Windows 7: Lightscribe won't write disk label

This is an odd problem. Just checking, what firmware version does the drive have? You can check it in Device Manager and on the Details tab of the drive Properties dialog select Hardware lds from the drop down list; on the right it should show a number. The latest for your drive is ver. 1.01. here under Drivers & Software.

Spare?

Now would be a good time to have a spare drive to install and try out.

Can't check now, but the LG autoupdater told that there's no newer available, I barely remember.

That's the reason I can't check right now - this morning I pulled the drive out and shoved it back to the store that built my machine, along with one of the discs.

Now the testing is on them - I presume they just exchange it. They only didn't have one of 'em on the shelf.

I'll keep you informed ...

Greetings

Do you have to use Lightscribe disks? I have a stack of dvd's that are made just for lightscribe. Can you use lightscribe with any disk? Ive never actually used it but have a lightscribe drive and disks. Just need to hook it up!

Yep

The disk has to be light scribe disk. The back side of the light scribe disk is special.

Yes - you need discs especially made for Lightscribe. Those discs have a laser sensitive coating and some kind of identification and sync code around the hole.

No chance wth "standard" discs.

Some news - got the drive back from the dealer - he'd tested it and it worked fine ... he burned one of my Verbatim discs with a test label.

Any further hint ?

What OS did his test machine have?

What programs did he use?

Did he also have ashampoo installed?

I'm asking just to get a feel for the difference between the two systems.

Haven't seen the machine - he told me it's the same as on my machine Win7x64pro

Original Lightscribe system software ("LSS") and the original Lightscribe simple labeler.

I presume not to. Since I get to the Lightscribe dialog from every software I've tried, I suppose that's not the problem ...

No problem with that. The primary info from that is that the drive itself seems to be "not guilty". There must be a configuration problem on my machine.

Just for info: I'm runnig Comodo Internet Security Premium V5.8.213334.2131, but the problem resists even if I deactivate all functions of it. Windows firewall is disabled.
