Lightscribe cd not recognised

My external samsung SE-204 seems incapable of reading lightscribe codes and so will not burn. It simply won't recognise the cd-R's I place in it although, according to specifications on the box, it should. I have updated all drivers but it's still no go. Can anybody help???

Hi there.
If its capable of lightscribe then it should have come with lightscribe software so you can use that facility. Have a look in the box for and software CD that should have come bundled with it.

Assuming you are running XP or Vista, click the link below. Scroll down to find the "Fixit" button on the page. This is a patch Microsoft has created to accomodate those having issues with external devices. Best of luck!

I have a Superwritemaster dvd/cd duplicator with lightscribe capability. But I can't get the lightscribe to work. Help!


>You need to install the drivers for Lightscribe; if you don't have them Google Lightscribe HP and you should find them on the HP website. Then you need a disk label burning program that runs Lightscribe. Droppix.com has a good one, I think HP also has a basic one.

Hi,
Welcome to Fixya. You don't need a driver since the mac computer was able to recognize the DVD and CD's. If you want to use the DVD writer to burn images on a blank cd you need to use a burning software. Can you please try use the software below and see it if will work.

Please let me know if this will work or not so that we can continue troubleshooting. Thanks

My Windows 7 does not recognise the dvd writer 740e


i understand completely. i have the same external device. if yours is an external device, simply unplug the power that supplies the dvd rom, while your system is running. and it will detect, but once you shut down and reboot you wil again need to turn the power off and then on again on the HP DVD 740e this is not to annoying at least it works right? well it does for me in my win 7 64 bit home premium. i have not found any driver or other solution. i just power off and on the DVD ROM and it then detects, sorry i cant help any more.

I've just bought one of these for a Mac G4 running


You need to locate a piece of software called Patchburn - but I think that might be difficult now.
This particular vintage mac only worked with the drive that was in it. in order to use a different drive you had to patch the system so that the new drive would be recognised as a burner - that said, it should just work as a player/CD-ROM.
The later Macs didn't have this problem and you could stick a drive in and it would be recognised straight away as a burner. I recently put a LG drive (with lightscribe) into a G5 mac and it worked straight away as a burner/player but I did have to install the lightscribe software.

LG GSA E 40 L External dvd writer not recognised


you may be having conflicts with usb devices. try temporarily removing all unnecessary devices from the usb ports. unplug and then plug the drive back in. you could try another port. if all ports are in use, then unplug another device, like the mouse and plug in to that port, then plug the mouse into the writers port. i had a similar problem with a wireless usb lan that stopped another device from being recognised. when i removed the lan and replugged the unrecognised device, windows recognised it. i obviously had to use the wireless lan, so i swapped that with the mouse and it worked.

I have a HP media centre pc, which has a lightscribe DVD writer/CD writer. It will only run certain cd's, most of the time it will not recognise there is a disc in the drive. The drive will start up,...


unfortunately it's a sure sign your drive is faulty, the noises are the laser trying to read the tracks, cd's can be easier read than dvd's because the tracks are wider apart, whereas dvd's data is packed tighter together and the reading is more difficult for a faulty laser, you will need to replace it or buy an external usb writer.
