I get this message when trying to burn DVD's"Device failed to calibrat

Whenever I try to burn DVD's I get this message "device failed to calibrate the laser power level for this media".

I cleaned the lens, tried different Dvd's, changed the language settings to no avail. It can read them (most of the time), it can read Cd's fine.

Anyone can help me?

I recently had the exact same problem with my 2007(ish) MBP. Did some research around the web (and iFixit, of course) to find some solutions and all I needed to do was reset the PRAM. Followed the steps, popped in a blank DVD, burned a few .MOV files to it and all is well again. Check the instructions here:

Hope that helps!

I had the same problem, but only with double-layer DVDs. Since I hadn't tried burning these too ofter, over 2 yrs passed before I actually tried burning one of these for the first time. Each time, no matter what brand the blank DVD-DL was, I had the calibration error message.

I called Apple Poland (that's where I'm from) and - behold - they told me they would replace the drive with a new one free of charge, even though I was already past the warranty period.

Maybe this is what you need to do, too - even though your problem pertains to all - I assume - kinds of DVDs, not just the DL's.
