"No Disk!" Error

I am new new new to camcorders. My Samsung SC-DC173U,
link to exact model http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-SC-DC173U-Camcorder-Optical-Zoom/dp/B000NVXOQS/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1201632301&sr=1-1

I bought Maxell mini DVD-RW for camcorders (30 minute). I tried 2 from the pack so far in the camcorder.
When door closes, the access light blinks 2-4 times in one second, then...
instead of getting an on-screen question on which way to format, I get "No Disk" error. Do I have the correct media for this player?

    really confused. I bought the Maxell DVD - RW 30 min 1.4GB Part no: 045089/RT. How much more exacty compatible a product could I have purchased? But really have not had time to pursue the next step in troubleshooting. Maybe this weekend. Thanks!!!

    I have a Samsung SC-DC173U camcorder and get the"no Disc" message. I am using the Sony brand DVD-RW discs. My daughter said it worked on time, but now won't recognize the disc, either new or recorded.

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

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
