    I have the same problem and spent about 30 minutes with someone from sony online chat. Tried to reset the camera to no avail. If you get this error when the camera is new take it back. I unfortunately have 3-4 discs that worked right away and several that didn't and thought the discs were bad.

    Sony wanted $110 to repair the camera. This is my last SONY camcorder, based on the numerous posts I have seen with no resolution, nor will they tell me what is wrong without paying $110.

Had the same problem after purchasing DVD+RW discs. Exchanged for DVD-RW discs and it worked. I guess they are formatted differently.

Sony DCR-DVD403 C 13:02 Error Message so won't record movies.


Place an empty disc in, format the disc, record a little scene. Turn off camcorder. Place the error disc in the camcorder, turn on the camcorder all the way to play/edit. If this doesn't work turn it to record and try to record. Worked for some of my error disc

Sony camcorder 'Movie recording disabled'


You need to finalize it in the camera, the one you used.

Then you should be able to access what little data if any on it.

If you can not get it to finalize then take both the camera and disk to a photo shop. They may be able to recover it for you.

Let us know the results. Good luck

Wont play disc back that it recorded.


I get loads of the same question you ask every day, the DVD disks do sadly fail, out of a pack of 10 you can say that 2 will not write or play back, this is still the reason most pro movie makers like myself will only use movie tape today like the Hi 8 mm sort.
Also beware as we have found that lots of DVD disks we have made over 9 years ago no longer will work, so never feel your precious movies are pernament with this new mode of recordings.

Try to use a cotton swap to 1st clean the recording lens or blow gently on it. Place an empty disc in, format the disc, record a little scene. Turn off camcorder. Place the error disc in the camcorder, turn on the camcorder all the way to play/edit. If this doesn't work turn it to record and try to record. Worked for some of my error disc

C:13:02, Disc error. Remove disc. Recording disabled.


I'm sorry to say, that all disk manufactures are not the same. If you used a "no name" disk, then the quality may not be what you want, although in rare cases, even good companys like Memorex can make a bad batch or two. Just try another disk. Let me know if that works by leaving a comment. If this works for you, rate my solution a fixya!

Viewing Discs on Samsung VP-DC161


RE; smasung DC 161(i) pal and possibly other models The reason why there is no disc message when there is definitely a disc is installed is because the disc programming has malfunctioned, Its because of Samsungs poor design, after powering up the camcorder and inserting a disc, the disc will load and a green flashing light appears for a minute or two while loading if the Samsung camcorder is switched off while loading the camcorder will essentailly self destruct and their is no remedy, however that does not mean the Samsung is completely useless,the camcorder can record on a 4 GB SDHC(max 4GB) card using the switch from disc to memory card
