Since I didn’t want to hijack the firmware thread any longer (and the problem seems to keep on going), I thought I’d start a new thread which hopefully can get to the bottom with this.
My Nec 4551 with fw Z2 has stopped burning dvd’s correctly, since I re-installed XP (SP2).
I’ve tried Nero Express (LF version), Dvd d and ImgBurn but they all report the “Power Calibration Error”.
At first, as suggested by chef, I tried to dermine if there was a problem with bad medium. I therefore tried different media, all Verbatims (dvd-r 16x and 8x medium/ dvd+r 16x/8x versions/ dvd+rw 4x. MID MCC003/002 etc). None of them burned (about 20 coasters), and they mostly died after/shortly after the lead in (see NecLog 1).
Last night I uninstalled Daemon Tools (4.03) and then took out the power cord, after turning off the computer.
This morning I checked the cables/jumpers, before turning it on.
And…it all worked perfectly for several burns!
Then I installed Daemon again (the old one 3.47 since I had that before the XP installation), and on the first burn after that…it didn’t work again (see NecLog 2).
Of course I thought…aha, Daemon must be the “bad guy” in all this, but even after I uninstalled just now the burns fail.
So what do you think, is Daemon fuxxing things up…or is it something else?
All help is appriciated!
