ImgBurn stuck at Writing LeadIn or Power Calibration Area Error

Recommended Posts

I have tried multiple times to burn Xbox 360 games on to my Double-Layer discs but to no avail. It's either stuck at Writing LeadIn or Power Calibration Area (Retry nr.# of 30). I even use Verbatim DVD+R DL 8x discs and tried to run it on Safe Mode. I personally think that my problem is with my laptop's drive, because I also hear weird and almost like clicking, scrapping or hitting noises coming from it when you first insert a disc or when it's attempting to burn. I haven't attempted yet to burn another type of disc to see if the problem isn't just with double layer DVDs yet. How can I solve my issue?

Yes, I’d say it’s an issue with your drive.

Also, you’re trying to burn one of those oversized images and you can only do that with certain drives.

These days, you’ll need to buy a ‘plus’ model of one of the Vinpower Digital offerings (Plextor/ pioneer/optiarc).

It's going back a good few years now, but only real LiteOn iHAS drives were capable of burning them nicely - and only really on the MKM-003-00 discs.

The Vinpower Digital 'plus' drives have been designed (firmware modified appropriately) to support it. You'd have to get one of those and put it in a suitable USB enclosure.
