May i know what type of disc are you using?

Is it DVD+R? DVD-R? DVD+RW? DVD-RW?

You might wanna try to transfer your videos to your computer via USB streaming to check if you can still retrieve your videos.

My SC-DC163 camcorder does nothing when I try to upload videos to my PC.


the way you can transfer your videos on your computer is by using USB cable and install the driver to your computer. You can upload your videos by saving it on ULEAD products. As far as i know you cant transfer videos from disc to your memory card unless it was been converted but you cant view or watch it on your camcorder itself only computer can play this because your camcorder is not able to play such converted files.

thank you for using fixya

I think i just figured it out. Somewhere else on the web clued me in that the disc got messed up (don't know how). I put in a new disc and it works. Other disc still doesn't though.

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.

Video not found after finalizing disc on Samsung SC-DC164 DVD Camcorder


Put it back in the Camera and see if it tells you the disc is finalized when it tries to format the disc. If it does then you know for sure it is finalized..

DVD Camcorder appears to have erased disc mid record!


I know it won't play in a dvd player till it is finalized. Leave it in camera mode, hit menu, and scroll down till you see the option to finalize. If you finalize it, it should play in a dvd player. I am having a problem with my camera(same model) where it won't finalize the disc. Any help out there?
