If your HW is correctly installed: logged as Admin,

  1. Control panel
  2. Administrative tools
  3. Services
  4. double-click on Lightscribe Service, and if it's disabled, change it to automatic, then click "start service" in the left hand pane in services, and you don't even have to reboot. If it's already started and automatic: stop and restart it.
It worked for me after all software updates from http://www.lightscribe.com/

My computer does not recognize my hp 557s as a lightscribe compatible device


Hi professa31!
Have you tried installing the Lightscribe software bundle? Their website says that it's required for operation of any lightscribe device. Here's the link: http://www.lightscribe.com/downloadsection/windows/index.aspx?id=810
Also, it appears that there are a bunch of reasons why it may not be detected, most of which are not bad at all. Here (http://www.lightscribe.com/support/index.aspx?id=401) is a list of a few reasons, from the lightscribe website.
Good luck!

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.
