Ive been having problems with my new DVD Burner. I have managed in the 4 wks Ive had it to burn 100x CDr’s without one coaster at all. I even managed to burn a single DVD-r with 3.5Gb of data from my hard drive. But from every other attempt since to use the drive to burn DVD’s, they all come back as failed attempts.
The first time I tried and it failed, I was running it on simulate, so i wouldnt ruin the disk at all (Or so i thought). But for some reason, whenever i put the same disk in the burner to try again, it keeps making a noise from the unit like its seeking the disk, and cant find it. If i insert a brand new blank disk, it picks it up and attempts to burn, but then comes up with “Power calibration failed”. This is a pain in the arse, so maid sure i had the latest Firmware update and the unit. I was running SOJ but i upgraded it to SON. I even checked my ASPI Drivers are ok. They are. Im getting prettty fed up now, because as I said before, every disk i put into it even though it sees it first time, it wont ever see it again. not even to tell me the type of media etc. Can anyone shed any light on this whatsoever?
Please guys, you seem to be really helpfull at times, this is one of them times!.. Cheers muchly.
