Hi ron,
The first thing you should have done was to search online for "driver for hitachi dz-gx20a". Doing so would have got you a hit on a Hitachi library.

eBay is the best place to look for things like this - you will find many of them for very reasonable, some aftermarket, some original.

Hi There, Impact damage could cause all sorts of problems. Some may be minor and some major. Unless your an electronics tech or you feel up to opening the unit, you may not know what your actually looking for. A repair shop might be your best bet. If you do open the unit, check for broken cct boards, poor connections especially around where the battery terminals are or where the external power supply plugs in?
Good luck, mr cicmo

pls try to connect the camcorder to your pc if you have a firewire and capture the audio recording. you can also download mymp3 audio recorder at download.com for free and record the music while playing. at this point, you can save the music to mp3 or wav file then burn it to cd if thats what you want to do so you can give a copy to your friends. hope this helps.

Looks like Hitachi doesn't have any software available on line to do it. You will have to contact them to get one.

You can use abobe software for free to try to get them or goto Kodak.com and use their free software as well.

If it doesn't see your camera as a disk drive in my computer, you can get a card reader to retrieve the pictures that way.

Heres the owners manual if you need one:

try to look at the bottom of the dvd camcorder and you may find it there. it is usually on the sticker that is sticked in the unit. You may also bring your camcorder to an electronic shop and they might help you find the model so you can buy spare cables. hope this helps.

I have the same camera, and found out that the VRO file is just MPEG2. So copy the VRO file onto your computer from your disc. Once its on your harddrive, you can right click on it and go to properties. Re-name your file from VRO to MPG, making sure that you still have the original VRO file in case you need it for other programs. Once I change it to MPG file name, I can use media player to play it and I have a DVD movie maker where i can edit and record to DVD.

The finalizing time depends on the remaining time on the DVD-R disc; Approximately 8 minutes to finalize with 20 minutes recording time on disc Approximately 3 minutes to finalize with 10 minutes recording time on disc Approximately 2 minutes to finalize with no recording time on disc. DVD-R discs recorded on the DVD-Camcorder cannot be finalized on other DVD-R Recorders or PCs.

I got a hitachi camcorder at a flee market and it did not come with an instruction book. Everything is fine up to the part where I have to finalize the disc in order to play it back on my DVD player or whatever. I have all the cords but don't know where the outlet on the camcorder is, in order to plug into the ac charger.. In other words: Where do I plug the cords. I can't find anything on the camcorder that will ssupport the cords,, Is there a hidden slot somewhere on the camcorder???? Please help, Email me at...... jackmoby2000@yahoo.com


Thanks Mel

The only reason that you have to finalize a DVD-R disc is so that you can play it back in an external DVD. Once finalized, you can no longer add motion video to that particular disc. Discs that are not finalized can still be played back when inserted in the DVD-camcorder.

No, The round DVD holder is necessary for using on DZ-MV350 or DZ-MV380.

Current Hitachi Models use no disc caddy for the DVD disc. The 2003 and 2004 line of Hitachi DVD-Camcorders (DZMV350A, DZMV380A and DZMV550A and DZMV580A) utilize a round disc holder to accommodate the smaller design of the newer models. All previous generation DVD-Camcorders use a square cartridge. The actual discs are the same and can be used in all models as long as the disc is placed in the appropriate holder or cartridge.
