Ripping Samsung VP-DC171 Camcorder On XP? Answered

It has no way of connecting to the computer.I can play the discs in DVD form in my mom's Vista laptop and a DVD player,but it shows up as a blank disc on my computer.I tried a ripping program,but it comes out blank and gives an error halfway through.How can I get the files off the disc?

Sounds like hardware compatibility with the disk/disk drive. I've had that problem with one of those samsung 'millenium falcon' looking cam-disc-corders before. Try using the 'finalize' or 'finish disk' function on the camcorder...

Can you rip them with the laptop, then move the files over a network to the desktop computer?

that is really...really awkward. Sorry I have no other solutions than hooking up as a video player then capturing the video. I hate dvd camcorders.
