Cant burn DVD only CDROMs

Hi,
I have a problem burning DVDs. My ASUS-0804P +/-DVD burner can burn CDROMS with Nero6.6, but no DVDs. Pls find attached a Log message for your ref…
Can you pls tell me what is the problem? I already submitted the DVD RW to ASUS for testing, but it was working properly.

  • While making and buring a DVD slide show with NERO, the app confirmed successful burn, but the DVD was empty.
  • While compiling a data DVD, error message “power calibration problem” appeared. (see attached Log file)
    Thanks for yr help,

Sense Key: 0x03 (KEY_MEDIUM_ERROR is almost always caused by incompatible or faulty media. suggest changing brands, or +R for -R [ or vice versa ], and/or a firmware update if available.

:slight_smile: Great thanks a lot…firmware update was the prob as well as faulty media!
