How do I play my dvd camcorder sc-dc171 on my new tv. model # UN50F6300AF I know I have it connected properly and it worked on my old tv. Any help would be appreciated.

You can connect the A/V out to the inputs of the TV.
if you have any HDMI out in the camera, you can connect the same to the HDMI IN of the TV.
Last option is if you have RF modulator, you can modulate the AV out to RF and then connect the same to the TV tuner RF in of the TV.

How to load Mini DVD to Mac
  • Though Mini DVD can not be played back in Mac slot loading player, we have other ways to load Mini DVD to Mac.
  • Method 1 If Mini DVD camcorder has FireWire or USB; just connect the Mini DVD camcorder to Mac using FireWire, or USB to load Mini DVD to Mac.
  • Method 2 If Mini DVD camcorder has not FireWire or USB; just shop for external mini-DVD drive that uses either a USB or Firewire connector cable, and then connect the external mini-DVD drive to your Mac and install any extra software that came with it. Insert the mini-DVD into the external drive, and then access the files on the mini-DVD as you normally would to load Mini DVD to Mac.
  • Method 3 If Mini DVD camcorder has not FireWire or USB; buy an adapter that converts a mini-DVD to a normal DVD by adding on a circular plastic piece that emulates the full size of a regular DVD. Attach the adapter to the mini-DVD and load it into the Mac's DVD drive to access the files. (Check the specifications of the adapter before purchasing, as several on the market do not work in vertical-loading drives like those found on the MacBook Pro.)
  • Method 4 If Mini DVD camcorder has not FireWire or USB and you don't want to buy a separate external drive or full-size adapter either, but you do have access to a PC, you can transfer the files on the mini-DVD onto the PC, then put them onto a USB flash drive, which will work on your Mac.

Samsung SC-DC171 DVD Camcorder with missing software

Downloading the manual and drivers are easily found by simply Googling you camera and adding either driver or manual to the end but to get the original DVD with all the software you would have to contact Samsung themselves or their agent. It will of course cost you but not too much I'd imagine. Anoother way is to keep a check on Ebay and if you see the same model for sale send the seller an email and offer him say $10 to copy the disk and send it to you. Some camera sellers on Ebay are actually large stores so they could well have a spare they can send you. Just don't expect anything for free and offer to pay. Who knows you may end up getting it for free anyway.

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.
