You might need to re-install the cd-burner driver (nero). suspected also could the your dvd-rom drive faulty. contact your service center to replace your dvd-rom drive.

Were you able to write a single music or another file using Nero? Were you able to burn the image using the Active ISO burner? Did you try a new fresh blank DVD or are using the same DVD again? Try to free some more space from your C drive and then check again.

Power Callibration Error


This error has nothing to do with your DVD drive hardware, so you can be sure your Laptop is ok. This is software error with Nero. Try and reinstall Nero or just try and burn DVDs at lower speed.

Not able to write dvd on my lenovo3000Y500 laptop


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.:)

DVD Writer not working


Hi,
the device has a power callibration error, meaning that it cannot apply sufficient power to the laser head, to burn your disks.
Alternatively the laser head may be-weak, out of alignment.
this is a Drive error, you can try a CD head cleaning Disk.
The problem, could also relate to the motherboard not supplying enough power the actual drive itself.
ensure you have a full battery, and A/C adaptor into the laptop.
also try uninstalling-re-installing nero.
if all this fails, consider a repair or re-placement DVD Rom.

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.
POSSIBLE SOLUTIONS:

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,
