Hi. I just registered to this forum because I feel that it is the right place to ask for help, and this is the place that gives me the biggest hope of getting help.
I just recovered my computer from a Windows crash, and after having everything back to normal, I wanted to burn a CD.
B.C. (before crash) I was running Nero 126.96.36.199 which worked like a charm. But now, I decided to try out 188.8.131.52.
Well, trying to burn a CD, the burn process skips to 6% immediately, and then it got nowhere. After a little while, it reported “Power Calibration Error”.
I tried different settings. Different burn-speed. Nothing helped.
Then I figured I might flash the driver into a newer version! “That might help!” I thought.
Well, searching around, I found v.1.04 (old was 1.01) and flashed using MktWinFlash.
Now, it still skips to 6%, but then nothing happens. If I try to abort the process, it says “Aborting Process” and then does nothing. The writer is highly active but gets nowhere. Reboot solves this.
Then I figured I might try the “Good olÂ´184.108.40.206”. But, to my sad observation, it didn’t help the least.
Now, I have run out of ideas and am looking for expert help. Therefore, I turn to You!
So, in short:
-LG 32x burner, GCE-8320B, FW V.1.04
-Used to be “Power Calibration Error”, now nothing.
-Have flashed AND gone back to older Nero which worked fine B.C.
-Nothing I have done helps.
-Using HQ disks.
So, any bright ideas out there? You are my last resort. The warranty passed just some month ago, so if nothing helps, I will be going onto the market for a new burner. Which leads to:
-What new burner would you recommend?
I have looked into them before, and I think that NEC have good DVD-burners for good prices, and they seem to perform well. Don’t know if I need a DVD-burner, but I feel that the difference in price between CD-DVD-burners are so small that it wouldn’t really matter.
Thanks on advance,
