Power Calibration Area Error

Recommended Posts

When I first write an image to a Verbatim 2.4x dl disk I get no errors, everything OK.

When I immediately try to write another image to a Verbatim 2.4x dl disk, I get the above error. I think it is down to the DVD writer as when I wait a couple of hours everything seems OK. Do you think this is normal or is my DVD writer on its way out?

Sounds like your burner may be on the way out....

Could you suggest a make and model to replace my existing model?

Take a look at our drives and media section, there is a lot of info there about how different drives perform. I like Plextor and BenQ myself. :thumbup:

Guess it is my writer that is causing me problems.

Sony don't really make drives, they just rebadge them.

 

You're better off buying them from the original manufacturer.

Thanks for replies and help. I have visited the "drives and media section" but i'm now even more confused after reading reviews on most of the drives used in that section!

I am after a reliable writer for approx

Maybe someone will write a guide that you could look at, you might just be doing it wrong :chair::busted:

It's possible. CDs go in the tray shiny side up, don't they? :overmyhead:

Ohhhh, yeah right :whistling: ....I didn't know you needed that kind of help, I was thinking of a basic guide on how to use the program not a whole tut on how to use a PC. :unsure:

I have just burned a dvd+r dl disk with an image with my new drive with success. "So what" I hear you cry. It was burned onto a "mirror" dvd+r dl disk which came in a pack of ten of which nine were coasters using my sony burner. Moral of the story seems to be if you begin to get unusual errors with drives and disks that were working ok previously, try another drive! [Pack of 25 Verbatim
