Also tried Nero, but it failed too. So what could be the reason?

I try to burn a 6,5 GB file. So maybe it's just not possible to burn a file to disc that exceeds the size of one layer ???

And no, the burner is fine. I burned several Verbatim Double-Layer medias with no problem...

Is this a single data file you're burning as a data disk? I believe there's a file size limitation, but I'm unsure what it is.

The "Power calibration error" generally indicates hardware failure. Did Nero's log show the same error?

Exactly. It's one 6,5 GB file, so I have to use a DVD-R Double-Layer media.

Nero failed with error during "Writing Lead-in", so I think it was the same error.

Nevertheless I doubt it's a hardware failure, as I burned a few disc yesterday and they all came out fine (I always enable data verification).

I'd test the file size theory, but I don't want to waste yet another media

Hi!

You may not have wasted ANY of your media. I could br wrong but, I don't believe anything was written to the discs.

I'd suggest you test your theory about filesize by splitting the file...

Unfortunately a short time later it said:

Okay, I'll do so, even if it costs me another media. But I'd highly prefer to keep my movie in one chunk...

Regardless, if you haven't already done so, load it into IMGBurn and see if it says it's no longer writeable.

Then it's not a "single data file", it's a movie.

If that's the case, what's the format?

Whatever - it is not software related. Both Ner0 and ImgBurn report errors. I'd switch to Verbatim, +R, 2.4x, MKM-001-00, Made in Singapore.

Unless your few successful disks burned later were also DL, you haven't completely ruled out hardware. The drive could be failing where it's unable to focus the lens on the second layer but is still able to write single-layer media.

What does the content of the data file have to do with it? Whether he's burning an ISO image of a video DVD or a large MKV movie, it's still a single data file.

Also, on the PC the file will always be truncated because ISO doesn't support over 2GB files. You should use UDF instead if you are burning large files.

Maybe something with this? Why not use SPTI?

That's exactly the kind of discs I have here

It's a MKV file. The original TS file was captured from TV. Then re-muxed to MKV, since I didn't want to re-encode.

But from a burner's point of view it's as much a "data" file as any other binary file, I guess.

So I will spend the day to re-encode the movie to 4,7 GB and then I'll try to burn it to a Single-Layer media...

I didn't use SPTI because I had another ImgBun problem in the past. Don't think the problem is caused by the I/O driver.

Nero uses it's own ASPI driver and it failed too...

I used the UDF filesystem, as no other disc type did allow my to even start the burning with my 2+ GB file

I just successfully used NERO in UDF mode to burn a single 6.08Gb file to D/L Verbatim disc (2.4X Singapore manufacture, burned at 4X).

1) If you have the NERO "InCD" tool (packet writing program) installed, you probably want to completely eliminate it from your system (use the NERO "clean" tool), as it's been noted (for years now) to cause conflicts.

2) Likewise, the "Patin-Couffin" driver has been noted in numerous postings (Do a Googlesearch) to also be a problem causer, particularly if more than one burning program is installed on a system

3) Most likely, however, despite your protestations, is that the "Power calibration" error is telling you that you have a hardware problem

Are you sure that drive / firmware even supports MKM-003-00 properly?

It could just be attempting to use a very generic (2.4x) write strategy and it's failing.

I burned Verbatim Double-Layer media with that drive before. And it worked fine.

But now I got a new cakebox and have yet to successfully burn one single disc. Maybe the discs are bad, maybe the drive is failing. Maybe something else.

BTW: What exactly is "MKM-003-00" and how can use a different write strategy?


@setarip_old: Nope, "In CD" is not installed

I will try to burn the movie to a Single-Layer media, once the re-encoding is completed. 633 minutes left...

MKM-003 is the media ID code. It is 8x Verbatim +R dual layer media. The preferred media is MKM-001 (2.4x). As LUK says, look for a firmware update.

I was burning at 2.4x speed, as I always did for Double-Layer media. Faster speed isn't even selectable.

Code:
I 22:47:04 Write Speed: 2,4x

I'll check for a Firmware update though...


[EDIT]

It seems "B7W9" is the latest Firmware available for my "DW1620" drive, which is the installed version.

Again, the "Patin-Couffin" driver has been noted in numerous postings (Do a Googlesearch) to also be a problem causer, particularly if more than one burning program is installed on a system. You might want to try temporarily disabling it - and (risk possibly wasting another disc) see if either IMGBurn or NERO will then get past the "Power calibration" error...

Don't think "Patin-Couffin" is at fault, as Nero doesn't use it. AFAIK it uses it's very own ASPI library.

And I think Patin-Couffin was installed for a very long time on my system, as it ships with DVDFab. Nevertheless I successfully burned Verbatim Double-Layers not so long ago.

However I will try uninstalling Patin-Couffin too. Just to be sure. But not today, as my encode still takes 191 minutes and I also need to sleep a few hours ^^

Check Where The Disc Were Made...

Verbatims made in India are to be avoided, I'm told. Might make a difference. I've been able to burn Memorex dual-layer disc with ease, until a recent batch and they fail during power calibration. What few of the older ones I have left continue to burn perfectly. Verbatims are the best, but harder to find locally, so I buy Memorex to fill in sometimes...

According to the label on the cakebox, my Verbatim Double-Layer discs are "Made in Singapore"
