OK - sifting through 10,000 posts about lightscribe, but here's another one - sorry.
Upgraded to Vista Home Premium from XP, and I have an HS-H182M with Lightscribe. The ODD worked great when I had XP, and now my lightscribe software (Nero 7 as well as Trial Sure Thing) won't recognize that I have any Lightscribe drives at all. Yes, I downloaded and installed the Lightscribe system software as well as the firmware update for the ODD, but no such luck. This is driving me crazy!
The device manager shows a generic, Microsoft-signed driver for the ODD...any ideas?
