Asus, matshita uj890as using memorex dvd-r dics the drive reads cd dvd etc, it just wont burn.
I am getting the same error code from all the burning programs I tried "Power calibration error" It is not the media I have another laptop that burned the same failed disc fine. I have tried updating the drivers also uninstalled the drive from device manager and rebooted still nothing any other ideas?

It's possible the laser is burned out. You may need to replace it.

But to be sure it is not a software problem, you might try burning with a different operating system that will boot from CD or DVD, like Ubuntu or:


Parted Magic disk partitioning, PC repair, and file recovery tool (Bootable CD or USB image)
If you prefer a bootable USB key, download and run Linux Live USB Creator. Choose the Parted Magic distro, and it will download it and automatically create a bootable USB key.

This CD (or key) contains many useful tools. You can partition, recover files, recover lost partitions, make disk images (by several different methods), transfer files between media, scan for viruses (It can serve as an Alternative Trusted Platform for search and elimination of rootkits and bootkits), examine and benchmark hardware, access the internet, and much more.

I'd Assume it doesnt take much power to read a disc,but yet it takes alot more to burn it to the disc,i'd replace is with some cheap but just asgood like a LG Dvd burner,easily pick one up for about $50
