Failed to Calibrate the Laser Power?

November 30Hits:0
I tried burning a MP3 CD from my 12" Powerbook G4 (867Mhz) running 10.5.1 and got the following error:
The attempt to burn a disc failed. The device failed to calibrate the laser power level for this media
Has anyone ever seen/heard of this? I tried a search on the keywords and didn't find anything.


I have similar problems. CDs nearly never burn no matter what make they are. Most of the time CD-Rs don't even get recognised and even if they do they only burn properly about 30% of the time. Same with DVDs. The only DVDs that never fail me are Sony. All other brands give errors or don't get detected.
Disk Utility usually gives me the 'laser power level' error and Toast gives me various error codes. Weird thing is that the problems only started a couple of months ago. Before that I didn't have any problems burning CDs or DVDs. Once they are burnt (on another computer) my MacBook Pro recognises the CDs and DVDs fine.
