Re: DVD Burning Help :(

This may sound obvious, but sometimes I have a problem transferring if the disk is dirty or smudged. Once cleaned properly, Decrypter has no problem. Also, I assume you're using the "Read ISO" mode.

Unhappy Power Calibration Error

About a month ago I bought a DVD burner (Optowrite DD0405), and it never burned a DVD. Power Calibration errors always came up. I tried a few different kinds of media, and none of them worked. I was told that the drive may be defective. It was still under warrenty, so I brought it back and got a new drive of the same model. This one has the same problem. I was wondering if anyone could help me before I decide to trash it and buy a new model. Is it possible that both drives are defective? Maybe something is wrong on my end. I dunno, but any feedback would be apprecitated.

Thanks

Re: Power Calibration Error

hmmmmm well I have Firmware V. 160E, and when I went to see if there was an upgrade, it said the latest they had was v. 160E. Also I noticed the test computer they used had 512 MB of ram. I only have 256 MB. Maybe I don't have enough ram to burn DVDs. If it is any consilation, My power supply is only 250 watts, and I also updgraded my hard drive from 40 mb to 240 mb, so I was thinking maybe I simply don't have the power to burn DVDs. A few people I know told me that could be the problem, but some also say that the power has nothing to do with it. You see, I have a 4 year old computer than I just started upgrading some parts. maybe ram and power supply are what I need to upgrade next. Could that be a factor?

Thanks

Re: Power Calibration Error

RAM could definitely be yer problem...256MB is pretty low in re: to todays technologies with burning...powersupply is a bit less likely...

i would upgrade yer RAM to *atleast* 512MB, but 1GB is nicer!

Re: Power Calibration Error

Next week sometime I'll go buy another 512 MB, and let you know how it turns out. No point in Buying a new DVD burner if they are all having the same problem due to something wrong on my end.

Re: Power Calibration Error

don't think ram is gonna help you. It's probably the DVD player going bad. DVD burning programs go through a series of checks one of which is power calibration prior to start. Yours is failing. It could be your power supply but I highly doubt it. You've got a bad DVD player AGAIN. arrrgh.

Take it out and try it in a buddies computer. If it works it's probably something else. Put your buddies power supply in your computer and see if it makes a difference. Good Luck

Re: Power Calibration Error

surprisingly, RAM was the problem. I bought another 512 mb and added that to my 256 mb, and now I can burn DVDs. Thanks for all your help everybody.

Re: Power Calibration Error

wow. I stand corrected. Keep an eye on the burner though.
a sign of it going bad is carazy buffer levels. If when it's burning, you can see it going from 20 to 90 to 10 to 90.... it's a matter of weeks.

new to burning dvd's. please help me

so i just started downloading dvd's. i finished 11/27/01 phil and friends. now i don't know how to get it onto dvd. my friend said keep everything that downloaded, other than the text file in there. he said inside the folder i saved it, create 2 more folders, on labeled AUDIO_TS and the other labeled VIDEO_TS. he said put everything that downloaded inside the VIDEO_TS folder and leave nothing in the AUDIO_TS folder. he said then go to the dvd burner put the blank in and just pull over the main folder where everything is stored. i burned that, it completed but it seems to only be a data disc. it still has the 2 folders i created and the vob or vos or whatever the files and the smaller files as well. when i put that disc into my dvd player it said there was no playback. please tell me what i need to do from the time the download is completed until the time i can watch the actual dvd on my t.v. thanks for the help.
