DVD Movie Album SE 4.1 and DVDfunStudio

I have a Hitachi cam DZ-MV750E which takes video just fine on mini DVD-R and on mini DVD-RAM but when I try to bring the video to my PC nothing shows up.

I have tried to install the programs which came with the camera - MovieAlbum SE 4.1 and DVDfunStudio but only get the following error message:-
Component: Disk<1>
File Group: Disk 1 Files(1)
File: c:program filesInstalShield Installation Information
Error: Data error (cyclic redundancy check)

I have Windows XP and all updates. I use DVD RW drive HP DVD 940 which supports DVD Ram amongst others.

I have tried to use Windows Movie Maker and Nero's movie package but without success. Windows Movie Maker at least finds the camera when it is plugged into the USB port but will not "see" the disks.

Can anyone help me load up and edit my New Zealand videos......!!

Many thanks for reading this far.

    me too!!!! Why can't I transfer my DVD R discs to the PC via DVD Movie album SE.I hane "finalised" DVD-r disc, I have downloaded all of the software, connected DZ-MV750E via USB got onto movie album SE and the DVD R disc is not showing and I get amessage like wrong format etc. I really don't think you can transfer these DVD -R (as recommended by Comet when we purchased camcorder) which is a shame to go out and buy DVD ram discs when I have 15 of these others with 3 years worth of footage on them....I am frustrated!!!

    same issue here. i have a panasonic vdr-300 and want to edit using dvd movie album se, but even tho i have finalized the disc and set up correctly, the disc is still protected or locked and the buttons stay grayed out and i cannot edit. in the manual it says something about the vdr-300 not being able to be used as a drive with the software. how to go about getting the discs to another drive besides the camcorder? frustrating, wish i would hv known b4 i wouldn't hv bought this camera.

Have you tried clicking "Preferences" - "Device Setting" - then "Drive Select" - if you have a DVD burner and the camera you must select which drive you want to read from (took me a while to find that one out),,, Hope that helps.

I never did get any answers. What I do now is copy the VRO file to my desktop and rename it by putting MP3 in.
I fortunately have Nero 6 as my burning programme which allows you to edit video.

After much trial and error getting used to the routines, I have managed to get my New Zealand video on to disk and can successfully watch them on the normal players.

I have not yet managed to edit the scenes much but when time allows no doubt it will come.

Hitachi mini dvd cam will not eject disc, will not read, will not write, will not record. Also cannot read mini disc on Windows Vista, is there a driver for either of these issues?

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.

The software is built into the camera. Go to disc navigation then once thumbnails are created press menu, scroll down to the disc icon, select finalize and confirm yes or no. The mini disc is now playable in most DVD machines.

I lost my DVD Movie Album SE install CD, so I tried to find a free download online, but to no avail. I can't use my Hitachi camera without it. I also searched all over the internet to purchase the DVD-Movie Album SE software, and ended up with my credit card being charged to a porn site, so DONT believe the places that say they have the software available for download. Its a SCAM!

I finally got ahold of Hitachi through thier website, and they sent me the names of reputable Hitachi dealers, so I ended up buying it from them. Here is a copy of the email they sent, with a list of dealers. I highly recommend going this route. It is costly, I think about $19.95 plus shipping. Here is the email Hitachi sent me:
