So i bought 2 100pks of 8x DVD+R Printable Hub Taiyo Yuden’s that i’ve had nothing but problems with. I’ve tried them on a Lite-On LH-20A1S and LH-20A1H and both times i keep getting a “Retry Failed - Power Calibration Area Error”. Sometimes it will come through and burn. But fuck this is annoying. Is it that these drives are just crap or what? I bought both of them from Newegg…
Some steps i’ve tried to make sure it WASNT the drive was…
- Buying a new Power Supply (600w Kingwin).
- Only DVD drive is connected to power cable.
- Took PCI cards out to take stress on power supply.
- Upgraded firmware on LH-20A1S to 9L08 from http://forum.rpc1.org/dl_result.php?kaj=1&isces=LH-20A1S but that ended up bricking the drive. Now it won’t read anything i put in it. Should have known better since http://us.liteonit.com/us/index.php?option=com_wrapper&Itemid=153 only has firmware up to 9L02.
So any help would be greatly appreciated as to why this crap keeps happening.
