View Full Version : Whats a calibration area?

05 May 2004, 04:49 PM
I had some burning problems and i had a power calibration error. that was with alcohol 120%, and i then tried the same project with nero and it gave me a "calibration area full" error

i used a new disk and didn't have any problems, so was that a problem with the disk or something?

thx :bounce:

next time the make and model of the burner involved would be a good idea

The only thing that comes to my mind when speaking of a CD-drive is the calibration of the laser that reads and writes the grooves into the CD. My guess is that the Laser needs to calibrate the optimal position for reading and writing for every disk, since a laser has a optimal focus position. That is caused by the magnetic actuator, which has no absolute measure of position, so it has to calibrate itself to the proper focus.
