Hi , Your going to have to Hard reset it , I believe if you hold down the power and play mode buttons at the same time it should kick in for you. Google it I had a similar issue with one of my cameras about a month ago but its all good. Just about ant device has a hard reset combination , good luck

SOURCE: Disc error problems - Samsung VP-DC172W

The problem i think is from the Camera. But if you are a bit technical and have a T.V tuner card in your P.C what you can do is connect your camera to the pc tv tuner card with the A.V wire provided. With the software of your tuner card (if you don't have download Ulead Video studio or buy it) you can view and record your videos to your hardisk, then you can burn them to a DVD disk. if you have any questions you can e-mail me on [email protected]

Hi,

Are you using the AC adapter when trying to finalize? You cannot finalize using battery power only.

Link to your manual:

Canon DC210 Manual

(What format discs are you using?)

Instructions for finalizing begin on page 61.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for using Fixya.

I have a samsung vp-dc171w mini dvd recorder. I was told at the time of purchase that the disc would replay in a dvd player but none of mine play it. Is there an adaptor or something needed for it to play...


If your using DVD-RW make sure you format it in video mode. Do your recordings then when you want play them back on a dvd player you have to finalise the disk in the camcorder first.
If you want to continue recording you will have to un finalise the disk.

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

what ever size disc your using simply dont record the whole disc, example if you are recording on a 30min dvd-r only record 28mins then finalising will not be a problem.

Have you finalised the disc ? Go into the menu and where you format the disc there is an option to finalise. It should then play on your laptop. Hope that helps ;)
