am new to the forum,so hope this is posted in the right area. I have nero 6 and running windows xp but am having problems burning cd's.It reads the data fine no problem but when it comes to writing that information it gets to about 3% of the lead-in and then the red light goes out comes back on and then stops and I get an error message saying burn failed - power callibration error.
It was suggested I disable the Imapi setting which initially helped and i was able to burn 1 cd no problem but now I am getting the same problem again. It seemed to write to a rewriteable cd ok but not a standard CDr.Someone else suggested updating the BIOS but didn't say what to and where to go.I had a look at the properties of BIOS but not sure what if anything in there should be changed?Should the change(if any) be made under the ''compatability'' setting?
Hope someone can help:)
all seems ok now.I did go to the Ahead site and contacted them,a few days later they responded with a few possible solutions.
In the end we put in a slightly faster writer and have made sure not to use Imation brand cd's.
