The semaphore timeout period has expired refers to the fact that the driver is no longer communicating with the device and failed. Each time a CD Burner is setup for a CD Burning session the burner hardware will perform a 15 step power test to determine the OPC for a Blank Media Disc, OPC meaning Optimum Power Calibration. This test also takes place during the CD Burning process so the CD Burner can determine the best burn speed and method for the disc; this test is called 'Running Optimum Power Calibration'. Although the test is performed by the hardware of the CD Burner, the device initializes the CD Burning Software for the test to take place. This is one reason why your software may report the "Power Calibration Error" or ?Calibration Error Full?. With Power Calibration errors they can be caused by different factors and sometimes difficult to locate, especially if the errors are at random. Below are the known factors that will cause the Power Calibration Errors and how to check each factor, it is important that each point is considered if wanting to get to the bottom of the error. Power Calibration Errors can occur when OPC or ROPC tests for the media disc so the condition of the disc, brand of disc and even the firmware for the CD Burner can be the cause for the errors occurring. A device such as a CD Burners can have different problems if there is a power consumption issue with the system and the Power Calibration Error is just one of those problems. If using either an internal or external CD Burner make sure to disconnect all other devices, except the hard drive and Burner, before attempting to burn a disc. Double check all cables for any faults and if possible test with a 2nd Data Cable. It is also advisable to disconnect the power connection for the CD Burner and test with a spare connector. If you have no trouble with other discs, use them and put to one side the lightscribe, other than that try the burner in another pc or with other burning software, as you can see it's quite ridiculous what problems burners can create.

make sure all the cords are hooked up to it properly in the computer case and if they are hooked up tight and none are loose make sure you have music/dvd codecs on your computer get a codec pack and then it should write a cd like normal for a codec pack just go to google and download one doesnt matter what one

SOURCE: hp 1040e dvd writer plays cd's but not dvd's.

What brand DVD's are you using? Its best to use the same brand discs as your burner. This is because in the design and testing stage they are using their own brand of discs to test them. Some other brand discs may be thicker or thinner and not read correctly. The "blank" disc may have already have been written on. Make sure the Nero software is loaded on your computer that came with it.

I just got a Windows 8.1 PC. Can I get drivers to work with my old DC3000 Writer on that OS?


When you connect something to an USB port for the first time, don't hope to much. You have to be sure the computer has the correct software to recognise the hardware and can work with it. From Windows 7 and up, for all hardware that is certified with Microsoft, you can download the drivers from Microsoft. Lots of hardware is recognised when connected and will initiate a download from Microsoft. But not all hardware will do so and not all hardware is compatible (same as not certified by Microsoft from Windows 7 and up) with the new operating systems.

Most things that worked fine with Windows XP and or Vista, can fail with Windows 7 and 8, because the factory that made the hardware in the first place does not ask for certification with Microsoft for their old Hardware. They only spend time and money to get their new hardware certified on the new operating systems. So to make sure your hardware is compatible with the OS. Check the manual and find out, what you have to do so it will work on your computer.
If your device was working on a USB2 port, it also should work on an USB3 port, on the same computer. But don't expect another speed, because the slowest part decides the speed.

I'm using a Dell Inspiron 1300 Laptop with an NEC DVD+-RW ND-6650A CD/DVD reader/writer. Also using Showbiz DVD2 to burn backups of VHS tapes I can create single layer DVDs fine. However, when I try to...


how long is the whole process of burning the dual layer dvd's
your computers hard drive might be getting to hot
try blowing out all of the dust from your laptop computers keyboard using a fine air blower from an air compressor making VERY sure there is no MOISTURE in the lines.
dust causes static which causes lots of unforseen problems with a computer and its parts
also you might buy a laptop usb 3 fan cooler pad just to keep things cool/er
you might check the leads ((motherboard to hard drive)) they might be bad/faulty
hope this helps

How do I get the drivers needed to make the DVD Movie Write DC3000 work on Vista?


HP does not make a Vista driver for your device. Here is their driver page for you unit:
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?os=228&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&sw_lang=&product=327406

When you plug it into your PC, it should auto-discover it. While connected to the internet, reply YES to let windows search for a driver at MS. If it finds one, you should be ok. If it can't find one, I'm afraid it's not going to work.

There are drivers only for Windows XP and Windows 2000 Pro.

LG vs Lite On


both are just the same features just to write file from your hard drive. Maybe your point is you want the video from your VHS tapes will transfer to your hard drive. The only way to copy the video from your VHS is you need an external VHS player at the same time it will record the running video to a soft copy.

Please check this maybe this will be helpful http://www.allformp3.com/dvd-copy-software/convert-vhs-to-dvd.htm

Error message, There is not free space...........


this is nothing to do with the writer, the space it is refering to is your c drive hard drive space. When a dvd burns a video or photos etc, it has to write the image of whatever you are getting it to write it to your hard drive first, then when all the files are checked and encoded it will only then burn to the dvd disc. Your problem is you do not have enough free space on your hard drive for this to happen, that is why an error is reported. A dvd needs atleast 5GB of hard drive space to encode it first then burn it so check in the properties of your C drive to see how much space you have left, a minimum of 10GB is recommended.
