Power Calibration Error NEC ND-3550a

Hey everyone I’ve had power calibration errors with my NEC ND-3550a in the past, but updating the firmware had always fixed it. It is now the latest OEM firmware and I am beginning to get the error again regardless of media.

My question is which firmware should I upgrade to for the best results/stability? Thanks a lot!

That is wrong:

I 12:34:36 Write Speed: MAX

Get better media for such speeds.

Thanks for your reply, but even with verbatims at 1x I get the same error. Would a modified firmware help the problem?

Thanks again!

Try to clean the drive then.
