Some times Optical Block (lens) got stuck at end position and couldn't release / move itself to read TOC of disc.

If you have little experience then eject disc cover, take out dvd and move optical block with carefully towards outer side.

Be Careful while doing this and do not put much force to move lens.

Its the problem of lens going dirty in the dvd player and needs cleaning or something is blocking the motor to spin internally so needs cleaning.

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 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.
