    I hope someone can help

    I am trying to transfer and burn my video footage from my camcorder. I have tried analogue footage and digitial footage but I keep getting the follow error message at about 25% of the burn process

    POWER CALIBRATION FAILURE

    This only happens if i try and burn more than 20 mins footage, upto 20 mins and it burns ok from either analogue or digital.

    I have tried using ULEAD Video Studio 8 and Pinnacle 9 but still get the same problems.

    Also any ideas why Pinnacle takes so damn long to render? its almost 10 times as slow as the ULEAD software.

    I am using Firewire to to the capture.

    Has anyone come across this?

    Assume you're using a PC recorder? If so what model; how old? It may be a buffer under run issue. Have you tried burning at x1 speed?

    If the drive cannot handle the data being sent to it a firmware update might help. If its a bit long in the tooth then maybe a new one?

    Thanks Philip,

    I have also read that it maybe a media problem. I will try burning at a slower speed. Its Pioneer drive not sure what model.

    Just another piece of advice from my own experience.

    I wouldn't use Pinnacle to burn the DVD. Instead, select the option to create the image on hard disk and then use a dedicated program, such as Nero, to burn the DVD.

    I've found this to be a more reliable method.
