    I followed the guide written by scubapete which was great help for getting my burner ready to burn Dvd's but i run into a problem. I have the DVD shrinked in my DVD burner then after its done it automatically opens DVD decrypter and i open my dvd burner then put the blank CD in there. Im using Memorex DVD-R 4X cd's. Once i put the blank dvd in it start to get ready to burn then i get this error message:

    I/O Error!
    Device: [1:1:0]OPTORITE DVD RW DD0405 160E (E:) (ATA)

    Scsistatus: 0x02
    Interpretation: Check Condition

    ok now, i wasent quite sure how to get the burner up and running...so i have no clue what so ever to what that error message means lol. The only thing i can think of is that its the Blank DVD's?

    BTW i also have Nero and got the same kind of error when it begain to burn.

    Please HELP!

    thanks alot.

    PS I have been able to burn music CD's on this burner so...what the problem is?? :(

    It may be a media problem. What did Pete say about media? Power Cal problems occur when your burner cannot set the laser power correctly. Possible causes are Bad Media, dirty laser, weak power supply, your burner may be going bad.

    If you're after official f/w then Optowrite homepage would be a good place to start ; )

    Otherwise maybe have a look here : http://forum.rpc1.com/

    If you are running Win XP O/S then after a restart your PC should see your 2 drives again...

    You shouldn't have any problem with official firmware from Optorite homepage [if choosing the right f/w for your specific drive].
