Trying to transfer video to my computer (iMovie

S-Video does not have sound, you will need to run separate audio cables to your sound cards input ports. S-Video is only for the video signal (Chroma and Luminance), there is no provision for sound.

This has happened to me many times. The disk has an error (they alway do).

1: Turn it off.
2: Attatch power connection.
3: Hold down eject button.
4: It should say: "DISK ACCESS"
5: It may take a long time, but put it down in this state and leave it for as long as it may take.
6: Later on, it will eject the disk.
7: Discard of this disk, it's nothing but trouble.

Hello, my Hitachi VM-H675LA is having some problems.

Hi, Please use the yellow pages website to find a camera shop that can help fix your camera. If that does not work, you can take it to your local Geeksquad/Bestbuy and they can work on the camera for you. Otherwise, you might also call Hitachi directly to ask them about the nearest repair shop that you could send the camera to. Thank you.

I am receiving an ERROR CODE 2881 on my Hitachi DZ-MV550A.

It is a disk error! Change the disk you are using, probably you are trying to use an RW disk! Better +/-R.

I have a Hitachi DVD camcorder model DZ-MV230A , I was given this but did not come with the software, camera is useless without it, any idea where I can get the software to allow use of the camera?

Your best bet is to go online. Type the make and model number into google, then check the results for hitachi’s own website.
They might still have the software available for download.
I did a quick search in the US and found:

This may or may not help....

My Hitachi VM H710A plays just fine, and the picture looks fine. But when it playsback footage or records footage, five to ten seconds later, it stops abruptly, and flashes the word "TAPE".

Try to rewind tape few times, also try on other tape if that happening to it? If that happens on every tape i would suspect loose belt somewhere in mechanism.
