Slimtype dvd a ds8a1h ata device is not working. Previously worked fine. Now i get a 'Power calibration error'.

"Power Callibration Error" is the result of low laser power.
Open the DVD drive and carefully, with a cotton bud, rub the laser lens gently in a circular motion.
Try again.
If still faulty, replace the drive.

From your description I understand that the DVD drive is not working and you have code 10 error in device manager.
Do not worry, run the following fix on the pc and then restart the notebook.

I am not able to use my DVD drive because the driver is corrupt. It is the Slimtype DVD DS8A2S-A ATA. It came with my Compaq HP. So, far I can't repair it or find a replacement for it.

Your DVD is fine!!!. It is the driver that needs changing. Have you googled your Hp device? Usually when you google your device as "Slimtype DVD DS8A25-A Driver" You should see Hp site with drivers.Try that out!
