I have a Plextor CD-R PX-W4012A and lately i am unable to burn any CD's. I have consulted several forums in the net and it seems that my problem it is a bit comum. Here it is:
First, i started to receive a message of "power calibration error";
Then, upgraded the firmware of my Plextor from version 1.02 to version 1.05 and the messages that appear now are "unspecified recorder error" or other times is "no seek complete".
I have followed the suggestion to change the CDR media that I was using - Verbatim CDR - but that doesn't helped also.
Finally, and very strange is the fact that I have CDR Identifier 1.63 installed but it detectes no CDROM drive neither CDRW drive and I have both (apart from the mentioned Plextor, I have a Toshiba DVD-ROM SD-M1612).
I really do not know what to do at this moment, but maybe should I go back to the vendor and try to repair the CD lens?
Just to help you, I have Win XP Pro SP1 installed, with an AMD XP 2000+ CPU and an Asus A7N8X mobo updated with the latest drivers. Also, my ASPI layer is version 4.71/4.60 (i.e., some files are v4.71 and others are v4.60) and I have Nvidia unified drivers v2.03 installed.
ANY suggestions appreciated, please!
