent driver on the Samsung support website specifically for Vista; it apparently does not have the right (or any) driver to permit it to work with your DVD camcorder.
I don't think any of your hardware, computer or camcorder is dysfunctional, Windows just has to know how to communicate with it.
What you might try first is to have the camcorder connected (USB I assume) and reboot your PC.
If Win can see it at all, you should get a screen message that it has found new hardware.
If it has some basic driver on hand, the message might state 'installing software for your device.'
I used Pinnacle 10 and didn't have a problem. In Pinnacle you can import a DVD. You should be using a computer with at least 2 gig of memory, 128 meg for video, and two hard drives would be a good thing. Your processor should be at least 2 ghz. They may suggest lower speeds for the processor and these I gave you but you can run into problems.
Make sure that all of the software in your computer isn't running but the video editing program. Shut off all programs running in the background. If you can get two hard drives, make sure that your video that you are working on is on one drive and that the c drive is handling all of the temporary files. I know Pinnacle in particular builds a lot of temporary files up to 15 gig in some projects I have worked on. If your video is on the same drive as the temp files. Your going to have problems.
Also make sure that your hard drives are defragged. That will keep your files from being seperated onto muti parts of your drive. By defragging it, you will have one continuous file.
Make sure your videos are no more than 2 hrs long. Anything longer than can cause quality issues.
If there on DVD you don't need to capture them and that will save you some time by importing them. Make sure you have drivers to read them for your computer if there nor reading mini DVD format.
