Help with capturing from Hitachi cam.

  De Nada 12:31 09 May 2006

My daughter bought a dvd camcorder, Hitachi DZ-MV1000E, i have tried to capture using bundled software, but it just wont let me,it is usb connection only, when i turn the camcorder on after connecting to pc it seems ok then it seems to turn itself off, i have been at it for two days now with no luck,i tried my pinnacle software but no joy,thanks in advance.

Do mean a DV Camcorder or DVD Camcorder - in the latter case, you may find that Pinnacle can not import DVD format.

Under explorer, can you see the camera listed as a "removable drive"?

Why do you want to import from the camera - can't you just take the disk out and copy directly off that?

sorry for delay,the camera didnt come with a 8cm disc so she bought a dvd-ram rw which i took off and put it in my pc and dvd player but it wouldnt play,i am going to buy some dvd-r which i think will play on my pc and dvd, i think then i will be able to get it on my pc to edit etc,
