ND-2510A Power Calibration Error

Recommended Posts

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Several months ago I purchased a Mad-Dog DVD Burner model ND2510A.

It works great for burning CD's, DVD's and so forth, But when I started

to burn DVD+R DL all the programs that I use kept coming back telling

me an error has occured "POWER CALIBRATION ERROR"....

I have used Nero 6 and the new Nero 7, also IMGBURN and several other

programs. They all work fine when it comes to burning CD's and DVD's.

I don't understand what POWER CALIBRATION ERROR means. Can someone

please tell me and also how to correct the problem so I can burn DVD DL's.

Rimfire, alot of these errors can come from bad blank media, what type of media are you using? Also is the firmware for your DVD burner up to date? Post a log of the failed burn so the guys can see whats happening. :)

 

Also, because one brand of media burns well as a SL media, doesn't mean that the same brand will make good DL media. :ermm:

 

Here's a link to check for firmware updates for your burner....... http://forum.rpc1.org/portal.php

Ritek DL (which I assume is what you're using because they're the cheapest) and NEC drives don't mix too well - especially if you don't have the very latest firmware installed.

I've tried a couple of different media's. I've tried Verbatim and Memorex.

I also downloaded and installed the latest firmware for the ND-2510A...it's now 2F9.
