    DX-20A3H external light-on lightscribe drive. Burns most dvds okay, but i had not tried lightscribe discs. Just now I got lightscribe discs at fries, hp brand.and can neither burn disc or lightscribe. At least the printing got 30 percent along. The hp dvds all error out after a few seconds, destroying the discs. I've used 8 so far. I took these same discs and burned them successfully on a non lite-on drive, so it cannot be the hp brands fault.

    lightscribe attempts to burn label and after a minute or so the disc ejects and the message displays disc in lightscribe drive not recognized.

Update the lightscribe software. Update the burner hardware. Download the Lightscribe diagnostic software. It will locate the problem and offer to fix it. I had the same problem and the software worked perfectly. It's more than likely a software conflict.

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.

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.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LightScribe

then at that bottom read HP unstable.
From HP's official site, they started phasing out Lightscribe drives in HP computers in 2011, due to "industry conditions beyond our control."
windows 8, 8.1 and w10 its not supported.
go to HP.com read what your PC supports, with the unstated
by you PC, and unstated OS
tdk and verbatium stopped making them.

My dv9000 wont burn any cds. i am not sure why. i have tryed downloading some different software but it still wont do it. i know it can i have done it before. i also have lightscribe and i have used that...


1. Lightscribe needs its own drivers and a labeler like Surething CD Labeler

http://www.lightscribe.com/downloadSection/windows/index.aspx

2. If your HP came with sonic and you installed Nero or something else there is a good chance neither programs will work.

I had the same issues with my lightscribes (2) I thoughtlessly installed Nero without removing the Sonic Digital Media + in my HP the burner no longer worked, I reinstalled both programs after removal. I had to run the Nero Clean Tool first

http://www.nero.com/eng/support-nero7-tools-utilities.html

before the burner would work again.... only with the Sonic though Nero never did anything but mess up my burner, the lightscribe came back after installing the correct drivers, if your lightscribe is very light almost unseeable, then there is a contrast enhancer for the lightscribe
EXTENDED LABEL CONTRAST UTILITY
