Had to roll back my computer now i cant find the install disc for my hp 940d dvd need the nero and light scribe disc any info would help


If the DVD-writer was factory-installed, then you can contact HP, and order a replacement CD that will contain the NERO and LightScribe software.
Cost will be under $20 for the CD, and about $20 for courier-delivery.

Or, instead of NERO, access http://www.MajorGeeks.com
and download "Ashampoo Burning Edition 6". It is _free_ software.
Version 9 of the software is better, but it's not free.

I don't have any substitutes for the LightScribe software.

Cant get lightscribe to work does not see my dvd burner as a lightscibe burner


  1. Clean Drive: w. commercial cd/dvd cleaner + air compressed can with narrow pipe inserted into device to reach lens.
  2. Update your 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 pane 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

The Drive you purchased is a SATA interface, the system you have uses Parallal ATA IDE interface.

You need to get a Drive with an IDE interface for that system.

Super allwrite the writer


Hi,

Ok so the problem is with dvdplayer not reading the discs right?

Load a disc and listen.Does the player make squealing noises or is it totally quiet? Squealing noises may indicate that the player is trying to synchronize with the disc but can't due to an obstruction on the lens or in the laser path inside the pickup or a defect in the pickup. This can also be caused by an intermittent signal problem due to a faulty ribbon cable.

Totally silent means that the photo sensor is not getting any usable input from the laser at all, meaning that the pickup is "blind" for lack of a better word.
This can be caused by an obstruction of the beam by foreign matter on the lens or inside the pickup all the way to a marginal or failed laser diode and/or photosensor array. This can also be caused by a bad ribbon cable with one or more severed traces.

You could try to clean the optics. This is the most common malfunction as far as i know in all disc players. It would involve taking the cover off and finding a way to expose the lense, and then cleaning it with a very gentle brush. some players have a cover for the lense that swings to the side during playing, this greatly reduces the chance of dust accumulating, but its still worth the try.

If you actually see dust on the lense, then its just that simple. clean, close, play.

It may also be worth your while to check on the small shafting that guides the carriage of the laser pickup. Dirt, grome, dust and solidified lubricant can cause stoppage of the carriage and the laser eye then fails to read the next track.

If the problem does not get solved then you have to get it repaired or replace your dvd player it is a defective one.
