Question about Samsung SCDC163 Camcorder
I have a Samsung camcorder DC171.
Have endless problems formatting discs.
Fuji discs (-R) could be formatted and finalised but unable to play on DVD player.
Likewise, Sony (double layer -R) formatted and finalised , unable to play on DVD player.
One sony disc was successfull formatted and finalised and able to play.
Have rung up for technical help which was of no help.
I guess the DVD player that you are using is incompatible of playing DVD -R
Please check if it can.

Windows 7 allows you to format DVD without the need to install a third-party utility.
Just 5 easy steps to format DVD-RW in windows 7!
Step 1. Insert the DVD-RW disc into a DVD burner drive. Make sure that your drive has the ability to write DVD-RWs, otherwise, you won't be able to format, reformat, or write new data the disc.
Step 2. Format the existing data. If the DVD-RW has data on it, you may first need to erase what's there. Click "Start"->"Computer". then right click on the DVD-RW icon. In the toolbar, click "Erase this disc" and follow the instructions.
Step 3. Access the "Burn files to disc" window. This appears when you either insert a blank disc or double-click the blank disc in the computer window. If no window appears automatically after erasing the disc contents, eject and re-insert the now blank disc into your drive to prompt this window to appear.
Step 4.Select the format you want to use. You have two options when it comes to formatting a DVD-RW in Windows: "Like a USB flash drive" (a.k.a. Live File System) or "With a CD/DVD player" (a.k.a. Mastered). What you choose depends on how you intend to use the disc.
Step 5.Finish the formatting process. Once you've selected your formatting method, the drive will prepare the disc. This may take a few moments. After it's finished, you'll be able to start adding files to the disc.
