I just bought this darn samsung camcorder. I bought Sony DVD-RW discs and they won't format. It goes through the format process and then it says disc error. I try doing it a 2nd time and then it says NO DISC. I'm not sure what to do.

If a FORMAT ERROR message is displayed,
then the inserted disc is not formatted or it is recorded in a
different format not useable by the camcorder. If using a DVD-RW or
DVD+RW, format the disc prior to use. Otherwise, use a different disc.
You can use any type of mini dvd's aside from discs that are labelled as RAM discs. As well you won't be able to use anything branded by Sony, any other form of generic disc will work in your camcorder, you might have to format the disc before use but the camcorder will let you know when you power on your device after inserting the disc.
The following formats will work though +R, -R, +RW, -RW.
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
You need to do formatting on the disc when using it for the first time. Remember, formatting needs to be done by camcorder. If you used the disc before and formatted it on different machine - it won't work.
