Power Calibration Issue - VISTA Business


Nitro-Hype

Question

I have installed a new hard drive and perform a full install of Windows Vista Business Edition. Now when I try to burn anything to a DVD-R (the drive is a Plextor PX-716a) I recieve a POWER CALIBRATION ERROR. I have tried 4 brands of disc. The software is Roxio 9. :)

 

Before I had Windows XP Pro SP2 and I had never had any issues buring with the same drive and software.

 

Any suggestions?

This error is hard to figure out. In XP, there is a fix that's been on the net for awhile.

1 on desktop click start

2 select control panel

3 click on administrative tools

4 click on services

5 browse your way down to IMAPI CD BURNING COM SERVICE

6 right click (on IMAPI) then select properties

7 in the middle of the window it will say start up type.click on the arrow to the right and select disabled.

8 make sure you click APPLY

 

I'm not at a Vista system to see if you have the same options in the administrative tools.

Other suggestions are to try to burn at a slower speed, update firmware, different media (which you tried), or that your burner is dying.

If you are experiencing a drive problem, for those drives with the self-diagnostic feature (PX-320A, PX-W4012A/U, PX-4824A/U, PX-W4012S, PX-W5224A, Premium, PX-504A, PX-708A, PX-712A, PX-712SA, PX-716A, PX-716SA, PX-716AL, PX-230A), please perform the self-diagnostic prior to calling Tech Support. The self-diagnostic must be performed with a disc from your drive's recommended media list. Please check your Users Manual (or download the manual) for the correct procedure.
