PLEXTOR CD-R PX-W8432T "power calibration error"

hey guys

i have some movies wich dont fit on a basic 80 min cd

Ive bought some 100 min 878 MB cds

i know how to burn them with overburning

but when the overburn starts my nero says power calibration error.

I cant find many info on what this means

does anyone knows whats causing this? or how i can fix this?

thx in advance

GRooVeZ welcome to our forum :slight_smile:

This problem is usually media related. Try using other media (just go and get another CD of such capacity) and see if you get the same error.

hmmz

im using Masterbit Pro 52 x 100min \ 878 mb

and i know a friend of me who is using them, and they work well

im from europe, Belgium

wich type of cd’s should i use?

thx

when i make a new compilation

should i make a “CD-ROM (ISO)” or "Audio CD3 or “EXTRA CD”

im burning a .avi off 770 MB

also no multisession rite?

and should i use Iso level 1 or 2?
Mode 1 or 2?
check joliet?

omg lol

i tried another medium

just a standard fuji disk (700MB) :confused:

guess what; hes burning rite now …

how is this possible? on a 100 min disk i get errors, and on a 80 min disk hes doing the burn?

strange

so howmany MB can i actually put on a 700 MB disk?

the most ive burned is ±735 with finalize.
but now im burning 770 with overburn

is this normal?

That’s because your Fuji discs are probably way better quality than the Masterbit discs. I think the maximum amount of data you can squeeze on a 700MB disc is around 708~710MB with overburning. This depends on the used media though. 770MB will never fit when burning a normal data compilation. You can burn 770MB of audio though to a 700MB CD-R disc, this is because audio needs less error correction information per sector.

With Plex-8432T(yes, still use it :slight_smile: ) u can overburn till to 89.4 min, so it"s useless to buy 100min CDR"s, just 90min ones is enough. Set Nero to overburn to around 89min and should be Ok.

An average CD of 82’ contains 720 MB of data or 827 MB of audio ( TY - approx. 15 MB more ).
