Question about CD & DVD Burners

1 Answer

Power calibration error

I have just bought a samsung dvd/rd rw burner model SH-S202H or TS-H652H as part of a dell desktop.
It works for reading and scanning CDs. But when I try to burn a cd or DVD.
I then get a power calibration error and it refuses to write to the CD even though there is space available and the CD is a RW cd and the cd is good.
If I use another CD/RW burner on a different PC it works fine.
I thought of trying to downkload the most up to date firmware and drivers but I am unable to locate the model number.

In the past some burns did not like some makes of cdr's. Ask a friend for a blank cd from a differant manufactor. And be sure that your burn software is set to use the right drive.

POWER CALIBRATION ERROR


Power Calibration error indicates that the drive hasn't been kept clean and is unable to guarantee a good write to disc...
I recommend a wet and dry CD/DVD Cleaner disk with Alcohol on the wet side (Like Tape Head cleaner liquid) and let it dry for a minute then run the disc again... if it still happens the drive is on its way out.

Samsung SHW08A DVD±RW doesn't burn dvd+r


Its because you need a firmware update. The media you are currently using isn't recognized. I stumbled in here with the same problem. I haven't been able to find an update, so I will probably have to try a different brand of disc myself. The burner worked fine until I tried using a new pack of Verbatim discs.

DVD PROBLEM


your dvd has a calibration problem... some dvds can be recalibrated... but you have to take it to an tech service to do that for you... otherwise dvds are really cheap things today.
