No problems here

  • Summary: I do not know why some people are having, or have had problems with this Camcorder. I have never had a single error message. I simply put in a CD and hit the record button. It may have been a problem with a batch that was defective much like the pre-orders of new game consoles. Mine has always worked perfectly.

Worth the money

  • Summary: I bought this camcorder overa year now and it works great. I never use the disk part because the max capacity is 1.2 Gb, while for less physical space i can us an HCSD card up to 16 Gb. And i figure the disk will use more power to operate. I gave it 4 stars because in darker scenarios it needs a light for work properly.

I hate this camcorder

Bonnie Corbett, Amazon
13 January 2011
  • Summary: I have been unable to this camera. I load new disc, format, record, shut off go to record again and get the message disc error. At that point i can not finalize or view anything i have recorded. I used 3 different disc's and the same thing happens each time. Samsung customer service did not help I was told to switch from the rw to the r. my point is if it does not work with the rw as it says it will right on the camera then something is wrong.

OK...

  • Summary: This camera is not the best. However, it has a sleek look and does it's job. I've never gotten the disk error before, but in my opinion, its better to just stick with the SD card. Make sure you jump for at least a class 6 card with HD capabilities, otherwise, the SD quality is awful. Personally, if you want a cheep cam, I'd go with a Flip.

DISC ERROR

joseph B, Amazon
28 December 2010
  • Summary: Every time I load a new disc, after a few minutes, the "write error" comes up. I've tried to clean the camcorder using Dust Off and the same thing happens. I've no idea what to do, I thought of smashing it on a rock and forget about it. Samsung SC-DX205 Hybrid DVD & Flash Memory Camcorder w/34x Optical Zoom .

DISC ERROR!!! UGGGGGH!

LISADOESTAXES, Amazon
21 December 2010
  • Summary: I HAVE THE SAME COMPLAINTS AS THE OTHER REVIEWS I'VE READ. WE'VE TAPED SO MANY IMPORTANT EVENTS ONLY TO HAVE SOME SORT OF ERROR COME UP ON THE SCREEN WHILE WE'RE TRYING TO FINALIZE THE DVD. DRIVES ME CRAZY!! ONCE THAT HAPPENS, DISC IS GARBAGE AND MEMORIES ARE LOST FOREVER. ANOTHER PROBLEM WE HAVE IS THE "DISC ERROR" COMING UP ON A BRAND NEW DISC. WE'VE HAD THE CAMERA FOR 6 MONTHS NOW AND TRIED DIFFERENT THINGS TO FIX THE PROBLEMS. NOTHING HELPS.

Low Price, Decent Camera

J. Berarducci "JB", Amazon
8 December 2010
  • Summary: My review will be short. Basically the camera has good ease of use and has an OK picture on the CDs. The downer is that the CD length is only around a half hour. For the cards, the digital quality appears much better and not grainy except for low lit times. Overall it was a good buy at the price.
