    Default The device failed to calibrate the laser??? also a medium writing error...

    I have a 2007 17" MacBook Pro
    2.4ghz
    MacBookPro3,1
    SMC Version: 1.18f2

    The Optical Drive is:
    MATSHITA DVD-R UJ-85J
    Firmware Revision: FBZ8

    Ok after that, here is the problem I am a problem as you can see with my optical drive giving me these errors: The device failed to calibrate the laser and medium writing error when I try to burn any type of dvd or dvd dl. I have tried Disk Utility, Toast, DVDRemaster and some other applications that I can't remember the name of. I was able to burn DVDs before but for some odd reason I now can not burn anymore. I have tried several types of dvd brands even studio quality dvds that my buddy gave me from the local tv station. I can write cds from toast and itunes. figured i would throw that in if someone asked. anyways. I have also taken compressed air and blown out the drive but still no luck. So I am asking someone please help me with this let me know what I need to do. Thanks in advance

    If you use Time Machine, I would wipe your hard drive and recover to a date when you could.
    I can almost guaranty your drive went bad.

    Yes...
    Is it still under Apple Care? If so, I would scream for a whole new MBP!
