How do you backup, format and reinstall the OS from disc?

Hi, Back up your internal HD to an externa; drive using something like CarbonCopy Cloner or SuperDuper or even make a disc image of it onto the external drive.Insert your installation disc and restart the computer while holding down the C key. After a while you shoulod get the usual start=up signs and you can let go of the C.The Mac should thenm be starting from the CD/DVD and you will get a welcome to mac OS screen asking you what language yu want to work in. Choose whichever and then follow the instructions that appear on screen. Remember though, when you format, everything will be wiped from the HD.

How to format the samsung digital cam vp-d305i it says its not formatted bought the cam from a store second hand trying to figure it out

make sure your camera is set to an advanced mode, not an easy mode, and open up the menu. Search the wrench or settings options, or memory card if it has that, and look for the word format. It'll be in there somewhere.

6 seconds into recording the following message appears: write error - to recover disc, presss OK. having pressed 'OK' the screen then shows 'Disc Loading' message - this takes time and uses up battery...

It turned out to be a simple case of a defective disc, which, for some reason failed to work satisfactorily. I replaced it with a fresh disc (JVC 30 min DVD-RW) from he same batch and it formatted ok and worked well too. I checked that it had recorded and I was pleased to say that it had. So let's hope that that was the cause of my problem, because the camcorder is now just out of warranty.
Many thanks for your halp in this matter.

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

I would make sure the computer will recognize the format of the video on the disc. You may be able to google to find some usable video codecs. I like to use VLC media player for this
