Kerwyn emailed me back and it looks like the Nero Updates where not apporved by HP .Seeing that HP controlls the Lightscribe specification it looks like Kerwyn isnt too happy about it either .I also asked him if HP had rolled back a version becuse Surething is shipping 18.104.22.168 also .Anymore Questions you want me to ask him .
I am working on resolving these inconsistencies. All I can tell you at this point is that my version is the latest "approved" version for the applications and hardware I currently ship and that I have NEVER rolled back my update. I have asked my engineering team for an explanation for the Nero version (what is different).
