Can't Burn CD-R, Burner Problem? Please help

#1

First of all, my apologies if I’m posting in the wrong forum. I’m new here and need some help.

I cannot seem to burn anything onto my CDs. Now, it used to be okay, but that was about 6 months back since I’m usually overseas and do not use the computer much. This week, I came home and wanted to burn some movies onto some blank CD-Rs, but it doesn’t work. With Nero 6, I always get stuck at 3%. The drive makes all sorts of spinning noises (repititively), but there is no extra progress. I tried burning with Ashampoo Movie Shrink & Burn 2 (Trial Version), but the same problem occurred, causing me to suspect either the hardware or the CD.

I searched for some information before this and changed one of my DMA settings , but it didn’t help. I tried Nero CD/DVD Speed, but it couldn’t get the test started too.

My burner is Lite-On’s LTR-523275. I’m pasting the Log I got from Nero (after 10 minutes of fruitless burning):

Can’t anyone help :frowning:

After reading your log i see that there is a “power calibration error”, which is usually caused by poor media or a psu problem. http://ww2.nero.com/enu/FAQs_Products_NeroBurningROM_Error-Messages.html
