Yes, let it install. Your laptop has the capability of taking light-scribe CDs and DVDs you can buy at Best Buy or other places and you can learn to use the software to burn cool stuff on the discs you make.
After you burn something to one of those discs, you open the drive, flip the disc over and use light scribe to burn titles, info and graphics right on the disc.
Have had this issue in the past with Lite-On in particular. Stop gap measure was to uninstall and reinstall to get it working temporarily. It seems the life span of Lite-On isn't all that great. Best of luck.
Hi! You could try other burning software that is compatible! try looking at the originator of litescribe www.hewlettpackard.com or Windows Homepage for litescribe compatible software for Vista.

To the best of my knowledge (and I'll admit I have two LightScribe drives in my systems but have never yet used that capability), Windows has nothing to do at all with LightScribe. That is a feature of the drive itself and requires additional software to do the special burning. As far as Windows is concerned, the drive is merely a standard IDE or SATA device, and can be used as any other non-LS version. I know the drives I bought (Sonys that came from tigerdirect.com) came with CD's that I assume have the needed software on them, but I haven't bothered with them. (I have a big pile of regular printer labels to use up first.)
A Google search for "lightscribe programs) turned up lots of links, so there should be plenty of free or cheap programs to check out. That should get you scribing.
well u need to check for the latest software available for your dvd drive try and find the latest software on net according to your company,and check wether the software ur using comaptible with ur windows
I Have had this problem as well. First, go to nero's website, and download the latest version for your edition I know that if you use Nero 7 if wont work without the update. Also, check and make sure that you have the latest drivers and firmware for the drive, as this can also cause it to not be detected. Also, try a different Litescribe program, and see if it works that way.
In these drives there are two lasers and two pick-up sensors. Normally in a combined head. One set is used for the DVD and the other is used for the CD. From you description it sounds like the optical sensor for the CD laser has expired! When you place a CD into the drive a small amount of information is read by the drive that identifies the disc type, manufacturer, it's status, capacity etc. If the drive cannot read this then it thinks nothing is present.
If you insert a disc does the LED on the front the the unit flash a few times while it spins the disc. Does it do this repeatedly? If it fails to read the disc does the LED stop blinking and the drive no longer spins the disc? If this is the case then your drive may indeed be faulty.
