This sounds like your jumper setting is not right on the drive. If you have 2 DVD drives installed, make sure 1 is set at master and the other is set at slave.

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

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!

I've just bought one of these for a Mac G4 running


You need to locate a piece of software called Patchburn - but I think that might be difficult now.
This particular vintage mac only worked with the drive that was in it. in order to use a different drive you had to patch the system so that the new drive would be recognised as a burner - that said, it should just work as a player/CD-ROM.
The later Macs didn't have this problem and you could stick a drive in and it would be recognised straight away as a burner. I recently put a LG drive (with lightscribe) into a G5 mac and it worked straight away as a burner/player but I did have to install the lightscribe software.

LightScribe stopped working


its not NEW its , NEW OLD STOCK (NOS)
old lightscribe, drive. the drive that prints labels on top.
NO OS STATED nor any PC stated.. wow.
Lightscribe is mostly not supported now. (read the wiki, on that it dont lie)
obviously and very hard to diagnose.
1-bad drive.
2: bad driver for drive
3: upgrated OS and it dont support this (why post lacking OS)????
4: bad media.

read this.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LightScribe

then at that bottom read HP unstable.
From HP's official site, they started phasing out Lightscribe drives in HP computers in 2011, due to "industry conditions beyond our control."
windows 8, 8.1 and w10 its not supported.
go to HP.com read what your PC supports, with the unstated
by you PC, and unstated OS
tdk and verbatium stopped making them.

not this is dead now
http://www.lightscribe.com/

https://h30434.www3.hp.com/

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.
