I have had an abundance of problems when attempting to burn dvd's. Most common error I get is (medium error). Last error received was, "Power calibration error, RW DW-Q30A, Medium error. My operating system is Windows XP Professional Version 2002 Service Pack 2, Intel Pentium 4 CPU 3.00GHz, .99 GB of RAM. SONY DVD RW DW-Q30A driver provided by microsoft, driver date 7/1/2001, version 5.0.2535.0. I updated the firmware from YYS2 to YYS7 but this did not help. Approximately 125 DVD's have been destruyed due to this issue. Please help.

The error code 80070017 indicates a read error in one of the installation files. This may be caused by a corrupt installation medium (dirty, scratched or otherwise defective DVD; image burn process went wrong in case you created the DVD yourself from an image; defective memory if installation from USB stick).
The file may also got faulty on download; try to download the installation image again.
If the error persists, clean your DVD burner, use quality media and lower the burn speed.
Start by checking your WINDOWS CONTROL PANEL. Be sure there are no errors for your drivers. IF you have your proper drivers for your DVD Drive, totally remove ALL drivers and then restart your system... still have problems?
Next TOTALLY DELETE your Roxio program... somewhere on the Internet there is a tool that will do just that. You want to try your best to CLEAR and ALL hard drive and REGISTRY traces of ROXIO program(s)!
Just ONE bad ROXIO/REGISTRY problem can have you chasing your tail for days/forever.
With ROXIO deleted, try one of the FREE DVD burning programs to assure it's not really a DVD problem?
I just did a GOOGLE check and there are tons of hits for you.
The ITunes error 4261 appears when attempting to burn CD's. The error code can appear for several reasons, including a faulty CD-RW, used CD's or a slow speed burner.
The error may also occur when you are trying to burn a file that has Dynamic Random Memory from ITunes & you have exceeded your permitted attempts.
The error can also happen if you are accessing the files from a different PC than where it was registered.
Try slowing your burn speed to 16x or even 12x or use Nero Express or Windows Media Player to burn your MP3 files. Other techniques for resolving this error include using new CD's & activating DLA in the Drive Properties.
I truly hope that one of these solutions clearly resolves your problem. Good luck.
