Viewing Discs on Samsung VP-DC161

I AM TRYING TO VIEW RECORDED DISCS ON MY DVD CAMCORDER BUT IT IS SAYING THAT THERE IS NO DISC IN THE CAMCORDER OR THERE IS A DISC ERROR. THERE IS CONTENT RECORDED ONTO THE DISC BUT IT WILL NOT ALLOW ME TO VIEW IT OR FINALISE IT.......ONLY FORMAT IT.
CAN YOU SUGGEST A WAY THAT I CAN CAPTURE THE CONTENT FROM THE DISC OR VIEW IT ON THE CAMCORDER AGAIN.
THE DISCS ARE DVD-RW.

LOOK FORWARD TO YOUR RESPONSE

    Same problem for me. I find that I am recording videos only to get the message that there is a Disc Error before I am able to finalize.

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

I CAN NOT TRANSFER FROM THE CAM TO COMPUTER I HAVE WINDOWS XP PROFESSIONAL AND MY COMPUTER SAYS THAT THE FORMAT ON DVD IS NOT SUPPORTED


Hi,

There are three ways of transferring the videos from the Camcorder to the Computer. One is by using the Picture Motion Browser Software, other by using the A/V, USB cable after finalizing the disc in the Camcorder and finally using the DVD-ROM Drive in the Computer after finalizing the disc. If you're trying to transfer using the 2nd and 3rd option, the the disc in the Camcorder should be finalized.

Also make sure that the disc is formatted in DVD-Video mode instead of DVD-VR mode. VR mode recorded discs can only be played back using a VR Compatible Software/Player or in the same Camcorder. DVD-Video mode recording will help you in playing the discs in all the Players and DVD Viewing Software.

I always recommend transferring the videos to the Computer using the supplied PMB Software.

Please check transferring steps and information from the link given below:

Sony DCR DVD108 not finalizing disc, lost data


I noticed that too with my "VR" (and NOT "Video") formatted disks. I don't think you can finalize the VR ones. Instead you have to use the Sony Import tool to grab the videos. If you are like me you probably remember using the import tool with Video formatted disks BEFORE finalizing them and it takes forever to copy them. They must be finalized to view on other devices, copy using the import tool quicker, etc., but VR formatted disks seem optimized for importing (and can be edited on the camcorder directly.

C:31:23 error on my sony digital handycam


i also don't think it has to do with taking the disc out since i did that with a new disc and it still works. i am unable however to view my data on the disc where the error 'movie recording disabled' appears--and it sounds like some of you can view the data. i'm wondering if my whole disc is bad?
