Just look for a dvd player that will play dvd-r's . Lately I see most units will play both dvd-r and dvd+r's so you should really have no problem here. It is compatible as long as it's dvd-r . I am not sure about your dvd player night recording question. i think you might need to clarify that one.

I have a Hitachi DVD camcorder (DzmV 730 AVP 16x optical) that I haven't used in a while. When I got it out last night I charged up the battery and put in a brand new disc, which it "couldn't...

If it sat around for a while, it likely got some dust buildup on the laser lens that reads the disc. You can open up the disc slot and clean the glass laser lens eye with rubbing alcohol and a cotton swab.

Hitachi dz-mv730a

yes, you can do it through acouple different ways, if you want it at VERY GREAT quality, you can use a firewire cable (if you have a firewire or minidv port) or you could go through usb with the appropriate cable, or through svideo cable(recommended) then once you have the camera plugged in, you can simply open windows movie maker and click on capture from device, then go through the steps...once you're done importing all the video you need, then you'll have to "Save to my computer" so that it can be played as a regular standard wmv file.

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.
