Not sure how old this camera is, but it's having some serious issues. If it's a couple years old, the battery could be dying, and might need replacement. I assume the data issue is with the hard drive, and that's not good. It's not reading the video information and trying to repair it, but it could be a hardware fault, which will require servicing.
Not sure if this will help, but here is what someone had to do (from in this situation:
There are a variety of other functions and features included, but none of them are particularly intuitive. For example, I had several minutes of test footage on the camcorder's hard drive. I then copied this video to a DVD in the camcorder's DVD drive. Next, I removed the miniDVD and tried to play it on a laptop computer. My video file, however, was nowhere to be found. After a little detective work, I realized that I had needed to finalize the miniDVD disc after I transferred, or "dubbed," the files from my hard drive. Then, when I popped the disc out, it played just fine on my computer. My gripe is that I wasn't aware of this problem at first, because it wasn't mentioned in the product's menu system. It took about 7 minutes to copy footage to the miniDVD disc, and then about 6 minutes to finalize it.

Contact Hitachi support if your warranty is still in effect, and here's their site:
Good luck, and hope this helps.

I have a gateway nv79u and it wont stay on for more than 30 mins. It keeps shutting off with error code 41 kernal-power.

Hi Michael,

Kernel Power - Error Code 41 often times caused by conflicting drivers. If you are trying to play a game or watching videos then the computer suddenly turns off, you must first check the following:

1. Open Device Manager (click Start > type Device Manager) and go to Sound, Video, and Game Controllers and see you have two audio drivers installed and disable one at a time and see if it fixes the issue.

2. Boot into Safe mode (press F8 continuously upon boot up) and see if the computer still shuts down there. (If it doesn't try disabling start-up items using this guide

3. If you're pop-up error messages like "System services cannot be started" upon boot-up, you're operating system is corrupted and must be restored to default settings. (you need to press F11 upon boot up - remember to backup your important files)

3. If Step 2 above is true, check if the computer is overheating. If it does, the computer needs to be serviced. Contact gateway support at 1-800-846-2000.

Error code 2881


Found error in image file, Error Occurred, error 0901, 572, 2881
The camera says found error in image file, repair data now. When you press yes it says "Error occurred. Please replace disc." or use ac adapter/charger, turn off power. It won't let you go to Disc Navigation to finalize it. While recording video on DVD-R media the battery power may have failed and camera shut off. When turned on the message shown on the lcd is Found error in image file, Error Occurred, error 0901.

My hitachi bx45a said found error in image file. rapair data now if i say no it lets me do nothing and if i say yes it says use ac adapter/charger turn power off. i don't even think i have one of those...

Yesterday I filmed with Hitachi camcorder is DZ-GX5020A in back yard, I am actor and press the record is half hours. Camcorder causes "Repair Data" x Found error in image file. Repair data now?" I press the "Yes" is for 6 second is pop screen said " ! Use AC Adapter/Charger. Turn off power". I unplugged the recharge battery and use Ac Adapter with plug in the camcorder is turn on(I click turn on behind of camcorder on film logo) on "DISC ACCESS" then pop screen said "Repair Data" x Found error in image file. Repair data now?" I re-click on "Yes"(like before use battery pack recently) is 19 second on "Repairing" on pop screen repeat again on it's said "X Error occurred. Please Replace disc." I press square make stop. Then check said "DISC ACCESS" Then I press record because it's said "CHECK DISC" doesn't working.

Write protected. Check disc" cause block by Repair Data's security on disc. I disabled security of Repair Data. Unknown. I am very very very angry, depression, disappointment. I am just angry at Hitechtronic, Inc. should responsible, tester, design who make camcorder should be better quality. Can you repair my mini Disc "Memorex "should disabled security of Repair Data? Something please help me for switch your camcorder is different brand out my mini disc on finalize and back to me?. Can you ask tech should fix my mini disc on finalize uses on the other camcorder (borrow is temporary) make finalize? Then back my mini disc (very important) on tech had other Hitachi camcorder is DZ-GX5020A should finalize is very simple. I am very confuse or what.??

Cant unfinalize disk, please help

First of all - only DVD-RW discs in VIDEO mode can be unfinalised.

To unfinalise a disc

1. Place the camcorder on a table or other stable surfacebefore starting. Even slight impacts tothe camcorder ater the unfinalise process starts may mean you permanently lose your data.
2. Power the camcorder using the compact power adapter. You cannot unfinalise if the camcorder is powered only with the battery pack.
3. Press the 'FUNC.' key
4. Use the joystick to select 'MENU' - it's in the botom left corner of the screen
5. Use the joystick to select 'DISC OPERATIONS'
6. Use the joystick to select 'UNFINALIZE'
7. Use the joystick to select 'YES' to answer the question 'do you wish to continue?'
