Optimum Power Calibration Failed!

Recommended Posts

Did you try rebooting after turning it off? (actually cycle the power too so the drive resets properly)

 

All I can see in that mess of logs is it saying command sequence error - but that's probably caused by the failed burns before it.

Hi there!Tried different settings with reboots/cycling and still nothing works when trying to burn with this program.I was doing fine before but with this update I'm getting OPC error and if I change the settings,I get I/O error.Here is my latest log which I hope is not all messy.Thanks for your help!

Ah finally we get a decent log where the OPC command isn't sent and you don't get a 'command sequence error' error from the drive.

 

It doesn't matter which way you look at it, your drive has issues.

 

I tested a few TYG03's in my 716 yesterday and they all burnt fine (with 'Perform OPC' enabled and disabled) - might I add that this is my 2nd 716, the first broke and wouldn't burn anything. It looks like yours might have gone south too.

As much as I appreciate your work and your reply,I have to say I think you are wrong regarding this drive.So you know,I have no problem burning using the same drive and an external that won't work with IMGBurn either using half a dozen other burning programs.I also had no problems using IMG up to this latest update for some reasons.If my drive was the issue,why is it that I can use Nero,Alcohol 120%,Fireburner... without any errors?

Have you really tried burning with other programs since you started getting this error?

 

It's not the software that makes them up, the drive itself errors out and ImgBurn simply relays the error message to you.

 

I cannot force your drive to NOT error out, it's impossible.

 

Seriously, if the other programs will still burn that exact same media then I'm at a loss. All it could be is the Incremental / DAO 'Write Type' option in the settings - but that shouldn't be a make or break choice, they should both work.

Hey LUK,

 

I've got a question.

 

Can you please explain the process of Optimum Power Calibration, for the sake of knowledge.

 

Thanks.

From my point of view, it's 1 command that gets/doesn't get (depending on the value of the 'Perform OPC Before Write' option in the settings) sent to the drive, that's it. The drive deals with it in the way it see's fit.

 

As Google would probably tell you, OPC is where the drive uses a special area on the disc to try and figure out the optimum power level/setting for the laser when burning onto the media.

 

When it's off, the burn sequence is identical to 2.3.2.0 and all the other versions before it.

 

If you'd like to see what the command is, read the MMC6 manual available (free) from www.t10.org and look at the 'SEND OPC INFORMATION' command.

Hi and welcome to the forum, mingozze! :)

 

Try to disable the OPC in the settings.
