NEC-ND 2510A Burner keeps failing... getting frustrated

I upgraded my firmware to 2.19 that I got from here:

I used binflash too. My dvd’s are still failing within nero with power calibration error. I’m getting frustrated every time it gives me this error. Anyone know what else I could do?

Time to replace the burner, perhaps?
I’m guessing you’re trying to burn 16x media?

Yes, I am using 16x media. I guess I’ll just have to replace the burner. Was hoping that would be my last option.

Would upgrading it to a different firmware help any?

The drive is really old. Time to upgrade.
