Re: 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.

My dvd not writing but read

There can be several reasons for that. Try to use Nero software if you are using LG SUITE. Also the DVD write speed and format has to match that of your writer. Ate you copying another DVD or writing data or edited media such as movie video or music files? Check compliance format.

You will need Nero burning software. It will after the normal burn show you a screen where you place the image you want to burn for lightscribe. Another failing with lightscribe is that you must have lightscribe discs!

    Had to roll back my computer now i cant find the install disc for my hp 940d dvd need the nero and light scribe disc any info would help

    If the DVD-writer was factory-installed, then you can contact HP, and order a replacement CD that will contain the NERO and LightScribe software.
    Cost will be under $20 for the CD, and about $20 for courier-delivery.

    Or, instead of NERO, access
    and download "Ashampoo Burning Edition 6". It is _free_ software.
    Version 9 of the software is better, but it's not free.

    I don't have any substitutes for the LightScribe software.

    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
