"POWER CALIBRATION ERROR" with NEC AD 7173

#1

I bought an MDA DVD-R miniDVD. When I trying to burn I always get “POWER CALIBRATION ERROR”. Strange was it when I burned one of those miniDVD but the rest won´t work. What should I do? What is the newest driver/flash for for NEC AD 7173? Maybe that will work.

Use better media.

MDA is not known for quality.

Could you post the medicode of the dvd-r.

Use DVDIdentifier or Nero CD/DVD Speed to retreive mediacode.

1.01 seems to be latest version for 7173A

I have 1.02 version for my 7173A.

Here is the MEDIACODE

Use better media.

VDSPMS…AB 01 is not reliable media.
