Re: Lightscribe error

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.

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.

Hi, the lightscribe is a great feature, its part of the nero software that should have came with the liteon dvd-rw. if you go into nero you should see a lightscribe label part, just click on that and put the disc unside down, and you should be good.

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.
