Question about Samsung SC-D363 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Fire wire and video driver problems

Hi, I have bought a Samsung SC-D363 and I have been trying to move my videos from my miniDV to my computer and it doest work. I have been able to move the videos from the camara to my computer using the USB cable and the Ulead software that came with the camara but the resolution is very poor.( I'll mention that even installing the DV driver and the video codec is not enough to allow the camara to be recognized by the computer, thus once I plug in the camara to the computer a "Found new Hardware Wizard" appears and asks me to install a "Samsung Video Capture" and a "USB audio device"). Unfortunely, when I try to use the FireWire, the computer doesn't recognize the camara at all. Not even with the previously mentioned stuff installed.So I am not able to move the videos with the resoultion that they should posses. Can somebody tell me a soultion to the problem?

    I figured that I was using the wrong cable ( USB on one side and firewire on the other) so I bought a IEEE 1394 cable with both 4 pin on both sides and connected the camcorder to my notebook port. It workes. But still, I am a little disappointed thus after capturing the video to my computer, it has some distortion (horizontal bars that appear during movements). Does anyone has an answer to this?

Horizontal bars on the LCD display is ONE indicator of a dirty playback head on the camcorder. Purchase a head cleaning tape (Bestbuy, Target, etc., for about $20) and try cleaning the playback head. I had to do that on my SC-D365 yesterday (9/7/07) and it cleared up the problem. Good luck!

Don't have cds for SC-D363 to use with PC


I have a Sc-D365, which as I understand it, the same as the SC-D363 but has a couple more bells and whistles. You need to download the drivers and other software so it will talk to your computer. Go to : http://www.samsung.com/us/support/search/supportSearchResultView.do?group=&group_cd=&type=&type_cd=&subtype=&subtype_cd=&model_nm=SCD363&dType=D&vType=L&mType=&model_cd=&menu=&language= to download the stuff you need. The page will have a tab for each of: "Manual", "Drivers", "Software" and you ll have to select each tab to get the files you need in each category. You will also need to buy a Firewire cable (IEEE 1394) with a small male connector on one end (camera side) and a regular sized connector male on the other (computer side). If you don't already have a Firewire interface on your computer, you will need to get one. That's the only way you can get the video from the TAPE. You will also need to get a USB cable with standard USB male on one end (computer side) and mini on the other (camera side). Once you download the User's Manual, it lists the part numbers of the USB cable and the analog cable to connect it to the TV. The USB cable is used to transfere photos and video files stored on the Memory Stick PRo memory module (user-supplied) and to stream live video to your computer. I use my SC-D365 for webcam applications in video conferencing, it works rather well for that, too. Good luck!

Samsung SC-D363 won't load to my computer


If you are trying to move video that is stored on TAPE, you need to get a Firewire cable. Using the USB cable, you can only transfer photos and video that is stored on the Memory Stick Pro memory card (user-supplied). The Firewire cable has a standard IEEE-1394 male connector on the computer end and a mini IEEE-1394 male connector on the camera end. If you don't have a Firewire interface on your computer, you will need to get one. Good luck.

Horizontal green bars whenever I play my tape!


I've had a similar problem that I've solved using a head cleaner. I think it was about $20 at Target and is good for 30 cleanings.
