I have an ASUS BC-12B1LT optical drive on my desktop computer. As far as I know, it is the same as the BC-12B1ST except it has Lightscribe support.
About 3 - 4 months ago I was still burning lightscribe labels fine, and I had actually bought a large stack of LS compatible discs.
I haven’t burned any discs in a while, and now I find that I cannot write lightscribe labels the LS System software says “no lightscribe drives found”
After digging through my device manager It seems that my computer has downloaded the driver for BC-12B1ST. Thus everything works fine EXCEPT the lightscribe functionality. I tried deleting and restoring the driver but windows keeps choosing the driver for ST rather than LT.
Asus webpage doesn’t offer a manual driver install either.
Even though LS is being phased out, the functionality is still very important to me, and I would at the very least like to use up the rest of my LS compatible discs I have stocked up. Is there a way to force LS system software or to trick it into accepting my drive as a LS Device even though the wrong drivers are installed?..
or even better, if someone can locate the correct drivers for a manual install that would be great as well.
