Question about Cameras

1 Answer

I have a Hitachi DZ-GX5020A DVD camcorder and I can't get the videos to play on my PC. The Computer won't read the little discs so there is no way I can even burn it onto a big disk. There is no cables to hook it up to the computer. Everyone keeps telling us that the computer should read the little discs fine and I can't get any video to come up! it's frustrating

You have to finalise the disks before playing them on and external player
see page 25:

If you do not do this the discs cannot be played on an external player.

How do i play my dvd on a vista platform


I have the gx5020a camera, and found out that the VRO file is just MPEG2. So copy the VRO file onto your computer from your disc. Once its on your harddrive, you can right click on it and go to properties. Re-name your file from VRO to MPG, making sure that you still have the original VRO file in case you need it for other programs. Once I change it to MPG file name, I can use media player to play it and I have a DVD movie maker where i can edit and record to DVD.

Can I playback my movies on a DVD-ROM drive?


No, DVD-RAM disc recorded on the DVD Camcorder will not play back on every drive. Some of the new DVD-ROM drives designed to be compliant with the new DVD-RAM book2 standards will playback discs recorded on the DVD Camcorder. Many previous DVD-ROM drives on the market that came out before the DVD-RAM standard was released will not play back discs recorded on the DVD Camcorder. HITACHI manufactures DVD-ROM drives for some PC manufactures as OEM products. HITACHI model GD-7500 DVD-ROM has DVD-RAM read/write compatibility.
