Question about Samsung SC-DC164 DVD Camcorder

3 Answers

DVD Camcorder appears to have erased disc mid record!

My wife was recording with her Samsung SC-DC164 using a Mini DVD+R DL disc and there was about 10 minutes recording time left on the disc. The camcorder then stopped recording and gave the message "bad disc". When she ejected the disc and re-inserted she got the same message. When we attempted to play back the disc on 3 different dvd players and a computer, no luck. It appears as though there is nothing on the disc at all. Can anyone help us? We had just recorded our son's first Halloween and we fear it is lost. Thanks so much!

I've had the same problems with my Samsung SC-DC164 and Samsung gave the same BS answers. CD-RW didn't work any better. I can watch them on the TV, but no luck putting it on the computer or finalizing the disks.
I will never buy any Samsung products again.
Any other suggestions to get this thing working? Ihaven't found any solutions that work.

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?
