I have experienced the exact same error on my system. However, i only happened with DVD's and not CD's. So I tried a few more DVD's, got the same error. Decided to gove it one more try, and the next disc worked! Burnt very slowly but it did eventually finish. The one after that worked as well.

I suspect it's the media (Discs) you are using may have some factory defects with them. Try another disc from the same pile, or eve better, buy a different brand and try those.

Hope that helps,

Cheers

Power caliberation error


  • 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).

    Disable IMAPI Service (Work's in most cases):

    1. Launch Control Panel -> Administrative Tools -> Services .
    2. Browse for "IMAPI CD-Burning COM Service", Right-click on it and select properties.
    3. Chnage Startup Type to Disabled.
    4. disable_imapi.jpg
    5. Click Apply and Reboot.
  • Try updating or changing your CD\DVD burning software to the latest version.
  • Try upgrading your writer's firmware.
  • If all the above fails the problem is definitely related to hardware and not software, Go ahead and get your burner laser lens cleaned by a professional.
  • If all the above fails the drive's laser might have died and you need to get it replaced.
  • Best Of Luck, do post your results.

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

APC Smart-UPS 1000VA UPS System calibation problem


If battery charge indicator is flashing it should be UPS calibration issue, If all the LED indicator is light up in the front panel and UPS still can go online on battery mode you just need to replace the board on the front panel and the light will just back to normal state.

Factory default disc on acer 4520G


Hello,

If you have Nero of Power ISO installed you can right click the .iso file and there should be a command in the shortcut menu that states "burn with Nero" or burn iso with Power ISO, etc. this should apply to other disc burning software you have installed.

As you may know, .iso files are a compressed disc image file that contains the data layout for a complete CD or DVD. Most of the time, burning an iso image from first opening your disc burning software is more difficult but can be done by hunting through your software's menu commands.

Hope this has fixed ya!
