I have a Hitachi DZ-GX5020A DVD camcorder and I can't get the videos to play on my PC. The Computer won't read the little discs so there is no way I can even burn it onto a big disk. There is no cables to hook it up to the computer. Everyone keeps telling us that the computer should read the little discs fine and I can't get any video to come up! it's frustrating

Have just inherited this digital camcorder. Want to record video onto card rather than tape so bought a new card today. Tried to use for the first time but on pressing the record button I get a red 10 second countdown on the screen and then it beeps and the recording stops. Am able to play back the 10 seconds of footage ok but can't get it to record for any longer. Have gone through the instruction booklet with a fine tooth come and probably missing something really simple - but want to use

Video clips The video of clips I take and download onto my pc from my Canon PowerShot A620 "jump" during playback but the audio portion of the clip plays fine. I'm using windows vista home basic. When I burn them onto DVD and then try them on a different PC the same thing happens. But when I download the same video clip directly from the same camera to a different PC the video plays fine. Any suggestions?

I have a Samsung VP-D353i camcorder and since I used the Nite Shutter to film in darkness the other day, it will no longer allow me to record hardly anything at all. All I can get on the viewfinder is a bright white screen and when I try to play a tape back, I can only get any sound on it with the viewfinder pulled out, but then I get no picture as it's still all white. I read somewhere that the charge coupled device might be damaged? Can anyone help please?
