Question about Hitachi DZ-HS300A DVD Camcorder
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 PCMag.com) 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.

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. I believe the Hitachi camcorder cause damage on disc is erase, malfunction problem cause damage or security something. When I filmed my niece Anna Maria's B-day, Disneyland, etc. are last week agothen I am actor are filmed inside of the mini disc is very important, I tried on Finalize doesn't working cause said "Finalize Disc...! 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.??
