Video not found after finalizing disc on Samsung SC-DC164 DVD Camcorder
Just purchased a Panasonic DVD-R to record my daughter's first Christmas Carol. I used the Samsung SC-DC164 camcorder. The manual book said that the disc needs to be finalized before inserting the disc into the DVD player,so i did and it was saying "finalizing" and then "complete". So I took the disc out and tried to play it on my DVD player but it reads "disc error". I even tried it on a PC, but no luck. Is there any other way that I could retrieve my video from the disc since the disc is stated that the video cannot be erased since it's a DVD-R? Please help.

sometimes the disks in the camcorder can get break down. its known problem is no working for long time. if everything on the disc are important for you pls go to service. dont touch anything that you dont know.
have a good day.
okay so i have founnd the solution happily and i am actually finalizing my disk right now!!! woooohoo plug the camera in and use the remote that it came with to navigate through the menu!! the finalize button is now able to function!! I hope this works for u!!
I've been trying to find out the same information. We went to disney this year lost 3 full dvd's worth. Called samsung all they told me was to use memorex mini-dvd's. Thanks alot ):
Anyways hopes this helps a little.
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.
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?
