Question about Samsung VP-DC161 DVD Camcorder
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
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

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.
