Question about Pantone ColorVision Spyder2 monitor calibrator (GEU110) for PC, Mac

Error 1168: Calibration Data not found

I just installed Spyder2 on a new computer after my old one proved too slow to put up with any longer. I am using the same LCD monitor that was attached to the old computer, but the Spyder2 software keeps giving me Error 1168: no calibration data found in the sRGB Color Space Profile... When I look in C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\spool\drivers\color, I see the "1-Plug and Play Monitor" as well as the "sRGB Color Space Profile." So, what am I missing here?

Re: Error 1168: Calibration Data not found

You have to put the file C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\spool\drivers\color\spyder2express.icm into display properties (click right on the desktop, select "properties", parametres, click on button "advanced" and tab "color profiles"). I use a french OS, so words may be different.

I'm getting a new iMac computer with Lion operating system. Will my Spyder2 (purchased in 2005) work with this? If not, can I download an upgrade? Thanks.

In short, NO. Spyder 2 uses Rosetta to run on a Mac, and Lion doesn't support Rosetta.
I had to **** it up and buy a Spyder 3. The plus side is that I can use the Soyder 3 to calibrate my IPad as well as the Mac.

Power Calibration Error.

first re install your nero .and
A) Power Calibration is controlled by the recorder. Before any write operation, all recorders must do a 15 step power test to determine the optimum power for writing to the CD; this is called "Optimum Power Calibration"(OPC). And during the write, it continues to do this test to get the best write throughout the whole CD; this is called "Running Optimum Power Calibration" (ROPC). This whole process is controlled by the recorder, though initiated by programs such as Nero. There is an area on the inner part of the CD for the test and test data info to be stored. You can use this area up to 999 times.

So, when you receive the "Power Calibration Error" or "Power Calibration Area full" error message, then the cause will be either poor media, poor Power, or a defective Recorder.

1) A might enable the OPC on this medium

2) Try another brand of CDR or CDRW media.

3) Also try different power connectors, and for recorders, do not share power with other devices. It needs its own power connector. If this occurs with an External recorder, the power source in the chassis could be the cause. Take the recorder out of the external chassis, and connect it internal, as a test.

4) Try different configurations, such as taking the CDROM to the Primary IDE bus as Slave, and have only the recorder connected to the Secondary IDE bus as Master.

5) Send the recorder in for Service.

I Hope this helps,

Error all the time

Several ways to attack this problem
Sounds like you have some way-outdated drivers.
Try right clicking each USB device in Hardware Manager, and select update. This MAY help
Download and install a Driver Finder program such as Driver Detective, then update all your drivers.

Try un-installing the DRIVERS for THAT DEVICE only, then shutdown and restart. See instructions below.
Click on the faulty device and hit the remove button, follow the instructions given by the program.
Shutdown, restart, the device will automatically reinstall by the "Found New Hardware" program.
If that does not work run install program again.
