I have tried using 2 different media types (cd brands). i have usd phillips and this other one. please help me!

Greetings!

I’ve been struggling with this “power calibration error” for several weeks now, and accidentally discovered something interesting yesterday.

First of all: The built in CDR on my Tecra M4 is a Matshita - and trying to burn with Nero 6 or 7 and this bad boy is the first time I ever encountered such an error. Ever. Tried at least four kinds of media - no difference (it’s been suggested by MANY people, to INCLUDE Nero tech support, to change media.) There is no updated firmware for this thing yet, and it’s brand new, so I know it’s not dirty.

So I tried purchasing a Plextor external DVD burner. The Cadillac of drives - and I got the exact same error.

However - since yesterday, I noticed that I only really got the error whenever I try to burn IMAGE files. This morning, I tried putting together multiple compilations of various kinds of files (just randomly from My Documents) and burned about 5 CDs at 48x on the Plextor without a single reported error. Then try to burn a .iso, and it fails.

Then I tried using Alcohol120% to burn some .iso files - burned about 5 without any trouble.

So - I seem to be able to use Nero 7 with my Plextor to burn anything except .iso files? And yet I can burn all the .iso I want in either the Plextor or the Matshita with Alcohol120% without any trouble.

So I’m thinking it’s a fairly isolated Nero problem . . .

Hope this gets the conversation rolling . . .

Wily

The NEC1100 is a poor CD writer, at least mine was. Try using DVD Decrypter or ImgBurn to burn the image. These 2 might do a better job.
