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.

You can get a box called Copy Decoder. This will connect via a scart socket between a video recorder and a DVD recorder. It will remove the copy protection system. If you have decent computer you can also transfer them to your computer. There are several brands of software that will take in the video file and upscale them to high-definition files and make DVD's or Blue Ray discs if your computer has a Blue Ray writer drive.
The box and software can be found by searching Amazon.

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.

Copy from vhs to dvd- want to speed process ???


I'm afraid, VHS tape have to be playback on standard speed for good picture and sound and dvd would also burn accordingly.
Noo way for fast dubbing because VHS tape video is analog signal that changed into digital signal in circuits to write on dvd disc.
I hope you understand how this dubbing works.

Are you trying to copy a comercial VHS tape to DVD?
If you are then macrovision copy protection system on either the tape or in the machine is the reason for the loss of colour.
There's not a lot you can do about it. If you want to copy commercial material you will need to transfer it to a computer and get a program to do it. But unless it's unavailable it is cheaper to buy the DVD version I have found and you will get better picture and sound too!
If it does it with a none comercial tape (ie something recorded of the TV). Then it could be a head fault or something else. In which case try cleaning all the heads guides etc first.

VHS to DVD


I just bought at Best Buy the Samsung DVD Recorder & VCR. You can copy your VHS tapes right to DVD and or hook up an external source into the deck and copy them to DVD.  I find it working well but many of my tapes have tracking issues which is becoming a hurdle for myself.
