    Same thing, except it never worked once.  HP suggested different software, re-installing, etc.  I knew I was going to have to swap it out.  I did just now and BINGO!

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:
http://lightscribesoftware.org/freesoftware/windows/

Happy Scribing...

You can purchase an external CD/DVD burner with lightscribe to work with your macbook, but macs do not have lightscribe built in.

I don't know how to copy the item from a DVD and burn to another DVD. Would you explain? Then, How do I write on the DVD? it's light scribe.


I'd like to suggest information directly from the manufacturer of LightScribe - HP,
(Don't forget to use HP LightScribe disks. They are the only ones you can use to burn to, and use the label marking feature)
