DVD Burning help needed please. (Lite-On DVD RECORDER DVD+-R RW)

[qanda]This thread is about the Lite-On DVD RECORDER DVD±R RW. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]Hi, I would greatly appreciate any help that you could offer. I have two Lite-on dvd burners. They have worked just fine in the past for backing up movies, but not so much anymore. I’ve updated the firmware for both and have tried different media (verbatim and memorex) but keep getting “Write Failed” messages. It won’t work with Nero, DVD Shrink, Clone DVD, NTI DVD Maker, or anything else I try. Below is my error log for DVD Shrink, followed by the Nero log. Thanks in advance.

Oh yeah, it’s also saying “Power calibration error”. Any ideas?
