Re: power calibration area full

There are many facts cause "Power calibration area Full" error. First of all clean up your TEMP files. Make sure DVD media you are using is supported by you DVD Writer. CDs are rather easy to write. DVD requires more precise laser beam to channel as its more dense than CD. So physical facts like dust on the lens might be a factor too. Also firmware update for your DVD Writer will be a great step. These are the main factors.

Good Luck

I am trying to copy Windows 7 SP1 either as the simple service pack or Windows 7 Ultimate with SP1 but for both files I receive the same Toshiba Disc Creator error message 310981-34-00000000. I have...

That will only work with the Toshiba Disk Creator software and if anyone has made those already it won't work at all. Those are both copy protested files that use a special format to keep people from making copies of them. The back up files stored on the hard drive for restore purposes only work with the disk creator software that comes with Toshiba computers and that software has a hard coded counter that won't let you make more than 1 copy. If your using the correct software and still have the problem it maybe the DVD's your using. Make sure you have DVD's that are a compatible format with your DVD writer function. You may need the DVD -R instead of the +R dvd's you indicated you are using.

All of a sudden i can't burn any DVD with my DELL 1510 laptop, but i can read DVD's.I get error message with nero "fixation error" and "power calibration error".I'v tried re installing...

Nero's "Fixation Error" means the laser has lost power and cannot "Fix" or burn data to the disk anymore.
Replace the drive. Check ebay for a good price.
Hope this will help.

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.:)

Windows dvd maker , vista home premium o/s, hp pavillion laptop

I found the biggest problem with using win dvd maker is when windows asks you to format the disk first. If you do format the disk first then win dvd maker has problems writing to it. Only put the disk in the drive when win dvd maker asks you to other wise you will be taken through to format the disk first and if you choose to cancel that it causes silly problems. If you are trying to make more than one copy of the same disk and win dvd maker is acting up, just do the one copy and then close the program. Then use a program such as nero and make copies from within there. You can insert the disk open Nero and select copy disk, you can do this until you have all of the copies that you need. Personally I found that win dvd maker is too slow and laborious.

Laptop CD/DVD Drive

In order to copy files to a CD like a hard drive you need a program that can treat the CD like a hard drive. Sometimes called *drag and drop or drag to disk*, is this what you?re using and if so what program are you using?
