SOURCE: Sc-D453 dosn't connect to my computer

you need a driver for that to be able to recognize your camcorder on your computer.

after you download the driver, install it to your pc and it should be recognizable after you done it.
as for editing, windows moviemaker is a good software for editing but i prefer to use Ulead Movie maker, Ulead Producer or anything about Ulead because its so easy to use for editing and saving a movie or video files from your camcorder. you can also use your usb for connecting the interface with your camcorder and pc. hope that helps you and thank you for using fixya. dont forget to rate thanks!

SOURCE: My SC-DC163 camcorder does nothing when I try to upload videos to my PC.

the way you can transfer your videos on your computer is by using USB cable and install the driver to your computer. You can upload your videos by saving it on ULEAD products. As far as i know you cant transfer videos from disc to your memory card unless it was been converted but you cant view or watch it on your camcorder itself only computer can play this because your camcorder is not able to play such converted files.

thank you for using fixya

SOURCE: I recorded a video on my samsung sc-dc 164

how did you transfer the video from the card to your PC?

did you connect the camcorder to your PC or did you use a memory card reader?

if you can play the audio then what you need is the right video codec for the unit
try searching for video codecs through search engines

make sure that the software that you are using to play the video plays the file format of your video,

try using roxio, then connect the camcorder to your computer via USB, make sure that the drivers are installed, play the video through your camcorder then use roxio to capture it real time instead of the usual "copy-paste"

SOURCE: Memory Card Problems

According to the samsung website " Samsung camcorders manufactured in 2004 and later can be used with memory sticks up to 1GB. Anything over 1GB is not guaranteed to work. "

I have the same problem. Video works fine on my 256MB card but not on my 4GB or 8GB cards. It would be nice to know if anyone has success with a particular card >1GB.
