This looks as if it needs a clear or new disk each recording
will not record on a disk with existing data on it.
The manual should explain this,

My Panasonic Lumic DMC-F3 Will start to record videos, but when I go to stop the recording and save it to the camera, it says "Read Error" and shuts itself down... I don't know what it is. Any ideas? And...


Make sure you are not using an incompatible card like a SDHC card which looks identical. If the F3 can use those cards, make sure you format it in the menu system. If it still fails, try another card, it may be bad. Remove the card and do a short recording to internal memory to check system, if it is capable.

My hitachi dvd/cam model bx35a i have brought three different sd cards i can record but i can not take a photo keeps saying card error


Check the manual, I think you have to format the card for the Hitachi camera. You only have to do this once with each card you use.

When you format the card, it makes a new folder (directory) for that specific device. i think there is a setup / format SD card command. Make sure you empty the movie that you have on the card before you format.

Hi! Looks like that the camera has a system crash. I strongly suggest that you have it looked at by a qualified technician to check the circuit board of the camera. Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa!

Can not get disk write protection to go off so i can delete photo


The write protection is software controlled. An error in the header record of the media may prevent you from changing this value. Save all the photos onto your computer and try formatting the memory card with the camera. Do not format the card or delete photos in your computer using a card reader device as this may be how the error was introduced.

I have a Hitachi DZ-GX5040E digital camcorder but have misplaced the CD Rom and cannot install on computer. I bought it over a month ago, but have all the reciepts. Is there a download for it, or can I...

To get the software disc, or an email of the software,you can select your country then look for the camcorder 'email support' link.Then ask your question direct to Hitachi.
You will have to give the serial number as well as the model number of your camcorder.
Your cam is not designed for to transfer by cable direct to a pc.You should record onto a DVD, than you can transfer it from the DVD to your PC.Of course, in your caseyou will have to get back a software disk first! Does not your cam record onto SD memory cards too? Big sizes of those...as big as a DVD are getting much cheaper now.You can transfer easily from one of those, to a pc by using a simple SD/USB adaptor if your pc does not have an SD card reader.The adaptors cost less that £1 in the uk.I guess they are less than US$2 everywhere.They are just a plastic thing with a USB plug on one end, under a cap.The other end has a cap too, and you remove it to slide an SD memory card insided. The it becomes a USB memory stick, and anything on it can be downoaded to a pc.
There's a lot of other useful information linked to the above page, such as DVD camcorder FAQs, user manual downloads etc., but in general, there are so many different Hitachi sites in a country, that the correct one is hard to find. When I seached using your cam model number, it kept coming up as unrecognised, and I just kept trying sites until I found it.Tha letter 'E' on the end of the model number appears to mean European.
Good luck.
