Problem playing my camcorder disc on PC


Windows media player is not the best for playing dvds. You can get other players for free that will support the DVD format much better for you.

Here is one of the better ones. http://www.avsmedia.com/download/AVSDVDPlayer.exe

I have a Samsung DVD camera recorder (model number VP-DC171Wi). I have recorded some footage on it and would like to view it on a tv/computer. I have gone through the finalising steps, a message pops up on...


There is a problem with the units firmware and thereby not writing the disc information correctly. This can be fixed by download and installing the latest firmware update.

You can find the firmware update at this link. You MUST choose the first listed update (size 0.39 mb) as this address the compatibility issue with particular discs

I have tried to finalise the disc but it is frozen at finalising please wait, how long should it take I am worried I will lose the footage, thanks


Hi mark_carruth,

If the video is too long , then probably you would have to wait for quite a long time,

Therefore a better way is to shoot video at specific intervals , as it would create different files for each footage , so even if you lose one file , you have the others with you.

Now , in this case , I would advice you to please wait till the time you get the disc finalized and even if it's not finalized , and the disc has been written , then there is not much to worry as you might lose only a small part of the footage towards the end or ,you might not lose any part but the DVD might not work or be detected in PCs. It might be shown up as a blank one , which you know is not.

Hope this helps ..:)

I have a samsung vp-dc171w mini dvd recorder. I was told at the time of purchase that the disc would replay in a dvd player but none of mine play it. Is there an adaptor or something needed for it to play...


If your using DVD-RW make sure you format it in video mode. Do your recordings then when you want play them back on a dvd player you have to finalise the disk in the camcorder first.
If you want to continue recording you will have to un finalise the disk.

Viewing Discs on Samsung VP-DC161


RE; smasung DC 161(i) pal and possibly other models The reason why there is no disc message when there is definitely a disc is installed is because the disc programming has malfunctioned, Its because of Samsungs poor design, after powering up the camcorder and inserting a disc, the disc will load and a green flashing light appears for a minute or two while loading if the Samsung camcorder is switched off while loading the camcorder will essentailly self destruct and their is no remedy, however that does not mean the Samsung is completely useless,the camcorder can record on a 4 GB SDHC(max 4GB) card using the switch from disc to memory card

Digital cam vp-dc161


what ever size disc your using simply dont record the whole disc, example if you are recording on a 30min dvd-r only record 28mins then finalising will not be a problem.
