Device Error MyDVD 6.1

Question

Ive been trying to burn 8.5 GB DVDs and I keep getting a Device Error - Sense Code 3 73 03 along with Power Calibration Area Error - Sequential Write 2130932483.

 

Can anyone tell me what the problem is??

 

Thanks

 

PS. I'm using FujiFilm DVDs. I've used FujiFilm 4.7 DVD with no problems. I did have problems with Maxell 8.5 DVDs.

That's an error code from the drive. Try a different brand of media.

 

It could also be the drive itself, but trying a better brand of media should determine that.

 

Have a look at this for the best brands to use: http://www.digitalfaq.com/reviews/dvd-media.htm

If the Fuji 4.7s work with no problem, shouldnt the 8.5s work with no problem also?? Or are they not necessarily made by the same manufacturers, just branded Fuji??

Is your drive capable of burning DL (8.5) DVD discs? Just because a drive can burn single layer discs doesn't mean it can also burn dual layer ones.

 

What is the make/model of your burner?

According to the manufacturer's specs, it can. I have an HP 1040i DVD burner.

Get some Verbatim DL disc's.

 

Just Google "Power Calibration Area Error" and do some reading on this problem.

 

Here is just one http://www.megaleecher.net/Fix_Power_Calibration_Error

Ok, heres the latest.

 

I upgraded to MyDVD 10, updated the driver for my video card to one from 9/09. I also picked up some Verbatim discs, and cleaned my drive with a CD cleaner.

 

Now Im getting a 8007003e error on encoding msg.

 

I get the same error msgs whether I use the Fuji DVDs or the Verbatims.

Try this free app http://www.imgburn.com/ and see if you have the same problem.

 

Please verify that the error code you gave is correct.

The error msg is 8007000e Error while Encoding Menu.

 

As for some more info, I have checkmarks next to the following Steps, Open Project, Encode Movies, Encode Menus, and Complete.

 

I dont have a checkmark next to Record Menus.

 

I am also importing these files from MyDVD 6.1. Does that mean its an issue with the menu from the imported file?? And not with the media??

 

I'll try to capture and burn some video from scratch and see if the problem still occurs.

OK, another update.

 

I changed the menu from the imported v6.1 file, to a menu that's available from the v10 that I upgraded to, and I got past the 8007000e error I was getting.

 

But, I got another error.

 

I got a Failed to start the image writing operation Error while burning image error. That could be b/c I've been re-using the DVDs from the failed attempts.

 

Ill try again with a new DVD and see what happens.

 

Edit: Tried with a new disc, same thing happened.

Try the suggestion in post #8. This will prove that your DVD burner is ok. The errors you are getting don't come from the Roxio software.

 

Is the problem still only with DL's

Ok. So I read in another thread that you should burn the project to an image file first, then burn the image to DVD. Didnt work.

 

Got the 8007000e Error while Encoding menu msg while trying to burn the project to an image file.
