I don't know if this is the solution you're looking for but if it's less than a year old I would say call sony and get a replacement drive. They may even be required to have a year hardware warranty (but don't quote me on that). That would actually be much faster/easier than searching the internet for a firmware fix that may or may not exist or help at all.

Dvd-r wont burn error message says "power calibration area error - medium error"....it used to work because i have burned many dvd -r sony discs. but all of a sudden it just quit i have been trying to fix...


Have you started a new batch of discs?
This error could you get when the drive and disc are not compatible.
So please look for new firmware for your drive or try another brand of discs.

Sony VGC RB53 wont recognize blank writeable cd/dvd's


Insert a blank CD, try to burn something on to the disk, if that is successfully done than the CD drive is fine, unless you have a problem. Sometimes blank discs don't show up with direct click.

My matshita uj-860s disc drive has stopped working


In my case, MATSHITA DVD-RAM UJ-860S did not want to write CD-R,-RW Verbatim using software NERO 8, but is easy to write their own software windows XP. 
in the Log file was as follows: 

Could not perform start of Disc-at-once 

Sense Key: 0x05 (KEY_ILLEGAL_REQUEST) 

Power calibration error 

whether 

Invalid field in parameter 
E: MATSHITA DVD-RAM UJ-860S 

ACTION! :) 
Change in method of recording NERO 8 Burning mode: DAO (Disc-at-once) at Burning mode: TAO (Track-At-Once) all have established! 
Simply drive MATSHITA was UNSUPPORTED software producers to write disks. 
Updating the software to burn CDs, as is windows XP supports the recording and includes drivers for the drive! :) 

Good luck!

Problem copying a movie onto a lightscribe hp dvd +r media disc, using my hp dvd940e dvd writer


The semaphore timeout period has expired refers to the fact that the driver is no longer communicating with the device and failed. Each time a CD Burner is setup for a CD Burning session the burner hardware will perform a 15 step power test to determine the OPC for a Blank Media Disc, OPC meaning Optimum Power Calibration. This test also takes place during the CD Burning process so the CD Burner can determine the best burn speed and method for the disc; this test is called 'Running Optimum Power Calibration'. Although the test is performed by the hardware of the CD Burner, the device initializes the CD Burning Software for the test to take place. This is one reason why your software may report the "Power Calibration Error" or ?Calibration Error Full?. With Power Calibration errors they can be caused by different factors and sometimes difficult to locate, especially if the errors are at random. Below are the known factors that will cause the Power Calibration Errors and how to check each factor, it is important that each point is considered if wanting to get to the bottom of the error. Power Calibration Errors can occur when OPC or ROPC tests for the media disc so the condition of the disc, brand of disc and even the firmware for the CD Burner can be the cause for the errors occurring. A device such as a CD Burners can have different problems if there is a power consumption issue with the system and the Power Calibration Error is just one of those problems. If using either an internal or external CD Burner make sure to disconnect all other devices, except the hard drive and Burner, before attempting to burn a disc. Double check all cables for any faults and if possible test with a 2nd Data Cable. It is also advisable to disconnect the power connection for the CD Burner and test with a spare connector. If you have no trouble with other discs, use them and put to one side the lightscribe, other than that try the burner in another pc or with other burning software, as you can see it's quite ridiculous what problems burners can create.

Matshita uj-825s dvd ram - wont finalize dvd discs


update to the latest firmware/drivers, and the latest nero. It could be your drive or media. Try cleaning the lens with a comercial DVD lens cleaner or sometimes some compressed air will do the trick. Try also to write an image of the disk to the Hard drive. that could rule out any of the software... :-) And also try burning CD's. it might be that the DVD burning mechanism is screwed. Close as many programs as you can before burning, it might be a memory problem. And finaly check your DMA setting - http://home.comcast.net/~bbmayo/checking%20DMA.pdf Good luck
