Question about HP dvd1170e DVD-RAM Burner

1 Answer

Two things...when burning to DVD, burn process would fail and comment says, "calibration area full." Another concern is that it took a brand of DVD discs that I have been using for months, and is now burning at 8x when it is usually 16x. Thank you in advance for your help! Bryan

I keep having failed burn sessions it says "Power Calibration error" what and how can I fix that


Their could be several possible reasons and solutions for the above error, basically what is happening is for some reason the CD/DVD burning software is unable to determine the Optimum Power Calibration rate (a small pre-burn test to determine optimal laser power for writing), resulting a disk burn failure. There is no easy way to pinpoint the exact reason, so try all the possible fixes from top to bottom (easy to hard) and see what works:
Try using different brands of quality blank media, most common reason for such error's is cheap blank media.
Try burning at lower speeds (Highly effective).
If this fails try a different burning software

When trying to burn a dvd half way thru process get burning failures any suggestions


Hello friend,
This can be caused by many things:
1. which software you use to burn dvds? i suggest Nero or CloneCD. 2. which DVD brand you use? you man use a good brand like Sony or Verbatim... 3. you may lower the burning speed by half the speed and see if this will happen again. 4. last thing, you should try different files, maybe the file that you are trying to burn is corrupted.
Best Regards,

Hello there jpd0490.

Here's your geek-steer ...

There are principally two chief causes for this type (calibration) of burn failure:
  1. Inadequate quality media (disks). Verbatim is always a solid choice. However, more important than the brand-name disks are sold under, is the actual manufacturer. You can determine this with the aid of a little software tool called "DVD Identifier". There is an entire sub-culture devoted to tracking the best media available, right down to the manufacturing lot level.
  2. Drive failing. Since you say that it works consistently otherwise, this option is unlikely.
Good luck, and please do post back ...
  • to let me (and interested others) know how things worked out,
  • to provide clarification or feedback,
  • if you have ANY further questions.

Tried to burn a DVD using Power Cinema by going Create DVD, Author & Burn etc. Get to the end for the buring process and got a error code: FF037303. What does that mean?-


means you have a faulty or failed DVD burner (error is Power Calibration Error, returned through the ATAPI driver). Test with different /branded/ blank media, if none work then replace the drive.If you find one that works, stock up.

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.
