More Samsung Lightscribe Issues

Hi

I just bought the samsunf w162l lightscribe drive. Installed the nero 6.0.0.17 express that it came with, but then changed to nero 7. The drive is not listed for lightscribe burning.

I tried to install the host software but still no luck.

Any help or has anybody gotten nero 7 to work?

Thanks
WDA

The drive is recognized as DVD-Burner but not as LS drive?

Try this change in registry:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\allocatecdroms

Change parameter from 1 in 0 and reboot your PC then LS should work.

Hi m8

Just checked, it is already set to 0.

Thanks for the suggestion? Anything else to try?

Thanks

Check all the registry settings for "allocatecdroms"
I have found it 3 times

So, use “regedt32” -> Search for “allocatecdroms” and change all of these to “0”
