HP DVD 740 (not e, not i, just 740), anyway...I do not get the Lightscribe icon in Nero SmartStart and when using SureThing, I receive the error that is the Title of this thread.
Have you installed the Lightscribe Host Software from the Nero Supportsite??
Could i ask what lightscribe means? I've seen some blank media with that term.
LightScribe is an optical disc recording technology that utilizes specially coated recordable CD and DVD media to produce laser-etched labels. LightScribe was invented by Hewlett-Packard and licensed to numerous hardware manufacturers, media manufacturers and software developers. Although currently limited to PC DVD/CD drives, HP has ambitions to make LightScribe present in consumer electronics products such as stereo-component CD recording decks and set-top DVD recorders ...
Could you provide a link.....I am not finding what you are speaking of.
Thank You....The Hostsoftware worked.
Hi, I have a LiteOn SHM-165H6S04C drive and I have installed the lightscrive service (confirmed that it is started), and I have tried 3 different programs (Nero, LS Direct Disk Labelling, and Sure Thing). All of them give me a no detection message. I have successfully burnt a DVD to make sure the laser is in working order.
I also checked everything at http://www.lightscribe.com/support/index.aspx?id=488
Despite ticking off everything on the list, the thing still won’t be detected
Hey, can anyone help me? my computer has made lightscribe discs fine before, we figured out how to use the software and have made about a dozen or so of the discs. Now all of a sudden I’m getting the error message posted in post #1. Please let me know if there’s any suggestions. Thanks!
Thanks anyway…we got the problem solved by clearing the registry. No help needed now
sorry for hijack, but does anyone know when will they update lightscribe specs to actually make it faster!
i hate waiting 30 minutes for a stupid label, usually i just use printable media and it only takes about 20 seconds.
I just used the “LIGHTSCRIBE DIAGNOSTICS UTILITY” free from Lightscribe and it solved the problems I was having. Go to:
and check it out.
