I’ve got a power calibration error when i start burning a DVD-R. It concerns Ritek G04 disks (Ritek is the brand) at 4X only. However they work at 2X. I tried another brand, TDK, which have worked each time at 4X. I tested with both Nero 22.214.171.124 and Nero 5.5.10.X. The firmware is up to date (1.08). Anyway i tried all of them, official and unofficial, since 1.05. Ritek G04 medias are supposed to be supported at 4X since this version actually.
I could burn my Ritek G04 at 4X only a very few times. Some people having the Nec 1300A have already reported the exact same thing as me. But for most people, there’s absolutely no problem. I don’t understand why it worked 2-3 times only and why TDK disks have no problem for burning at 4X. Yes, i could change the disks but TDK costs around 5 â‚¬ /media which is almost 4 times more expensive. Plus, Ritek G04 disks are reported compatible on almost 100 DVD players !
Would you think the issue is hardware ? I’m doubtful. I read somewhere the problem may be the power supply or the temperature. My burner is on secondary master (alone). About the system, all my drivers are updated, XP too. Everything is stable so i’m kinda lost there.
Any help appreciated.
