Is Optiarc AD-7560A Lightscribe or Not?

I have a Compaq C713NR Notebook I bought about a year ago, and I could have sworn it was advertised as Lightscribe compatible when I bought it. The notebook is loaded up with all kinds of HP Lightscribe software, also.

I remember not caring that the DVD drive could write labels, because I have had many Lightscribe drives before, and never used the Lightscribe ability because Lightscribe discs were so much more expensive than regular.

I finally got a good deal on some Lightscribe DVDs, and went to burn a label, but my Lightscribe software said I had no Lightscribe drive installed.

I updated my Lightscribe software and downloaded their Utility to try and solve the problem, but still no Lightscribe drive was found.

I tried other labelling software, but they did not detect a Lightscribe drive either.

The Optiarc AD-7560A is a difficult beast to find any info on. Does anyone know if it actually is or is not Lightscribe capable? Thanks for any info. :iagree:

According to the Service manual available on HP website, this computer has several options for optical drives (depending on the model). A lightscribe optical drive is one of several options.

A Google search for “AD-7560A spec” reveals some spec sheets for that drive (and its Sony sibling). None of them mention Lightscribe.

The specs for your notebook model doesn’t mention Lightscribe either.
