I have the camcorder but haven't had any problems finalizing the disk but i will tell you you will be very disapointed when you do figure it out and get to watch it in a dvd player very bad quality video and the still pics are horrible was very disappointed in samsung with this product and will be returning it...try to delete a little section of video to make room to finalize and make sure your battery has atleast 2 bars or it will not finalize

Disk wont finalize samsung sc-dx103


Samsung support just told me that there has to be some space left on the disc to finalize it. In other words if you fill the disc with too much video, the disc won't be able to write the necassary info on the disc to finalize it. Support told me you needed 10MB to finalize. He also told me to leave 7- 10 minutes of free space which is ridiculous because the disc only records 20 minutes. I have complained to Samsung about this ommission from the manual and that the camcorder should know to leave enough space to finalize the disc.>

Write error


I think i just figured it out. Somewhere else on the web clued me in that the disc got messed up (don't know how). I put in a new disc and it works. Other disc still doesn't though.

Write error


I had the same problem. Called Samsung, they told me not to use DVD+R DL discs (despite their presence in the compatibility table in the manual). They also said DVD+R discs don't need finalizing, which contradicts the manual. I can't get them to play in my PC. For the first two discs I tried, it seemed to get write errors halfway through the disc, as if it had trouble with the second layer. I didn't record long enough on the third to find out. The camcorder still shows video on the third disc, but I can't finalize it and it won't play on my PC. Glad I'm only borrowing this camera. Won't buy a Samsung, and probably won't buy a DVD cam.

Video not found after finalizing disc on Samsung SC-DC164 DVD Camcorder


Put it back in the Camera and see if it tells you the disc is finalized when it tries to format the disc. If it does then you know for sure it is finalized..

DVD Camcorder appears to have erased disc mid record!


I know it won't play in a dvd player till it is finalized. Leave it in camera mode, hit menu, and scroll down till you see the option to finalize. If you finalize it, it should play in a dvd player. I am having a problem with my camera(same model) where it won't finalize the disc. Any help out there?
