Dvd Writer not Writing Dvds

i dont know if this goes here but ima give it a try. ive been burning movies on this burner for years now and ive never had a problem been usings the same disks (crappy memorex and maxell) cheap brands but they have been working fine til today and i even barrowed a few different disks from a friend and all become coasters its making me mad ive read alot of the forums about this same prob and nothing has worked for me so i thought i would let you guys see if im missing something or its a dead Drive it burns music cds data cds and data dvds still but i get a “Power_Calibration_Error” and a “Invalid field in command” error with this nero log

P.S. i see people saying to edit some part of this out but i dont know which part so heres the whole log thanks very much for your time and help
oh and ive got 2 other dvd writers that when i put in this comp do the same thing now but they but in other comps

@ Vampireshadows,

Welcome to the Forum

Both your total available Physical Memory: 445MB and Free Physical Memory: 131MB are insufficient for effective and efficient copying of DVD Movies. Also your total percentage of Memory In Use is excessively high.

You might be content in using known poor quality problematic (‘Crappy’) Media but it should be noted the most probable cause of Power Calibration Errors is using poor quality problematic Media. Suggest reviewing the below referenced Web Page Link concerning Power Calibration Errors ->

http://www.cd-burner-help.com/power-calibration.htm

Regards,
bjkg

Physical memory : 445MB (456264kB)
Free physical memory: 131MB (134208kB)
Memory in use : 70 %

i dont understand how to fix this i have 2 512 sticks in my comp so it should show more then 445? and the part about free memory how would i got about freeing up more then 131mb and is there any way to reduce the % that is being used? ive got some JVC disks and i’ve tried them too and i just ran a cd cleaner through the drive and its still giving the same error it gets to 1% and fails but it isnt making coasters at the moment with the JVC disks

How about some system specs, comp, cpu, OS, etc.
