Hp 740 lightscribe not working

I have an HP 740e drive that I made several lightscribed disc on. I have tried everything to get it working. It is about 2 years old and used very little. Uninstalled/installed many times and gave up on it since I needed the disks for a party. I went and bought another HP Lightscribe 1040e and used the same disks that it said could not be read and am having no trouble with it. It says the disks need to oriented etc. and there is no good reason for it to not work. I even used the cables from the new one/thinking it could be in the wires. What would make it quit writing? Can I do something to it (other than throw it out)? Thanks-Flo

Does it write data OK but not scribe??

Possibly it's just dusty after years of sitting. Get a foam swab or long q tip and wet with alcohol a little, and clean off the laser lens inside. Carefully. Or use one of those disk-based cleaner thingies.

When I try to burn a laber I get a message that the lightscribe drive is not recognized (520) the disc chbn@comcast.net


Try reading a disc from it. If that won't work, your drive is dead. Try upgrading your drivers, or upgrading the lightscribe software.

Dvd 740b not reading blank discs to burn on


NO PC stated dang. laptop or desk?
internal DVD drive or external HP solds all 3.
NO OS stated. windows? Windows what>?????
no real DVD partnumber stated only the usless
front bezel number 740.
if yours is marked 2001,, its going to be a big problem. 9 years past HP support.
and all old drive are weak now or scratched optics.
and drives that old were even full of bugs then
(we an link you to 10,000 pages showing that)

why not upgrade it.?
get a new drive and new fresher OS.
windows 10
and a nice new blu-ray burner.
and move on.
or if this rig (PC)
is 2001 why not go to GOODWILL
and buy a 2010 PC< for like $25
and i bet it works 10x better.

HP DV4000 Series not detecting newly installed DVD±RW LightScribe


The type of CD/DVD recorder is suppose to be automatically detected by your Plug N Play portion of your BIOS. Reboot and press the "F" key combination that will bring up the boot process as opposed to the CMOS Settings. See if the correct DVD model shows up as one of your boot electives. You may be able to change it in that window. If not then reboot to BIOS and change it there.

I am trying to figure out how to use the lightscribe DVD's, how to put a graphic on the DVD?


As long as you have a lightscribe drive it's really simple. Burn the disc as usual, put in upside down, ie label side down and using the lightscribe program burn you image to the disc.

See the www.lightscribe.com site for the latest program and templates etc etc.

We use ours all the time and it is like magic, especially if you use colour lightscribe discs.
Cheers, Rob

H.P. Photosmart C8180. Lightscribe disc supplied fails to be recognised by drive,therefore unable to print label or record onto disc. Also. Do I purchase Lightscribe discs or - ?


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.

HP DVD 740e wont burn Dual Layers anymore!


Try re-installing the software associated with the burner, so it installs the necessary drivers and files needed for the burner to work according to your needs.

Also check the connections and cables... sometimes moving it around causes the cables to loose some contacts.

Hope this helps...
