You can get colored blank discs, but the Lightscribe only "prints" in shades of black. You will need to get Lightscribe compatible discs, which are just like "normal" cd's / dvd's with the exception of having a special coating on the one side.

You can visit Lightscribe's website for complete tutorials.

LightScribe is older technology that takes half an hour to make a two toned disc label. It is ok for very plain labels but not too good for anything really creative. I had one and stopped using it because the labels were sometimes very hard to read because they were too light to see easily. I switched to a DiscPainter because it prints disc labels in full color and only takes one minute to make.

Lightscribe is a technology used to put Label on your Disc instead of marking the CD/DVD with a marker pen you can directly burn the Pic or text on the CD/DVD.

Can you please tell me what kind of CD-RW DVD=ROM Drive I need to buy to replace the broken one in my HP Compaq Presario SR1610NX Desktop and where? Thanks


Since you have a desktop this is very easy. Take the side covers off after unplugging it. Remove the ROM drive and note where the plugs are disconnected. Take it down to walmart of radio shack, best buy...etc and they will help you with another. Most all of them are compatible and pretty cheap. Should be a snap to put it back in as instructions come with the new unit. I wish the best of luck with you and thanks for using FixYa.

I have a HP Photosmart Premium C309 printer. How do I print directly on a CD? Is there a template available?


I checked the printer specs to be sure there was not some new technology I had never heard of out there, you never know. Your HP Photosmart Premium C309 printer does not support printing on CD/DVD disks, and as far as I know there is no printers that will.

What you need to print on a CD/DVD is a LightScribe CD/DVD burner. You will also have to buy special printable disks to use with the LightScribe burner.

Hope this helps

Hi there,

If you just google eBay and go to their site, type "HP Pavilion A720N Lightscribe Multi Drive" and you should have a good selection of choices. Simply duplicate the process for the other drive. I would suggest you keep your dealings with members who have a rating of 100% next to their name and you should have no problems. They will also usually be happy to help make sure what they sell you will be 100% compatible.

I buy almost all my replacement parts there for all my customers.

Regards,

Marcus

Any brand-new CD/DVD reader/writer with LightScribe *WILL* be compatible with your HP.
Check whether your "power" and "data" cables are the "old" style (white power connector and a 80-pin ribbon-cable) or the "new" style (thin SATA cables), before you buy a writer with the "wrong" (PATA versus SATA) interface.

Hi. I need to purchase a DVD burner for my Compaq dc7100 and need to know what brands will fit my computer. Thanks, **** P


I've checked on the specs of dc7100, and it shows that it has multibay optional for 12.7mm removable drives .

I've difficulties finding the exact DVD compatible for dc7100 since it seems that it's already been discontinued.

However, these are the closest match that I've found. Kindly click to double check the specification if it matches your computer:

HP Multibay DVD+RW Drive
HP Slim 8x SATA supermulti LightScribe Drive

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.
