That is probably what your looking for. The driver is probably with the Lightscribe software.
That is the way my HP's were set up.

Have you tried uninstalling the drivers and then running the Compaq search to refind the drivers?
Just making suggestions.
I guess I was lucky on my HP's always found what I needed.

I suppose you already tried the below.

Maybe the Lightscribe software is messed up.
Delete Lightscribe software you have and download the new from Compaq.?
That might be it.
