A power calibration error is caused by the inability of a DVD-RW drive to use a DVD-R or DVD-RW disk, it first writes a bit of a data on the DVD then uses it to calibrate itself for the position of the lines. This however can be caused by a number of reasons, so try the following options one after the other, If option 1 does not work, go to option 2, etc.

1:) Matshita has problems with some cheaper brands, get yourself a very known brand DVD as a test like pioneer or tdk

2:) Using a higher speed than the media is meant for, try lowering your burning speed in nero, try the lowest even, let's see if helps

3:) You have a Lenovo as you say. If it comes with Sonic, please uninstall Sonic first, then uninstall nero, then install nero again. Sonic and nero tend to conflict. But even if you do not have Sonic, reinstall nero and apply all new patches.

4:) If option 3 did not help, update the firmware, that helps in a lot of cases.

5:) If even option 4 did not help, disable IMAPI Service (Work's in most cases):
- Launch Control Panel -> Administrative Tools -> Services .
- Browse for "IMAPI CD-Burning COM Service", Right-click on it - and select properties.
- Change Startup Type to Disabled.
- Click Apply and Reboot.

6:) The burner lense needs cleaning, please don't attempt this at home if you are not a mechanic, take it to service they will clean it.

7:) Drive failure, or drive burning out -- then it needs to be replaced, if none of the above helped that is.

If you overlock your computer that can also cause this problem but since you use a laptop I assume you did not overclock it. Let me know if any of the above helped and what the results were.:)

What is Power2Go and do I need it


That depends. What OS are you running? What type of files will you burn to disc (and what capacity disc)?

The program lets you burn various files to CD, DVD or BD. If you only plan on burning data files, you may not need it. If you burn ISO to create bootable CDs or DVDs, you might find it useful if you have XP. Windows 7 and 8 include a feature to correctly burn ISOs. (I don't remember if that feature is included in Vista.)
If you want to copy optical discs to burn backup copies, this software will also handle that. The Windows built-in software doesn't copy discs with DRM.

If you are compiling your own audio and video and then burning the resultant file to disc, the software is partially useful. (Another program has to do the compiling.)
There are other programs that do the same tasks as Power2Go. Roxio Creator (includes the video editing and playback software in addition to the burning unit) and Nero Burning ROM are commonly advertised options. A review of Power2Go with links to reviews of similar products is here: http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2407197,00.asp .
I hope this helps. If you need additional information, please add a comment with your OS and file burning plans.

(I burn more ISOs and data files. Thus I use the Windows built-in software most of the time.)

DVDS burn failure


Mmmm... to hard to know what is happening, as many things in computers that problem could come from many sides.

First advice: USE NERO (JUST NERO) its the best for windows.
You can get NERO for free on the net, at least just a trial version.

Second advive: make sure you have at least 512 MB of RAM
enough free HD space at lease 5 giga for a DVD.

Do this first to ensure your problem is not the software youre using... I will assume at this point that your operative system is running perfectly, because if not, your problem is just there.
And I will also assume your CD/DVD unit is 100% OK... otherwise nothing will help.

Install NERO and try burning at a low speed (8 maximum)

if you have problems... I would need much more information on this matter and you might need to spend money in a new recorder.

If you use the Nero Smart start, you should see an icon to switch from burning CDs to burning DVDs. Once you click this icon, you should be able to burn to DVDs.
