Creating a LightScribe Label
Burning a label with LightScribe is easy.
To start, you need to run LightScribe-supported labeling software. The label software often can be launched as a separate application that is included with your data burning application suite. Depending on the labeling software you use, you can create a label before or after you burn the disc content.
NOTE: To burn a label, you must flip the disc over and place it label-side down in the drive tray.
NOTE: LightScribe labels are monochrome (grayscale) only.

Labels can be a simple title, or you can get more creative by adding backgrounds and images. The capabilities will depend on your labeling application. The following step-by-step instructions will help you create your first simple LightScribe label using various LightScribe-supported labeling software. Refer to the documentation of each application for details on all of the available features.

Im having trouble with my drives it wont read the cd or burn the cd or dvd


Hello there,

If your LG SecurDisc 20x Internal Double-Layer DVD RW/CD-RW Super Multi Drive w/LightScribe does not read disc, burn cds or dvd, then it means there is a problem with the lens of the LG SecurDisc 20x Internal Double-Layer DVD RW/CD-RW Super Multi Drive w/LightScribe.

You will have to replace the LG SecurDisc 20x Internal Double-Layer DVD RW/CD-RW Super Multi Drive w/LightScribe or have the lens replaced.

Be sure not to use the LG SecurDisc 20x Internal Double-Layer DVD RW/CD-RW Super Multi Drive w/LightScribe to watch movies as that weakens the lens easily.

Hope this helped.
Goodluck

A freind let me borrow their hp dvd 1040e external 20x multiformat dvd writer. i can burn the music on cds fine with itunes, but i cant figure out how to use the litescribe to burn images on the tops....


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!

I don't know how to copy the item from a DVD and burn to another DVD. Would you explain? Then, How do I write on the DVD? it's light scribe.


I'd like to suggest information directly from the manufacturer of LightScribe - HP,
(Don't forget to use HP LightScribe disks. They are the only ones you can use to burn to, and use the label marking feature)

What does "multi layer support" mean. Does it write multi layer discs? or is it able only to read them? Also, what is a lightscribe?


Multi-Layer support means the drive can Read/Write a Dual-Layer discs.

Lightscribe means you can create a label on a disk.

I just bought a HP dvd1170 DVD duplicator and I can't get the LightScribe to work. The Lightscribe Control Panel says no devise is found. Did eveyting I can think of.


Hi, HP use Sonic software to burn CD and work with the CD DVD writer. If burn CD using Sonic soon as the CD burn complete the CD will auto matic will eject just turn the up side down and push it back you can burn the text or image to the CD label. I have 3 HP desktop and that's the way I used to burn CD and Lightscribe labeling.

Macbook wont work with freecom dvd lightscibe pro firewire


Hi:


I know exactly how you feel, since the lightscribe feature is great, but the lightscribe software is pc and not mac compatible, though the burner will work up til that point in the process on a mac.

I solved the problem by using an external dvd burner on a spare pc which will accommodate the installation software for lightscribe and burn and create and decorate the dvd.

I have yet to try a possible solution involving a Core Duo and combo Mac/PC Operating system since I still use an old iBook G4 to create videos but if your Macbook will accommodate both types of OS then you might try using the lightscribe software installation disk on your macbook in pc mode as a windows application.

Let me know if that works for you

I am trying to figure out how to use the lightscribe DVD's, how to put a graphic on the DVD?


As long as you have a lightscribe drive it's really simple. Burn the disc as usual, put in upside down, ie label side down and using the lightscribe program burn you image to the disc.

See the www.lightscribe.com site for the latest program and templates etc etc.

We use ours all the time and it is like magic, especially if you use colour lightscribe discs.
Cheers, Rob

THIS DID IT TO ME 3 DAYS AGO.  I'M NOT SURE HOW IT CAN JUSR DISAPPEAR AFTER USING IT, BUT IT DID.  WHEN I WENT TO BURN THE LABEL IT REDIRECTED ME TO THE WEBSITE TO DOWNLOAD A GENERIC LIGHTSCRIBE.  I HAVE A DVD ISSUE NOW AND UNINSTALLED THE PROGRAMS THAT CAME WITH THE WRITER AND MY ORIGINAL LIGHTSCRIBE REAPPEARED!  I DON'T REMEMBER THE WEBSITE, BUT TRY A SEARCH FOR "GENERIC LIGHTSCRIBE"
