Hey everyone, I’ll cut straight to the chase:
Few days ago I moved my pc, then formatted it with WinXP x64. Everything works great apart from the dvd recording, where I cannot pass the first mark and get ‘Power Calibration Error’ all the time. I have a Nec 7173-A, and casually burn TY 16x +R disks. I have burned about 30 of them in the past without a single problem, as well as couple more brands.
Here is the things I tried, but didnt help me:
-Disabled IMAPI cd burning service.
-Tried Nero 7, Nero 8, Roxio 10. All the same problem.
-Tried different media, TY 16x +R (4 disks), Fujifilm 4x -R, TY Premium 4x +R.
-Opened up the drive’s case a bit and lightly cleaned the lens. (Couldnt open it fully and didnt want to force it.)
-Flashed the drive to the latest firmware by Dee (with bitsetting), then flashed it to the latest original firmware.
-Tested the drive on a different pc with x86 XP, same problem.
One more note, it burns CD’s no prob and reads ofc.
I have all latest windows updates.
Please, help me if you think I might have missed something. Even though drives are piss cheap nowadays, I’d rather save every penny at this period of time. Any advice will be highly appreciated.
