Slimtype dvdrw ssm-8515s grs2 problem

My dvd rw can read and write on a normal cd but not on a dvd. i get a 'power calibration error' everytime i try to burn a dvd. it works well on a normal cd. the only problem is when i insert a dvd. it reads dvd sometimes but it takes too much time before it loads. it stops when it reads too. i can't find the right firmware for this burner. please help. thanks.

    Almost the same problem. I can´t write DVDs. Some DVDs can be read by ssm-8515s, but not by onothers drvs. It is possible to see 3 different "write intensities" on media (something like laser led changing its power during the recording process). I´ve heard a guy in Seattle fixed this problem, but it´s necessary to deal with sites in japonese. Need help

How to fix pioneer dvd-rw dvr-212 power calibration error


For $40, buy a brand-new CD/DVD reader/writer, and replace the "dying" unit -- cheaper than paying a technician to TRY to "repair" it.

Or you talking about burning DVD or CD.

Do do a Google search on XP Burner this is a good software for FREE software for burner CD. For DVD, go to slysoft.com and get a free version of their software and see if you like it for 30 days.

Lettore cd/dvd acer aspire 5630


Ciao,
Allora, ho il tuo stesso pc e mi è già capitato il prob. Mi sè risolto formatando il pc ma non è minca finita qui..
dopo un mesetto mi si ripresentato. La coluzione defintiva è stato quella di sfruttare la mia garanzia per farmene spedire uno nouve di zecca. Ovviamente solo il pezzo guasto.

Se no puoi provare a smontarlo e pulire il lettore dvd con l'alcol (xkè evapora).
Tienimi al corrente per eventuali sviluppi.
Ciao

I need the driver for my slimtype dvdrw ssm-8515s. it says no driver installed error code 41


It shouldn't need a specific driver, the driver should be loaded as part of the standard IDE/ATAPI support for Windows (what version of Windows are you running?)

In Device Manager, try Uninstalling the device (right-click it, choose Uninstall), then restart the system. It should be auto-detected again and Windows will try to reinstall the appropriate drivers.

If that doesn't work, we will need more information about your computer.
