1300A Power Callibration Error

vbimport

#1

I have been using my 1300A for a while now with NEC’s 1.0b fw since it is fairly old and no new private stuff has been made. I have never been able to burn at 4x even though it is advertised as such. I have tried three types of high quality media (all dvd-r) that were supposed to be supported and were obviously capable of burning at 4x. I just got some new firmware from a Japanese site, 1.0c, they are calling it. This is giving me the same error, ‘Power Callibration Error’ (and lots of coasters). I can burn fine at 2x and when I set it at 2.4x it works but never goes higher that 2.1x. I have tried using Nero 6.3.1.6 and the latest version of DVD Decrypter.

AMD 3000+ on an Asus A7N8X
512 Mb PC3200
Geforce fx5700
Maxtor 160 Gb HD

As suggested by the posting guidelines, providing the exact media code would be helpful, as right now, you have not provided enough information for anyone to answer your question.

Pardon Me.

Drive won’t do a PI/PIF scan. Info tool won’t save for some reason… the standalone or in Nero itself. I was really just wondering if anyone has seen/fixed this problem before.?
