Question about Lite On LightScribe (HP640VI) (HP640VI) Burner

1 Answer

Burns blank Hi. I have an internal CD/DVD/Lightscribe drive on my HP running Windows Vista. I am using the SureThing CD Labeler program. Half the time, Lightscribe burns perfectly, and the other half of the time, it seems like it's burning, but when it's done and I take the disc out of the drive, the disc is totally blank. Yes, it's a Lightscribe disc, and, yes, I'm putting it in the right way--it just comes out blank. It couldn't possibly be the design I'm trying to burn, because I tried to burn four identical discs and two of them came out fine and the other two came out blank. Any ideas?

Lightscribe CD Burner


try and reinstall the sonic program if you have it. it sounds like the computer did not have the sonic software on it when you bought it, so it would have been removed when you restored your computer.
