Question about Samsung SC-DX103 DVD Camcorder

2 Answers

Windows Vista will not let Windows Movie Maker import/edit videos

I recently purchased a Samsung SC-DX103 DVD Camcorder and was disappointed to find that Windows Vista will not recognize the camcorder through Windows Movie Maker or Adobe Premier Pro CS3. The videos are only viewable if the DVD is inserted in another computer with Windows XP. Any help? Is this a problem with Vista, my computer (Toshiba), or the camcorder?

I would look for a more recent driver on the Samsung support website specifically for  Vista; it apparently does not have the right (or any) driver to permit it to work with your DVD camcorder. I don't think any of your hardware, computer or camcorder is dysfunctional, Windows just has to know how to communicate with it.
What you might try first is to have the camcorder connected (USB I assume) and reboot your PC. If Win can see it at all, you should get a screen message that it has found new hardware.  If it has some basic driver on hand, the message might state 'installing software for your device.'

Hello,

Best thing to do is to order a replacement disc from Samsung. Unfortunately, these files are licensed so you cannot just download it anywhere. Give Samsung a call and ask them to send you a replacement disc.

Good luck!

It sounds like you need a video codec. You can google and find free downloads, or you can load the original disc that came with your camcorder.

Cannot create dvd's with my mx20r.


Are you talking about the Cyberlink Media Show? It's really poorly designed. You can get an converter here that will allow you to use your videos with Windows Movie Maker.

Movie maker will create a DVD much quicker.

What are the steps in transferring the videos using Firewire?


Try starting Windows Movie Maker. It will have a import function that will talk to your camcorder attached Firewire. You will need Movie Maker or some other video editing software to import your tapes into your PC.

See windows help for more info:

Can not import film to PC.


I have a partial solution for those whose files come up as audio. connect your camera via USB. Windows Movie Player should recognize the camera when you select capture device. When you have your camera selected hit next. Put the file in My Video and title it. When you are ready too capture video Hit play on you camera while in the review screen. The Movie Maker will then capture your video as it plays in the camera.

Can Not Transfer Video to Computer


The Samsung web site has a 32-bit Vista driver but no 64-bit driver. Come on, it's 2009 for God's sake!

FEAR NOT:

For Vista (or any OS), first FINALIZE* the mini-disk using your Samsung camera. FINALIZING creates a DVD out of your mini-disk. You can put that in your computer and it will play just like any DVD. If you want to edit your movies, your mini-DVD has .vob (movie) files on it.

Movie Maker won't import a .vob file so you'll have to convert it to .avi using a third-party conversion tool. I use Need4Video for around $50. I think there's free ones out there too.

And that's how I spent my summer vacation.

Software upgrades


Um... this is a DVD camcorder, right. What are you expected a camcorder driver to do for you? Just put the DVD into the computer.

If you're after USB drivers for the still mode, those should only be necessary on older OSs.... Windows XP and Vista had built-in drivers for USB storage-class devices.

It's quite possible some of the applications (basic video editor, I don't know what else they might ship with the camcorder) don't work under Vista. Samsung doesn't have any software updates posted for this camcorder, and I wouldn't hold my breath... CE companies aren't likely to support products in the way you might be used to from computer companies. Given that you have Vista, you can probably import and edit video using Windows Movie Maker.
