I own a Lite-On DVD Burner 401S (S0G). I recently burnt some Philips DVD+RW 4x and some Fuji DVD+R 2,4x without problems. No I tried to burn some Platinum (RICOHJPN) DVD+R 4x and I get a “Power Calibration Error” all the time with Nero 220.127.116.11 and Nero 18.104.22.168.
I also have a NEC 1100A DVD burner available and tried the same Platinum DVD+R 4x Discs - burnt without a problem!
Has anyone an idea what could be wrong? I tried also different firmwares S0C & S0E - but with no other results.
I also wanted to let you know, that in the newest issue of the German magazine c’t 22/03 (magazin fÃ¼r computer technik) there is an articel about DVD blanks (S.134ff). They compared the results of KProbe against calibrated professional scans from a laboratory called “Audiodev” and only about two thirds of the PI SUM 8 results were equal. One third was extremly different so they concluded that KProbe is not suitable to judge the burning quality.
This agrees with my opinion, because if I do some scans with KProbe on the same burnt blank I get different results.
