Question about Cameras

1 Answer

Dear Sir, PLEASE HELP!!!!! I was given a DvDCam DZ-MV55OE PAL which is apparently only just over 4 years old. I was only given the instruction book & thought that was it....BUT now after going to Africa on holiday & recording several DVD-Ram & DVD-R discs, I read the instructions that imply I should have received a CD Rom & a software called Photo Album.....which I did not receive! As I wish to learn to edit these discs thereby making a dvd movie for memories to keep. I have an Apple Mac & thought that if I just attached the USB lead into camera & then straight into the Mac, I would be able to edit this on iMovie which is on the Mac. I tried & absolutely nothing happened. iMovie just said the disc was blank!!!!!! even thought it sounded as if the camera was in action. I am fairly old & by no means a genius on the computer but love learning. Can you PLEASE tell me what to do. Do I need this CD Rom & photo album software? or am I able to directly put the movie into iMovie & then edit it? I SOOOOOO badly want to make this movie. PLEASE help me. Many thanks Sincerely Jan

    I am VERY disappointed that I was charged almost $12 without having any result after the advice. Firstly I can't put dvd into the Apple Mac computer....it doesn't take small discs!!!! I have finalized the discs & still NOTHING happens when I open imovie after connecting the USB. I am SO desperate....is there something else I should do PLEASE? Sincerely Jan

Hi,
All is required to Finalize recorded DVD Disc in camcorder, put that disc in computer and transfer movie files for further editing.
Without finalizing dvd disc in camcorder, no other dvd player/ rom can read it except camcorder itself because its still raw data and other dvd players/ rom will tell you disc in blank.
Finalize option would be available in camcorder menu. Finalize disc once disc is full or you decide to finish the recording on it. Now it can be playback in any other dvd player or dvd-rom of computer.
Hope this info will solve your problem.
Thanks.

    Put finalized dvd disc in Computer and copy video files from disc then copy these video files to Mac because most camcorders support Windows and many camcorders do not support Mac system.

Hi ron,
The first thing you should have done was to search online for "driver for hitachi dz-gx20a". Doing so would have got you a hit on a Hitachi library.

Installation cd for my cam


Looks like Hitachi doesn't have any software available on line to do it. You will have to contact them to get one.

You can use abobe software for free to try to get them or goto Kodak.com and use their free software as well.

If it doesn't see your camera as a disk drive in my computer, you can get a card reader to retrieve the pictures that way.

Heres the owners manual if you need one:
