Optorite DD1205

I have two questions

  1. Does any body know where to get any firmware for this product as there is no website
  2. Every time i try and burn anything with my DVD writer i get the message "Write error at 32 (32) - Code 03 73 03 [Medium error, Power Calibration fail CD-burner is dirty)]

I am using Vso ConvertxtoDVD to burn and Datawrite Yellow discs DVD-R

Can anybody help me.

Hi,

Optorite doesn’t exist any more. Try rpc1.org - maybe you’ll find something useful there.

    See, if cleaning the drive helps. If not, throw away and buy a new drive.

I am using (…) Datawrite Yellow discs DVD-R
Maybe using other media helps.

that was one of the last drives they produced, and te shop I work at had some problems with ther drives near the end of Optorite’s life (the company), so it could be the drive is just failing. That nd since they went out of business they didn’t/can’t update ther firmware for ther drives, I’ve got a 12x DL drive that can’t read anything but 8x discs because all the 16x discs I put in come up as either 8x or 4x, I’m pretty happy about that.
