SOURCE: downloading video files from Hitachi camcorder hard drive to imac

The best way is to download a file converter and convert the files from the Hitachi hard drive to MOV format. I used an AVS converter to do this.

SOURCE: won't finalize or view on computer

You have to plug in the AC adapter to finalize a disc. It won't "finalize" on the battery alone.

SOURCE: Hitachi Camcorder Finalizing

I struggled with the same problem. The disc cannot be finalized without the power adapter that connects the charger to the camera. After much research, I finally found the solution. Do a Google search for Hitachi part # EV11012. Panasonic uses the same part number for the same part but for some reason the Panasonic part is usually $50 more expensive than the identical Hitachi part. Either brand EV11012 part is the magical part you need and I found my brand new Hitachi OEM part online for $20. Prior to be finding the correct part number, merely searching the internet for an AC adapter for the BX35a only yielded results for all the crappy Chinese aftermarket battery chargers.

Hitachi DZ-MV730A camera freezes up when creating thumbnails


May be disk space issue. Copy all up your local drive, empty disk and try recording again.

Blue Thumbnails


Has this happened with more than one disc? Sounds like you may have gotten a bad disc, happens sometimes, especially with cheaper brands. I try to stick to Verbatim for my blanks. I would finalize the disc before trying to repair anything, that way the filesystem is complete. Sometimes a camera will not be able to read the disc but the more stable laser and environement of a computer will. If it starts to happen a lot even with high quality media then there might be something wrong with the camera, clean the lense carefully and see if there may be a new firmware on the net for it. Hope this helps.

You can puschase the NERO program that sometimes works with most disks. The program costs around 75 dollars. Or you can Simply go to a store that sells this model camera or one that uses the disc and simply ask to try out one of the models and finalize it there, I was trying to explain a few other options in our live session before you aborted it after waiting on me to look up the possible solutions for over half an hour. I do apologise that you are unhappy about the live chat support fees.

Ihave a DVD cam hitachi DZ-MV730A and I don't have the software for convert mini DVD to regular DVD what can I do?


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.

DZ-MV730A Cam - unable to finalize, locks up creating thumbnails


Sorry this isn't the ultimate solution especially if the disc is full - I'm still trying to retrieve data from a disc that locks up creating thumbnails although it will play on the camcorder to a point. If there is room left on the disc, try recording briefly then press disc navigation button. A couple of times I was able to get past the lockup this way.

NEED FINALIZING DVD


I had the same problem. What I did on my Hitachi DVDCam was to click the "Stop" button to clear all keystrokes. Then, click "Menu". The camera might say "Creating Thumbnails" for a minute but then it will stop and display a mock menu for your mini dvd. Then click "Menu" and the toolbar should pop up. With the arrow keys, scroll down. You should see a menu that says "Finalize DVD" click this. For a small dvd, it will take around 13 min. to finalize.

I had the same problem - you are (as I was) turning off the camera too soon after you hit the stop button after recording a scene. Wait until the word "disc access" appears (about 5 seconds after you hit the stop button. This "marks" the end of the scene. I just don't know how to edit that scene out or if it will delete it out. I know after finalizing the disc that scene will pause for a while (10 to 20 seconds even) when you watch it through the DVD player to the TV.

NEED FINALIZING DVD


Hi!! My husband just sat down and finally figured this out,

You have to use disc navigation, then wait for the thumbnails to show up and then push menu and scroll down three times to the disc, and then choose finallize and then tell it yes. You do have to have it plugged into the a/c adapter tho in order to do this for some reason.

Hope this helps,

Gin
