    Ugh [​IMG],

    Well, I have a Samung TSSTcorp CD/DVDW SH-S182M SB05 PC Burner/Drive.

    I'm trying to burn some "media" ( [​IMG] ) to some TDK/Verbatim DVD+R disc(s).

    When burning using ImgBurn, I set the booktype to DVD-ROM (of course right?)

    When I select my drive, select my media, and then click DVD-ROM, and click "Change", it says "Success!", then I click ok.

    Burning my media at x2.4.

    When I first start the burn, it says "Writing LeadIn", and just stays at that.

    I notice that the "Write Retries" keep going up and up. I click ImgBurn Log, and there's lots of yellow exclamation points next to this, "W 16:48:03 Retry Failed - Reason: Power Calibration Area Error"

    My drive HAS to support DVD+R right? I mean, it can burn to DVD-R's perfectly with no problem.

    I had that problem when I got my new drive. What I did to fix it was:

    1) Open Device Manager
    2) Open IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers
    3) Uninstalled entries
    4) Reboot.

    When I started back up, everything reinstalled and I didn't have that Power problem.

    So try that, hope it works out.

    Edit: Also, try this post for booktype
    How to set the Booktype....
    It's a nice guide by Kitt050383.

    Ok, uninstalled what I could.

    Rebooted, it DID reinstall items,

    But still the SAME problem ;~;

    EDIT:

    And thanks for that guide.

    But their instructions don't match what I'm seeing.

    I can't even select what booktype to use.

    What about trying Nero?

    I have the same burner but no problems whatsoever with Nero.

    Hum.. maybe you could update your IDE drivers, and the firmware for your drive. That's about the last thing I can think of doing.

    I guess I will try Nero. Thanks ashesburn.


    And I've updated each and every driver, some of them say they can't find a better firmware than I have now.

    Thanks for your help Ivoire!

    Do post back and let us know if the problem was because of the burning software. I personally would like to know very much. Cheers! [​IMG]

    Well, I'm trying to install Nero 9, trial version. And apparently the serial number I enter is too old.

    Tf?

    I use Nero 7. Didn't really like 8 or 9.

    I noticed you posted the same topic in CDFreaks, buy a new DVD burner? Cheap as chips nowadays.

    Yeah, I'm trying everywhere to find my answer. As I don't want all these DVD+R's going to waste.

    As for Ashesburn, I got Nero 7. But still the same error.

    I guess my only luck is to just buy DVD-R's, or get a better drive.

    Thanks for all your help people!

    Sorry to hear that it still didn't work.

    You're right, the next logical step is to try different media or DVD drives.

    Good luck!
