The LightScribe-enabled CD/DVD disc drive contains a special laser that pumps light into this label to create whatever designs you have created. The light from the laser causes a chemical change in the dye coating that shows up as a visible point on the disc.
The best way to add this to your new computer is to buy a Lightscribe external drive that connects via a USB port.

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!

HOW DO I USE LIGHTSCRIBE? I HAVE A NEW LAPTOP WHICH HAS LIGHTSCRIBE BUT I DON'T KNOW HOW TO USE IT


To use Lightscribe you must get a Lightscribe CD or DVD. If the CD or DVD is Lightscribe compatible, just go to your programs menu scroll to Lightscribe and it leads you through the process. It's a user friendly software.

Direct-Disc Labelling


It depends on what kind of labeling you would like to achieve.
If it's lightscribe, then you could either purchase an external drive to achieve this and connect it through USB.
Or there are Lightscribe drives for laptops now that you could remove your current drive, and mount the surround from that to the new internal drive.
Thses days laptop DVD drives are fairly standard and are changed between laptops with the addition of the outer plastic shell that just unscrews.
The shell will also include the adaptor to go between the laptop drive and the laptop itself (much like a laptop hard drive)
