Sounds like it's having trouble reading have you tried a lense cleaner disc? IF that doesn't work you will have to find a repair depot. I havent had much luck with DVD camcorders My advice get a hard drive camera or older tape camera you will be happier. Sorry to say that but too many of these hard drive camcorders are even putting errors on the discs and make it very hard to edit in a computer later on.
Cheers

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

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
