Power calibration error burning DVD's

Recently, my Lite-On DVD external burner has been giving me problems. I have been unable to burn my regular guitar DVD's - every time I've tried burning one the last week an error has occurred. I looked closer at the error message today, and it says "power calibration error" when I use Nero to burn a DVD. I have been using the same brand of DVD's for quite some time, so I found it hard to believe the discs suddenly became faulty.

I did some research today, and I found some other people have been having the same problems. Some of them had tried to update the firmware, so I went to the Lite-on website and found an updated driver.

After downloading the correct driver in a zip file, I simply unzip the exe file inside and started the update process. A short while later, the process was finished and I had to reboot my machine.

Needless to say, I tried burning a DVD again, and lo and behold - it works like a charm again! I was beginning to think the burner was dying and that I had to replace it. Good thing I tried the firmware update. It saved me both time and money.

If you have been getting the "power calibration error' with your DVD burner, you should definitely try updating the firmware. It must just work for you too.
