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.

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:
Pressing add is not necessary. You can also open folders outside of Nero Express, and then you drag and drop the same way.
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:
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!
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.
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.
Ok try this DO NOT insert the media until you have completed ya assembly... then tell it to "Burn" it will then ask for the media.. at this point insert ya CD... it should be "Detected" and ya Burn should proceed.I have had this work for me before.
Also try Alcohol 120% thats a great Burner. As well as CopytoDVD...
