My beloved 716A recently started throwing power calibration errors - but I suspect (read hope and pray) it may also be related to a bad batch of media and not the poor thing dying.
I read this post on rmainfo and decided I would see how well the old warhorse has lasted.
But when I look at his example and mine the letters are different after what I assume are the burn totals and I wondered if this means anything?

Does the fact it will throw up errors on 5 disks then burn the next 10 on the spindle make it more likely to be the media or the drive - I’ve never had a plex die on me before so am a little lost.
