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 CDB: 2A 00 00 00 00 20 00 00 20 00 Interpretation: Write (10) - Sectors: 32 - 63 Sense Area: 70 00 03 00 00 00 00 0A 00 00 00 00 73 03 00 00 00 00 Interpretation: Power Calibration Area Error 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??
