Write Error on Samsung SC-DC173U

When pressing the record button, it says "Write Error. To recover disk, press OK!"

We can't find the "OK button" Where is that?

We've had nothing but problems with this camera. One disc won't finalize. We've lost so much footage from our son's first year of life. Boo.

    The Samsung DC173 was a bargain but for the pain of losing previous memeorise and crashing when you need to use it - i realky wish I ahdnt bothered.

    Have tried different disks, RW and R have tried TDK, and others.

    Get a variety of errors - Blue screen of death BSOD occurred today and had to remove battery. Write errors, disks unable to finalise, disks that just wont play after finalising them, jumps in the footage - all so annoying I cant say I have even got to the point of rating the picture / sound quality against other brands.

    Also dont seem to get the widesceen promised and have tried differnet settings - but that is least of worries.

When you plug the camera via USB, it creates a drive on your file system. Just open the files explorer and search for the new drive. If you are looking for the camera wizard, follow this link to activate the AutoPlay again

I think i just figured it out. Somewhere else on the web clued me in that the disc got messed up (don't know how). I put in a new disc and it works. Other disc still doesn't though.

"write error, to recover disc, please restart"


what discs are you using as they need to be compatible with the recorder, some discs are one time recording others are + or - and some are rewritable, there is also settings for format that have to be set for the discs.

Disk wont finalize samsung sc-dx103


Samsung support just told me that there has to be some space left on the disc to finalize it. In other words if you fill the disc with too much video, the disc won't be able to write the necassary info on the disc to finalize it. Support told me you needed 10MB to finalize. He also told me to leave 7- 10 minutes of free space which is ridiculous because the disc only records 20 minutes. I have complained to Samsung about this ommission from the manual and that the camcorder should know to leave enough space to finalize the disc.>

Formatting the disk


Yes, the mini DVD-RW will work on this camera. When you insert the disk and power on the camcorder (with the mode on DISC), the camcorder will try to read the disk, and if it isn't formatted yet, the LCD display will offer you the option to format it (in VR or Video mode). Simply select and click to format the disk
