Go into the BIOS of the system to make sure it sees the drive, if not there is an issue either with the drive itself or the controller on the board. Try pressing the eject button when the system is on to see if the drive is receiving power, if not, the motherboard has a defect more than likely

HOW DO I DOWN LOAD DRIVERS FOR A LIGHT SCRIBE DVD WRITE ABLE /CD RW DRIVE. MODEL # GSA-H3OL


Hi...

If your LG LightScribe drive will not need drivers to work as a 'normal' DVD drive as this function is Plug n' Play.

BTW - You have a great drive there... I have GSA E10L and a GSA E40L - Both fantastic drives...

However to use LightScribe you will need both:

1: LightScribe System Software
and
2: LightScribe Labeling Software.

You can download the System Software here:
http://lightscribesoftware.org/lightscribesystemsoftware/

And FREE LightScribe Labelng Software here:

Happy Scribing...

Lightscribe dvd drive won't work. the eject command does not make it open either. seems to be jammed. if i break it down can it be "unjammed" without ruining it?


Actually it's probaly just got some dust or something in it. What you do to manually open it is take a needle, thumb tack, or safety pin and simply insert it into the tiny hole above the eject button on the dvd drive itself. You'll feel the tip of the button when you push the pin into the hole then it will pop the door and the drive will open properly. This has gone on for cd/dvd drives for years. Usually just the cause of dust or what have you being stuck in the mechanism.

I would like to install a lightscribe drive , can it be put into the hot swop carrier space witch i don't use


Yes you can add the lightscribe drive to your system as long as you have an open pay (slot) to hold it. If you have a desktop tower, then most likely you have a slot available either right under or above the current dvd/cd drive.

Just make sure your lightscribe drive has the same interface (SATA or IDE) as your current drive or you might need some cable adapters to make it work.

If your system uses IDE (little metal prongs or pins where the cable plugs into the back of the dvd/cd drive) then you want to set the jumper pin on the back of the dvd drive to CS for cable select. If there is a cable ribbon going to the current drive it will have another connection open that you can use for the new drive. Normally the cable ribbon will allow you to piggy back the two drives.

SATA is the latest technology so if your current drive is SATA, and your lightscribe is SATA then look at the two cables that go into the dvd drive already installed. There might be another set that is not being used that you can hook to the lightscribe drive. If so, hook the set to the back of the drive and into the slots on the motherboard.

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

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!
