I have Windows 7 and a Sony Vaio VPCSA but I never could write a DVD. I can write a CD but when I try to write a DVD with Nero it just fails with a hardware error. I bought new blank DVD+R and still the same error. I try with another program to burn an ISO file and still I get hardware error.

What can be done? The log from Nero is

Is it Dell or Sony Vaio? Which model? –  gronostaj May 31 '13 at 17:36

Could you burn DVDs before this issue? Or is this the first time it has occurred? Based on the model, it looks like the drive supports DVD+R. –  TheFlyingToaster May 31 '13 at 18:01
    
Thank you for the replies. I updated the question with the relevant answers to your questions, the model name and what I'm trying to do. –  Niklas rtz Jun 2 '13 at 0:53

Can you tell us how many programs installed on your laptop to burn the DVD's? –  avirk Jun 2 '13 at 1:50

From How To Fix "Power Calibration Error" While Burning CD/DVD :

Their could be several possible reasons and solutions for the above error, basically what is happening is for some reason the CD/DVD burning software is unable to determine the Optimum Power Calibration rate (a small pre-burn test to determine optimal laser power for writing), resulting a disk burn failure. There is no easy way to pinpoint the exact reason, so try all the possible fixes from top to bottom (easy to hard) and see what works:

  • Try using different brands of quality blank media, most common reason for such errors is cheap blank media
  • Try burning at lower speeds (Highly effective)
  • Disable IMAPI Service (Works in most cases)
  • Try updating or changing your CD\DVD burning software to the latest version
  • Try upgrading your writer's firmware
  • Clean your burner laser lens by blowing real hard into the device, or by using a cleaner CD, or get it cleaned by a professional.
  • Change to a higher-quality burner

You may need to get DVD-R disks. Check the specs on your DVD drive and find out if it can burn both - and + DVDs. It may only take the -R.

I would try to burn this DVD using lower speed and see if that helps. And what DVD brand you are using ?

May be this link will help you.
