Power Calibration Error

I have an NEC NR-9300A cd-rw drive (which i cannot find on the NEC website to troubleshoot) and Im getting a “Power Calibration Error”, I cant find an update for the firmware, which I think might be the problem, can anyone help???

Those errors are usually due to IDE problems.
As a start:

  • Try replacing the IDE cable with a different (80 wire) one
  • Try using default MS IDE drivers instead of ones you are using now, if that doesn’t help update do you chipset’s newest ones available

That might be overkill, I blew it out and re-installed the driver, I think it might just have been dirt on the write head, things are cool & the gang now, looks like ill be purchasing head cleaners this weekend

IDE drivers? :smiley:
