    I have tried the one that they included and even bought a pack of new dvd+r lightscibe dvd's and still I can't get the darn thing to work. I am talking to hp now. I have a feeling I am wasting my time with their support staff that is located in India.

I don't think the Lightscribe drivers are on the supplied HP disk. After 9+ hours with HP help (oxymoron) I finally went to www.lightscribe.com and got the drivers myself. They also had some really nice templates also. All free. Once I did that it worked.

Ink won't dry on lightscribe


You need special absorbent coating on the printable DVD's if they are suitable for that. Are you sure you can print on the sort you have usually they are all white. It also must actually say suitable for PC printed labels etc too.

CAN NOT PRINT LIGHTSCRIBE LABLE


Your problem is posted under the LG CRD 8521B CD-ROM drive category. That model of CD drive isn't a LightScribe drive, so it can't print LightScribe labels.

Use lightscribe drive from laptop


I assume you want to use that drive so you can use it to label the CD/DVD you create. All you have to do, is create the disk on your laptop and then insert that very same disk upside down into the Lightscribe drive on the other computer and label it.

What does "multi layer support" mean. Does it write multi layer discs? or is it able only to read them? Also, what is a lightscribe?


Multi-Layer support means the drive can Read/Write a Dual-Layer discs.

Why dosnt my hp C4380 print disc labels in roxio creator 9


Hi ChasAtPark -

Can you please clarify how you are unable to print disc labels? Can you print in other applications? Do you have your latest drivers for your printer? Are these paper labels or lightscribe?

Also, you can submit a free web-ticket here (must be registered) if you prefer one on one support.

Thanks,

Jon

Won't print lightscribe label


okay, this may seem obvious, but i had the same problem, when it dawned on me, the label side has to be down. It's like when you think your lawnmower's broken, when it's actually only out of gas
