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

Unable to copy music to cd by using nero7


First you need to locate your music/audio. If it was downloaded from Limewire/Frostwire the default location would be C:\Documents and Settings\**Your Username**\Shared

You can also access your music/audio through Limewire/Frostwire, by going to your Library, then highlighting a file that you want to burn and press explore. This will open the folder containing the highlighted file.

Alternatively use the search to search for something you know is in the folder you want to access or eg. search for the extension of the music/audio you want to burn.

----------------------------------------

First it may be worth mentioning that there are two ways of burning audio in Nero 7. Using Nero Express or Nero Burning ROM (The original Nero program). I find both very simple to use, but prefer Nero Express, so That's what I will use here.

First open Nero StartSmart:

3210d1212478530t-making-audio-cd-using-nero-7-nero-express-step-1.gif

Pressing add is not necessary. You can also open folders outside of Nero Express, and then you drag and drop the same way.

3212d1212478533t-making-audio-cd-using-nero-7-nero-express-step-2.gif

You can make mp3 disks using Nero Express as well. Just choose make Data Disk instead of Audio CD in Nero StartSmart. The only difference you will see is that instead of minutes you will be adding size (MB)

In case you run into playback issues when using Nero Express, then you have two options. You could try using Nero Burning ROM. Raaf explains here how to do that with Nero 6, but Nero 7 is very similar:

Burning a (audio) CD from your MP3's (Windows)

Another way is to run a tool called CD/DVD Drive Speed (can be found in Nero StartSmart under Tools, where you let Nero burn test disks for checking the best speed for this type of disk.

Hope this helps and Good luck idea.gif

I use Nero Express to copy personal DVDs. My computer, Windows XP, crashed and when I reinstalled Nero Express. When I now try to copy a DVD the Source disk prompt lists my DVD drive but the destination...


You will have to copy your DVD in two steps. First copy to the hard drive, then remove the source DVD and copy again using the hard drive as the source and a blank DVD as the destination.

Unable to Boot


I think you burn into CD\DVD is incorrect. Recopy any Software is OK using ISO, but to find out that your burn that into proper ISO also, It will not work. To burn is again is extracted from ISO back to Bootable Windows Vista DVD.
Here is a a tip, use another program like Nero to burn into image, the file is .NRG or .ISO...
Or for easy tip, try COPY DISC for assurance that it will run again as is.
Good luck!

What did I do wrong? I copied doc files to a CD.


Is it a dvd-rom, dvd-rw, cd-rom, cd-rw?

What is the cd/dvd disk drive you are using?
(A dvd-rom, dvd-rw, cd-rom, cd-rw?)

This may be the problem.

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.

Cannot copy files to DVD disks


First of all you should have the recording tab ON. Have you tried burning using Nero instead of dragging and dropping? This may solve the problem.

However, if you prefer to drag and drop, try setting the write speed to a slower setting, even if the dvd burner has faster write capabilities.

1. I do not think it is a hardware issue.

2. You can try replacing the IDE cable, but if you can read the contents of the disk it does not suggest a communication issue between the drive and mobo.

3. I do not think that the burning software is to blame, when you drag and drop you are actually using a windows based burning software that is installed with the operating system.

4. set up your files to burn through nero, let the software do the work.

I had the same issue with my dvd burner, although slightly different error messages, solved it by using nero instead.

Have you tried clicking "Preferences" - "Device Setting" - then "Drive Select" - if you have a DVD burner and the camera you must select which drive you want to read from (took me a while to find that one out),,, Hope that helps.
