When i try to burn anything using a sony dvd -r disc it doesn't burn


Have you tried using a different burning software?
IMGBurn is a great, free alternative burning solution. Simply download and install it, then open it, and it should automatically detect your DVD burner. Select what you would like to do, then click burn!

My computer does not recognize my hp 557s as a lightscribe compatible device


Hi professa31!
Have you tried installing the Lightscribe software bundle? Their website says that it's required for operation of any lightscribe device. Here's the link: http://www.lightscribe.com/downloadsection/windows/index.aspx?id=810
Also, it appears that there are a bunch of reasons why it may not be detected, most of which are not bad at all. Here (http://www.lightscribe.com/support/index.aspx?id=401) is a list of a few reasons, from the lightscribe website.
Good luck!

The driver is not detected by laptop


Is your dvd drive capable of doing light scribe?: If not, then the driver won't make it work. It takes a special drive to use lightscribe, and it should be part of your CD/DVD burner software. I highly recommend Nero software as the best, more reliable and easiest to use. Also, it the brand that usually comes with New CD and DVD drives.

I can't print label to cd dvd from my dvd unit


Before you can use a lightscribe facility, you must have 3 things, which are, A DVD Drive thats has a lightscribe capability/function, a lightscribe software, and a lightscribe compatible CDDisk.
From what I can see, your drive is not capable, or does not support lightscribe functionality. I tried to check everything about your system model and I discovered that the capability of your DVD Drive is this :
  • Writable DVD formats: DVD-R (6x, DL [double layer]), DVD-RW (6x), DVD+R (DL [double layer]), DVD-RAM
  • CD formats: CD-R (24x), CD-RW (16x)
Which means your DVD Drive does not support Lightscribe facilities.
You can also check everything about your system from this link :

Hope this helps you out.
Goodluck!

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
