    Moved to appropriate forum.

    Power calibration errors are usually caused by low quality media. What brand/type media are you using? Have you updated the firmware for the drive?

    Good ones to get at a retail store are Verbatim Metal AZO, Maxell and TDK, all in -R format.

    Did you update the firmware? Firmware helps media recognition and burn performace so I'd try Artec's site first and if there's nothing there you can try here:

    I haven't used XCopy in a dog's age but I know it'll split a large movie over two discs. I know the later versions will compress but I can't really remember.

    I recommended -R simply because I knew what the media code would be. I haven't used any of the +R from those makers so I wasn't sure what media code would be and whether it was any good or not.

    Here's a link to our XCopy forums for more info:

    Happy burning and don't be a stranger :)
