Cant Play Mini DVD in my PC

First time I buy a Mini DVD Camcorder, I'm kind of naive on the problems but i cannot play the Mini DVD on my PC. The errors the pops up are:

1. If i want to burn the DVD ( Like if the DVD was Blank). and we know there is data in there.
On another computer
2. That the disk might be damaged.

Any suggestion will be greatly appreciated

The cam corder should come with CD's for installing. For example: My Mini DVDS would do the same thing. I installed the cds with the camcorder and theres a tool on there that lets me import the media from the Mini DVD.

DCR-HC26 will record but will not play


There are two solutions, one, buy a mini dv tape player. They are kind of expensive, but you will be able to get your information off your tapes. Second, buy a used, working mini dv camcorder on ebay and use it to get your information off your tapes. A five year old camcorder is not work fixing.

Make sure you are in the mode to view the videos you recorded and make sure the camera is plugged in to the power supply, then the finanlize option should be available

I recorded onto DVD-R discs and then finalized but they wont play on my dvd? how can i get them to play ? i usually buy DVD RW


Some dvd players cannot play certain types of discs. You could check to see if the manufacturer of the dvd player has a firmware update to fix this problem. Older dvd players have trouble playing some of these discs. Most newer dvd players do not have issues and have upgradable firmware to adjust for different formats. Does your burner also do DVD+R discs? Maybe try using those and see if it plays on your dvd player.

Mini-DVD playback


two things:

1) connect the camcorder to your computer using a USB cable and play it through that, by the way, what computer is it?

2) you can finalize without the ac adapter - its a built in safeguard to ensure that there is enough power to allow finalization to complete

Two problems here.

To JOA629 - You may possibly have initialised the disc in VR mode by mistake. VR mode discs will not play on a PC. Are you re-initialising the disc between when it works and when it doesn't ? If you're using VIDEO mode, are you finalising the disc on the camcorder before using it on the PC ?

To dewynn729 - you have intialised the disc in VR mode, which is a newer format than VIDEO mode. VR mode discs will produce .VRO file extension. Record your video on a disc initialised in VIDEO mode, finalise the disc on the camcorder (don't forget to plug the camcorder into the power adapter, and switch both on), then read the disc on a PC.

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.
