If your device can read the cd then windows has the drivers.Nero is just software to burn dvd's. In fact, Nero is really useless, that installshield is incredibly badly designed. Easiest solution would be to either download it (I'm assuming you have internet otherwise you wouldn't be on here) from the manufacturer's website (they usually offer it) or from fileplanet or something. If you can't read a thing from the hard drive then go to the manufacturers website and search the hardware code (it will say this on it someware...that really long name). Then its as simple as just installing the drivers =) Easy as pie. I had the same problem. Screw nero.

I've installed my lightscribe dvd/cd burner the only disc that came with it was nero 7 essentials i installed that but i cant get it to run the lightscribe when i put the disc in on the side to burn a cd...


You need to use a disk made for Lightscribe. Lightscribe technology was developed by HP.

Look at your local store that handles CD's, and DVD's, and look for the Lightscribe disks.

DVD Drive corrputed


Hi there,

the installation of the webcam shouldnt have affected the drive atall. Try uninstalling the webcam first of all, and then see if the DVD drive is working again. It may be a coincidence that it has failed, at the same time as installing the webcam.

Something you can try if you have windows XP:

To check the health of the DVD drive, go to start>control panel>Administrative Tools>Event Viewer.

click on "system" from the list on the left of the window, then click "type" to group all the events, errors, and warning. check to see if you have any messages such as "CDROM" Device CDROM0 has a bad block. (something like this). Thats always a sign that your cd drive is on its way out.

If the CD drive still works but just cant play movies (but can read all other files fine) Then i'd try using different software to play the files. Try VLC player from videolan.org, which plays all file types.

I hope this helps

Software problem


Nero needs to be uninstalled (using Nero Clean Tool) and then reinstalled after you have added a new lightscribe DVD drive. To correctly uninstall Nero go to Nero website to download Clean Tool application specific to your version of Nero. http://www.nero.com/nero7/enu/Clean_Tools.html
