Reading this made me very mad, unlucky me bought the DZ-MV730A model! I've been scouring the internet looking for a way to edit the video on my PC with no luck. Damn you Hitachi and your special format! Oh well, next time I'll by a Sony Handycam.

Yes. Except for the DZMV730A model. A CD-ROM is packaged with each of the other units. It includes the USB Driver, UDF File System, DVD-RAM Editing and DVD-R Authoring Software.

How can I view and Edit a from an 8mm Video Camcorder Cannon UC5500 to LG HDMI digital TV?

Things you need to do is:
1. Put your 8 mm disc in your computer;
2. Make use of a editing program to open up the videos on discs and edit it;
3. Output your after-edit videos as you like, such as burn a DVD disc or save back to your camcorder.
You can connect your camcorder with digital TV using its special line, or play back discs in DVD player. However, to get the best HD effects, you need more equippments.
Use a powerful editing software like ArcSoft ShowBiz 5 to cover the task. Their website supplies free-of-charge version in 30 days.

Hitachi MV550e camcorder with vista

I have installed my 350e with the WinXP drivers on my Vista box. After install went ok, the DVD-Cam drive came up under my computer.

Copied the video file across to the desktop and changed the extension to MPG.

Plays fine in WMP, should be able to edit ok with Vegas or smilir I guess.

At least I can download from the camera disks and archive now. :)

How do I upload my raw-video from my Hitachi BX35A mini DVD-RW camcorder to my pc for editing? I have a Hitachi camcorder bx35a, and I misplaced the accessories when moving. How can I upload the raw video...

I think I had a similar problem with my new Panasonic DVD camcorder. Even though I had finalised the RAM disc the PC could not read the disc but could see it. I tried drag & drop into a new folder on my PC. I then renamed the video files by changing the ending to .VOB.
I could then open & play these files in Power DVD. Using software downloaded from the internet I converted the VOB files into AVI and could then use PINNACLE to edit them into a holiday movie/DVD. Some software will enable editing/reading of VOB fileswithout converting to AVI but as I am familiar with PINNACLE I just stick with what I know! Bit laborious but it worked for me.
I still prefer my mini dv camcorder - firewire works perfectly & direct into PINNACLE software for editring..
Hope it works for you

Which Hitachi models use a disc caddy to hold the DVD disc while in the Camcorder?

Current Hitachi Models use no disc caddy for the DVD disc. The 2003 and 2004 line of Hitachi DVD-Camcorders (DZMV350A, DZMV380A and DZMV550A and DZMV580A) utilize a round disc holder to accommodate the smaller design of the newer models. All previous generation DVD-Camcorders use a square cartridge. The actual discs are the same and can be used in all models as long as the disc is placed in the appropriate holder or cartridge.
