Question about Hitachi DZ-GX20A DVD Camcorder
I have a weird problem that occurs on my Hitachi DZ-MV550A NTSC DVD camcorders: If I try to record on a 60 minute DVD for more than 55 minutes, I get an error message (either 0901 or 2881), and I am unable to finalize the disc, so everything I've just recorded is permanently lost. I've called customer support, and they tell me that the camera shouldn't behave this way, but they don't have any idea why it does, and it's not under warranty anymore so they won't fix it unless I shell out a ton of money. Has anyone else had this problem? Anyone have any idea why it happens or what to do about it? Is there any hope of ever recovering the stuff I've recorded on the bad DVDs? Could it be the brand of DVDs I'm using (Maxell DVD-R)? Thanks!

I also have this problem with my hitachi camcorder and have called with no resolution as well. I have purchased every type of DVD-R and they all do the same thing. It is soooo frustrating! I've lost countless memories of my son and want to cry every time. I'm ready to throw the camera away!

I'm not sure if this relates or not. I have a Sony DVR-10 stand alone DVD recorder and if I'm using DVD+R I have to leave some time for the DVD to be finalize. If I record all the way to end I just made coaster. Now if I use a DVD+RW I don't have to finalize, I can play it in a PC but not a DVD player. So to be safe I now record on DVD+RW and then just copy it to DVD+R or -R on the PC.
