    I've bee burning for a long time and now I get a "Power Calibration Error". Can someone tell me what this means and what to do about it.I can no longer burn anything because this pops up right after the "Lead-In" phase. I have an old HP CD-Writer 8100. It's old but it's been relaible. I an using NERO to burn and up to this point, I've had no problems.

    [bold] CAUSES[/bold]
    Number 1 cause is shitty media
    Number 2 cause is out of date firmware
    Number 3 cause is your drive may be on the way out

    [bold] Try these[/bold]
    Change the media to something more durable ,but you havent told us what you are currently using?

    Update your firmware!

    If neither of the 2 suggestions dont work the last one is this but make sure you are using the same brand media

    If you think its the drive pull it out and put it in another pc to try
