Recently I bought the new drive Optiarc AD-7173A Black and installed it into my system. I was hoping to have a better drive then my previous on NEC ND-4551A, but right now I’m not sure. Right after I installed the drive into my system, I updated its firmware to LD 1-O2 with the hope it would work better. Then I tried to burn some disks. First two dead disks ended up with power calibration errors were TDK DVD+R 16x disks with YUDEN000 T03 media code. Then I tried to burn TDK DVD+RW 4x disk with RICOHJPN W11 media code and got the same power calibration error trying to format the disk…
Nothing was changed in the computer, just removed old drive and installed the new one on its place. My power supply is 350W, so I don’t think it’s lack of power… Cable and the rest was not changed after drive replacement (from NEC ND-4551A to Optiarc AD-7173A).
Thank you very much in advance!
