#1

Hi,

OK. I got my new Benq1625 after destroying 2 1620… They just died.

Anyways, I had newest nero installed, 6.6.14 and installed drive. No lightscribe. so i downloaded that 3rd party lighscribe softdrivers , no luck.

Then i popped in NERO that came with benq, and upgraded to 6.6.14 again.
Now i have lightscribe, but nero complains it cant read the disc, that i have to clean it or sumthing.

Tried lot of discs same.
Uninstalling NERO totally, reinstall… Same stuff.

Got some CD-COVER-SUITE or something TRIAL, try lightscribe there, works like a charm, so its a nero issue.
Also updated to latest firmware (BBAH or soemthing).

Is there any other lightscribe writing tools ppl can recommend?

THANK YOU!

Surething is the best one I have tried so far. I believe there is a free version @ surething.com. Mine came with my hp 640c.

You need to download the lightscribe engine from either HP or the LS website.

LS = Lightscribe


#7

And offcourse the disks you’re using are all LS-disks?

(i’m asking because you said you tried a lot of disks)


#8

No, I have regular disks also.


#9

Yes, I tried Verbatim DVD+R LS, and CD-R LS …
I tried a few verbs i thought maybe disc was broken

Only this other program work with LS… Nero = No Way.
Same message after installing the LS software aswell.

You are putting the disk upside down to use LS are you??


#11

its the LSI update host giving you the error…go to surething and download the LSIupdater from there…do a search on my nick…i have solved the LS in nero thru some help from ppl at cdrinfo… :D:D

thnx

Correct me if I’m wrong, but I think that Nero 7 just doesn’t recognize that a Lightscribe drive is installed because – surprise, surprise – we’re using a pre-release Nero 7. I uninstalled Nero 7, used the general cleanup tool, then installed the Nero 6 OEM software that came with my new I/O Magic Lightscribe drive. Finally worked.

@eleewhm,

When can we hope to see a firmware upgrade for the 1625? Could you please ask your sources? :slight_smile:

I had the same problem. Nero wouldn’t recognize my Philips DVDR12LS as a Lightscribe drive. But with the latest release, 7.0.1.2, Lightscribe is no problem. There is also no need for additional software, such as LS-host, as it where with the previous version.
