Power Area Calibration Error Occured

Postby schwarenhof on Sat Jun 07, 2003 9:27 pm

Hi I'm using the NEC CD-RW NR-9100A and I am having problems with the error message Power Area Calibration Error and TrackWriting error. I can burn at 8X but no longer at 40X. What are some of the reasons this would be so? What are some solutions? I've tried different CD-Rs and I get the same message. It burns fine on 8X but it's kind of slow. Also, it won't burn audio Cds. Or maybe it's working sporadically because I tried burning In Utero and it worked but when I tried another set of songs it didn't fully burn, so I had wasted CDs. I am running a Dell, Windows XP and I just got the computer a few months back! Please help! Thanks! 8)

Welcome to CDRLabs, Schwarenhof! :D

I might suggest trying media such as Fuji 48x, or some other media made by Taiyo Yuden, if you haven't already. This thread can help you determine who actually made your discs.

I wonder if the drive is dying. That error might make sense for poor media, but not for good media.

As you said that you have tried several brands of CD-Rs, I would suggest contacting Dell to get a new drive.

Maybe I missed something, but I can't think of anything else. :cry:
