    early1234, the problem isn't in USB, it's firewire cable, and now it does get close to recognising the device but as soon as it tries to install devcie, in device manager it says "61882 class bus device", and there is yellow round on it with "!" this sign.

    i even have installed service pack 3 and all those weird stuff but still it doesn't recognises it, and my friends pc with windows xp SP2 does, i hade before windows xp pro SP2 but it had same problem.

Bad picture

try cleaning the tape path, especially the rubber pinch roller, with an alcohol swab....but how is the performance as a web-cam? (when connected to pc)? if same result, then problem is deeper, maybe CCD

SCD23 LCD screen tiles and so does the video upon playback.

Sonys jvc's samsungs all have their ccd imager problems, In your model however I have seen the connector on the ccd board detach itself from the pcb and just needs to be soldered back down.

Camera records only sound

This is a known issue with this model Samsung camcorder. Please contact Smasung customer service to arrange to have the camera shipped to them for a CCD replacement. There should be no charge for this repair as Samsung is well aware of the issue. Hope this help you out. Joe Weibel
