Re: Do I have to use the AC adapter/charger when...

I got a hitachi camcorder at a flee market and it did not come with an instruction book. Everything is fine up to the part where I have to finalize the disc in order to play it back on my DVD player or whatever. I have all the cords but don't know where the outlet on the camcorder is, in order to plug into the ac charger.. In other words: Where do I plug the cords. I can't find anything on the camcorder that will ssupport the cords,, Is there a hidden slot somewhere on the camcorder???? Please help, Email me at...... jackmoby2000@yahoo.com


Thanks Mel

Yes. Finalization cannot be executed using a battery. If the finalizing process is interrupted by a loss of power, the disc will not be finalized correctly and the content stored on the disc may be damaged.

SOURCE: Where Do I Connect My AC Adapter and USB cord on the camcorder???

There should be a cover on the front of the camera (where the lens is) that pops open. All the ports are in here.

Damaged DVD-R Disc


Try to play it by connecting camcorder through the ac adapter/charger which will further connect the battery, so this means you do not have to put the battery in the camcorder rather get it through the ac adapter/charger and format if it asks to. I recovered 1 disc by doing so!

Finalizing dvd


I had the same problem for about an hour. I finally got it, though not sure how. I think it had something to do with the green button on the on/off switch. I pressed it down while at the same time pushing the on/off button down to "mode". When I went back to finalize it yet again, I got the option to select "Yes". Hooray!

Problem in finalizing the disc over camcorder.


Inorder to finalize the disc you must purchase, or have a piece for the charger that looks like a battery. it plugs into the charger than into the camera. The camera will not finalize the disc without it incase the battery runs out, than all info would be lost.

A huge pain in the ***. I know, I have the same problem.
