    What make/model burner do you have, and what program are you using to burn your media with?

    What brand of disks are you using? Have you successfully burned other disks? What speed are you trying to use.

    My gut response is that you've got a bad batch of disks. Try another brand of disk at a slower speed.

    Please respond back with your answers so we can help.

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.

Power Calibration error


powe calibration error reffers to lens laser power
in other words the laser doesn't have enough power to write CD/DVD at specified speed

try to clean the lens (there are special CD-s for that)
and try to burn the cd or DVD at slower speed

but slowly your cd writer is dying

CANNOT WRITE CDS


Had a drive that did the exact same thing myself. You'll need to replace the CD drive. It's cheaper than having it repaired.

My DVD Ram drive is not reading any CD/DVD


The most common reasons for a power calibration error is a dirty lens or bad media. Clean the lens with a short burst of cabbed air or carefully wipe it with a cotton swab.
Good luck.

I want to install a CD burner in to my PC so that i can play or save pictures in CD


Find your CD/DVD writer from any computer shop and; install the software that come with the hardware after proper installation of the hardware using the manual. then you will be able to write to your media medium (cd/dvd).

CD burner quits while burning


Hi There,

I sugesst that you look at the recent hotfixesyou have installed. I would install SP3, and take from there. I am sure that you have tried buring at a slower speed.

No the burner will not burn out, but could do with a clean, you can buy cleaning disk from a pc shop..

Please let me know how you get on - good luck

regards,

Philip

Power Calibration Area Is Full


it could be because you have far too many usb connected devices sucking the power from your system try removing a few usb connect devices and try again or buy a bigger power supply unit i reccommend at least 650 - 700 watt

Try to swop the disc that you have for another one-it will very likely burn to the the replacement.Some discs are troublesome.
