Re: DVD Burner will not burn
Read the front of your drive to see if you have a DVD-R or DVD-RW drive. A DVD-R will copy a DVD to your hard drive, but will not burn it. If you do have a DVD-RW drive, try a different brand of disc or a DVD-R disc, some drive are just temperamental.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

If you are using windows xp pro or windows 7, you should be able to just copy the files directly to your DVD drive under My Computer (or Computer) with a blank disk in the drive. When you are ready to burn them to the disk, right-click on the drive and choose the option to Burn to Disc.
Otherwise I also use a free option called CDBurnerXP which does a very good job.

Either the drive is bad or your using the wrong type of blank dvds.Try using DVD-R or DVD-RW for betters chances of success.Sometimes some of the new DVDs are bad.Make sure you try a couple different ones even from a new pack of DVDs.
Is your DVD/RW. you may only have the dvd that can read disk. have you ever burn cd or dvd on this dvd rom.
To burn dvd you have to have the software.This does not come with the dvd. you have to buy one on your own
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.
