Fix "Power Calibration Error" While Burning CD/DVD

        3-4 month ago i was used my DVD burner lat time to write DVD, today after 3-4 months while i am trying to write image file to CD using PowerISO it is showing some thing like (60x00000000...) error message after few seconds from burning process is started. after that i think it may be problem with Power-ISO S/W hence i used Power2Go, again same problem even i wasted my 3-4 CD's i installed Nero-8 on my computer..but here different kind of error message occurred "Power Calibration Error" and "Could not perform end of disc at-once" error message.

        After wasting  time and money i searched on internet to fix this error. Here you will find some following methods have solved my problem with 3rd one..

Their could be several possible reasons and solutions for the above error, basically what is happening is for some reason the CD/DVD burning software is unable to determine the Optimum Power Calibration rate (a small pre-burn test to determine optimal laser power for writing), resulting a disk burn failure. There is no easy way to pinpoint the exact reason, so try all the possible fixes from top to bottom (easy to hard) and see what works:

    1]  Try using different brands of quality blank media, most common reason for such error's is cheap blank media.

    2] Try burning at lower speeds (Highly effective).

    3] By blowing laser lance. Clean laser lance smoothly by soft cloth and blow air from it.

    4] Disable IMAPI Service (Work's in most cases):
    1. Launch Control Panel -> Administrative Tools -> Services .
    2. Browse for "IMAPI CD-Burning COM Service", Right-click on it and select properties.
    3. Chnage Startup Type to Disabled.
    4. Click Apply and Reboot.
   5]  If all the above fails the problem is definitely related to hardware and not software, Go ahead and get your burner laser lens cleaned by a professional.

 Best Of Luck, do post your results in comments.
