Sorry for jumpping into this thread in the middle. But I think it fits my problem very well.
I have a NEC AD-7170A which works perfectly with Sony discs and Winmedia discs. But it just won’t work with Philips discs.
I had a similar problem with Philips discs (DVD-R) more than one year ago, but with another computer. I ended up returning it to the store. Now I got a new computer, new OS, and new driver, so I thought to give it another try. Still, the same problem. I think there is a mismatch between the burners and the discs. And the problem is more likely in the media side in my view.
This time, I tried to burn it with Nero 8 at very speed, 4x, 6x, 8x, 12x, 16x, 18x, 20x, and tried very size of data, 4488, 4482, 4468. None of them working. I am wondering if need to “fix” my driver or just return the disc to the store to avoid future problem if the data can’t be burned properly.
The error message is:
“Power Calibration Error / Optiarc DVD RW AD-7190A…”
