Re: samsung sc-dc173U

When you plug the camera via USB, it creates a drive on your file system. Just open the files explorer and search for the new drive. If you are looking for the camera wizard, follow this link to activate the AutoPlay again

Uploading video from sc-d353 camera to Mac

Final Cut may not sync with the Camcorder. I assume you're running firewire into the g4. Try capture as an analog device.

Formatting the disk

Yes, the mini DVD-RW will work on this camera. When you insert the disk and power on the camcorder (with the mode on DISC), the camcorder will try to read the disk, and if it isn't formatted yet, the LCD display will offer you the option to format it (in VR or Video mode). Simply select and click to format the disk

Samsung SC-D363 Question

first of you need a driver. i will put a link if you dont have. this will recognize your device to your computer(i use USB for this) so that you can use it.

second have an editing video software to put your videos in to one or arrange it to make a whole video. i use ULEAD MOVIE MAKER to edit and put something like music, titles, etc..

third, now you can upload your video to a website like youtube or any video hosting site. hope that helps!

Can Not Transfer Video to Computer

The Samsung web site has a 32-bit Vista driver but no 64-bit driver. Come on, it's 2009 for God's sake!


For Vista (or any OS), first FINALIZE* the mini-disk using your Samsung camera. FINALIZING creates a DVD out of your mini-disk. You can put that in your computer and it will play just like any DVD. If you want to edit your movies, your mini-DVD has .vob (movie) files on it.

Movie Maker won't import a .vob file so you'll have to convert it to .avi using a third-party conversion tool. I use Need4Video for around $50. I think there's free ones out there too.

And that's how I spent my summer vacation.
