Hi folks,
Discburner is refusing to burn an mp3 disc: it initialises, appears to burn first track, then spits out disc with an error message "can't calibrate laser power for this media".
Media is 700MB disc; tried two, same result.
Patchburn doesn't help either.
What am I missing ?

That usually translates as "this optical drive is stuffed....."

You could try different brand disks with a different program (such as iTunes), but don't hold your breath.

Try burning at a slower speed.

I'm using ITunes; have tried slowest speed; no problem burning .aiff and other data on these discs.

Maybe I'll reinstall ITunes....// later: that seemed to do the trick
