Question about Samsung Video Cameras

I am trying to finalize my -R disc in my mini samsung dvd camcorder and it acts like it's going to finalize and then stops it with a "disc error". What is the problem?

    Thanks! My computer doesn't recognize that a disc is even in there when I put it in my laptop. My camera is a samsung model sc-dc173u.

    I just finalized a disc on it last week with no problem.

    Any other ideas?

There are a couple of possibilities for this to happen. A likely one has to do with the surface of the disc itself. This could be a fingerprint, scratch, smudge or a hair on the disc. Finalization of discs is usually only needed to allow playing in a home disc player - disc players in computers are almost always able to play discs that have not been finalized without a problem.

If you're unable to finalize in the recorder, try playing the disc in a computer disc drive instead. Copy the disc to a new, blank disc using your computer's disk recorder hardware and software. Finalize options (if you need that done) should be provided at the end of the recording process in your computer.

If you have finalizing issues with ALL of the discs you're using in the recorder - it may be a problem with the recorder. Try using different brands and speed ratings of discs you use - as it may be problem with one of those disc media variables instead of a recorder hardware problem. Most recorder manufacturers maintain a list disc media that has been tested to work satisfactorily with their hardware. Since you didn't provide the name of the device - I couldn't check for you. Google the manufacturer's name and contact them to via phone or web support pages for a list of supported media.

I hope this helps & good luck! Please rate my reply - thank you.

After recording a program on a DVD+R disc, the TV screen says "Disc Finalize Processing...." and nothing else works. I can't stop it, watch it, finalize it, or power off.


The DVD burner in your DVD-VR is defective. Get it replaced at a service center.Is is not able to read the lead in lead out information from your disc. Try playing one of the disc you have written on another DVD player.

Hi,
Make sure that MiniDVD has been finalized in camcorder then it can be playback in any other DVD Player.
Finalize option would be available in camcorder dvd setup menu, select it to finalize recorded mini dvd disc, please note UnFinalized mini dvd disc will only playback in camcorder because of its raw data and Finalization will validate this raw data so other dvd players will recognize this mini dvd disc for playback.
Hope these info will help you.
Thanks.

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

I can't see the dvds into any dvd player


Most DVD players can't play DVD-R or DVD-RW unless it's finalized (if you record to DVD+RW, it may work ok, but fewer DVD players work right with RW format discs).

Obviously, you need to ensure you are actually writing to the DVD (eg, will they play back on the camcorder). You should see if there's a menu for finalizing the DVDs, that might do it. There are occasionally problems with finalizing discs on some of these DVD camcorders... these discs may not be readable on any DVD player, but might still work in a PC.

The other problem is that some camcoders record in DVD-VR format, which is a special "easily edited" format for DVD camcorders only... regular DVD players don't usually support this (well, some new ones might... this is one of those "evolving standard" issues). You'll probably need a PC to read the disc, edit, convert to a conventional DVD, etc. if you're using this format.

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.

Camcorder "Freezes Up" during playback and/or during creation of thumbnails


I had the same problem - you are (as I was) turning off the camera too soon after you hit the stop button after recording a scene. Wait until the word "disc access" appears (about 5 seconds after you hit the stop button. This "marks" the end of the scene. I just don't know how to edit that scene out or if it will delete it out. I know after finalizing the disc that scene will pause for a while (10 to 20 seconds even) when you watch it through the DVD player to the TV.

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?
