Hi
Ive just installed Windows 7 on my desktop computer but when i try to burn a disk i keep getting "Power callibration error" I have checked for the IMAPI in services but it isd not there. I also have the same problem on my laptop...IMAPI is not there either, my laptop is running Vista.. it just stopped working all of a sudden.

Do i need to download IMAPI from somewhere?? Ive looked everywhere but cannot seem to find it or any info on it if its missing

Any help at all is much appreciated

I checked the knowledge base, but did not find a version of the IMAPI installer for Win 7. Just XP and Vista. Theoretically, you should have no troubles using the (bit~correct) Vista version for Win 7 if you're pressed.

The support site is being wonky (this is news!?!?) but the KB for XP and 2003 is: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/932716

Before doing that, you might want to try opening an elevated command prompt and running: sfc /scannow This will take a while, so choose a time when the computer isn't needed and you have other things to do. This'll tell the OS to find, and potentially repair, the issue itself.
