How do I find the delete option on my hitachi camcorder?


Hi! The solution to your problem is Three fold.

First make sure that your Camcorder is in the Disc Navigation mode to be able delete your required scene. When the camcorder is in the play back mode the delete scene won't appear.

The second situation is to check if your scene is not locked because if it is locked you are not able to delete it.
Supposing that your scene is not locked then check what type of DVD disc you have. The discs labelled DVD Ram, DVD+RW, and the Card can be deleted. The DVD-RW can be deleted only when in VR mode and not the VF mode. Other types of discs like the DVD R can not be deleted.

Another way of deleting a scene after it has been recorded on a disc that's not deletable is to transfer the recorded scene to a computer disc and then edit it off.

How do i upload the disk onto my mac at home. There isnt a tray dvd-rom it is an ejectable disk format. I put the mini dvd in and nothing happens...seconds later it ejects.


You're fortunate the disc ejects. Many slot-loading DVD drives will get these mini discs stuck in them. You either need an external tray type DVD drive (some are $50 or less) or borrow a computer a tray type DVD drive with either the possibility of copying the data to the hard drive and then to a full size DVD (or dual optical drives (only one needs to be a writer) to copy from one to another). Check the specs for mini-disc (8 cm) support.

I wish that I could be of more help.

Camera will not allow me to finalize some dvd's


If your camera finalized the same type (+R, +RW, -R, -RW) of disk previously, the problem may be the disk itself. Some 2% of the disks (no-brand and copy-brand disks even higher %-age) are faulty and either do not allow recording at all or fail at some point.

Bought the cam used need to know how to load the dvd looks like it might be ,missing a cartridge or something


The DVD-RAM media for this camcorder is encased in a plastic cartridge. Several companies make the media for this corder, Maxell calls it DVD-RAM Camcorder (DVD RAM 4.7) 2.8GB. You must verify it shows compatibility with Hitachi Camcorders, as the Sony media does not use the cartridge but is the same ram disc, so you could easily buy the wrong type.

Why should I record my memories on a Hitachi DVD Camcorder?


The picture and sound quality of footage stored on a DVD does not degrade over time. Home movies can be shared with friends and family decades into the future in perfect and pristine condition. Motion video stored on a 8 cm (3 inch) DVD-R disc can be played back on most DVD players and compatible PC DVD drives. After finalizing the DVD-R disc in the camcorder, it can be placed directly into your home DVD player and played back. No additional adapters are necessary and you do not have to connect the camcorder to the television. With DVD, you can instantly access desired scenes without having to endure the time consuming task of fast-forwarding or rewinding. Through Hitachi’s Disc Navigation feature, you simply select the thumbnail image of your favorite scene and it begins to play immediately. 2005 Hitachi DVD Camcorders support four different types of recording media. For motion video you have the option of using a 8 cm (3 inch) DVD-R disc or a 8 cm (3 inch) DVD-RAM disc. Digital still photos can be stored on DVD-RAM discs, Secure Digital cards or MultiMedia Cards. Size Hitachi introduced the world’s first DVD based camcorder three years ago. Since then, Hitachi engineers have been able to perfect the technology and to reduce the physical mass of the camcorder by 45% making it the most portable DVD camcorder in the industry.
