Tonight I tried to back up a back up so i used nero 6.3 where as i usually use DVDXCopy.... to make a long story short, nero rips the dvd, then when I insert a blank disk to write the image I get the power calibration error. I did a bit of research and came across this.......... decided what the hell and i tried.... attempted to copy again and bingo....worked like a charm. I am using Fuji +R RICOHJPNR01 and a NEC2500 with Herrie's 1.08FW
this might be some help to all you guys out there which are having problems with this power calibration error.what i know is that the cd burning engine which comes with xp was developed by adaptec (i might be wrong so please dont hold me to it).so heres what to do and most of your problems hopefully will be solved.this is the easiest way to tell everyone.
