Dunno, if its any help to u, but I used to get power calibration errors when my system sources were low (ie ram chips were full) Used to have to refresh page or failing that restart comp.
But looking at your system specs, unless your h/drives are full the only prob I can see is your possibly low on ram?.
If you are using one burner to read and one to burn, whilst doing anything else on comp at same time you are likely to be running out of ram, I find its just as quick to read and burn using same burner and less chance of frizbees
and less demanding on your resources.

Many reasons why you might be getting this error message and it will be a bit of trial & error to solve it.

1) Is your firmware up to date, your burner not recognise your media

2) It could be poor quality media or even a bad batch if you only use AAA

3) It's a good possibility that your laser is dirty and needs a good clean, get a good quality disc cleaner.

Post back if this helps or if I need to put a bit more thought in to it
