I had the same burner. unluckily it developed more and more problems over time and what you have described above was how it started.
At first I able to make it work again by cutting the power to the burner several times, but in the end I had to replace it.

never had a problem with the burner before in windows, and ive managed to make a data disk, but the ISO is giving me problems

Did you MD5 test the ISO?

justin (jsustin212) said : #8

MDS test? explain please

Instead of asking, why didn't you websearch. This would have saved effort and got things moving along rather than wait for someone to reply. You would have easily found this:

new error, figured out that one .. now ... SCSI error on write(0,16): [3 73 02] Power calibration area is full

Can you help with this problem?
