Need help with power calibration error dvd

#1

Hi, I’m new to burning DVD’s. I have been having problems burning CD’s and DVD’s burner is NEC DVD_RW ND-2500A. I read a posting on this forum where someone else was having same problem but I don’t want to try things I don’t understand like firmware as I don’t want to mess up my computer. I did remove powerDVD and the burner started working again with not problem. But I wanted to burn downloaded TV programs to DVD that were avi files so I bought the NeroVision Express plug in to encode/decode and convert files to MPeg2. That worked fine but when it tried to burn to DVD-R I get the Power calibration error again. So I burned files to folder on hard disk until I can get this solved. I get failed errors when trying music CD’s too. :bow: Please help me. Thank you.

We appreciate the problem is about the operation of your DVD burner, but before offering help we need to know whether there are any copyright issues with these files that you’ve downloaded.

I don’t think so, I downloaded bit torrent of Supernatural which I have recorded when watching on TV also for my own use only. However, There is no copywrite issue when I try to burn music CD’s with my own playlists which was working fine then suddenly it would not burn any disc. Then I removed powerDVD and it started working again then I downloaded the conversion plug in so I could make DVD’s I could watch on my televsion instead of computer and it stopped working again. There must be something I need to adjust in the computer? Not being a computer expert I don’t know how to really read and understand error logs but I kept one and here it is if someone can use it to help me. Thanks.

Here is error log:
