Do I need a DC plug to operate the Sony DRX-820U burner? I don't seem to find it.

At the back side of your dvd recorder, near the USB port, is the connector for connecting the external power supply (12Volts, 3.0Amp) that is included in the box.

I keep having failed burn sessions it says "Power Calibration error" what and how can I fix that

Their could be several possible reasons and solutions for the above error, basically what is happening is for some reason the CD/DVD burning software is unable to determine the Optimum Power Calibration rate (a small pre-burn test to determine optimal laser power for writing), resulting a disk burn failure. There is no easy way to pinpoint the exact reason, so try all the possible fixes from top to bottom (easy to hard) and see what works:
Try using different brands of quality blank media, most common reason for such error's is cheap blank media.
Try burning at lower speeds (Highly effective).
If this fails try a different burning software

I have an hp using windlows vista and when I try to insert a cd the door on the dvd/cd writer won't open, either manually or when i try to burn a cd

This is the issue with your CD/DVD Drive. Better you change the hardware. Other wise take one pin and push in the hole which you can see in CD/DVD drive. That time the tray will open.

Sony DRX 820U won't eject.

Stick a paperclip in the small hole in the tray...sounds like the disk that's in it is causing disk in it...uh oh...I smell in toast.
