Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Recently purchased HP dv9600 fitted with pioneer dr-kd08hb cd/dvd burner. The HP also came with Lightscribe control panel installed, & the cd/dvd tray had the lightscribe logo, so i downloaded software etc. but computer kept telling me no drives found. Further research indicates this model pioneer cd/dvd is not lightscribe capable. The cd/dvd is working fine otherwise. Any ideas/comments? Cheers!

You are correct in your finding on the drive, but understand too that all bezels for these drives interchange along with the drives themselves. There are only a few differences in the rives for all laptops. Mostly the differences are the rear mounting tab where the screw holds it from the bottom of the case, the front design bezel and the interface , the part that hooks into the motherboard. Other than that, one drive from one computer will fit another, All you have to do is change the rear mount and bezel and there you go. As long as the interface is the same....ide vs sata.

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.

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.

HP DV4000 Series not detecting newly installed DVD±RW LightScribe


The type of CD/DVD recorder is suppose to be automatically detected by your Plug N Play portion of your BIOS. Reboot and press the "F" key combination that will bring up the boot process as opposed to the CMOS Settings. See if the correct DVD model shows up as one of your boot electives. You may be able to change it in that window. If not then reboot to BIOS and change it there.

PC didnt detect the lightscribe function


  1. Clean Drive: commercial cd/dvd cleaner + air compressed can with narrow pipe inserted into device to reach lens.
  2. Update you sw from http://www.lightscribe.com/ (Control panel, diagnostic tool, application)
  3. be sure service is started: as Administrator go to Control panel/Administrative tools/Services
    double-click on Lightscribe Service, and if it says disabled change it to automatic, then "start service" in the left panel. If is already started and set to automatic stop and restart it you don't have to reboot to see results.
It worked for me on HP6710b with internal drive and with liteon external burner
