Windows 7: Lightscribe: disc reading problem (when burning label)

Windows 7 Home Premium x64
Lightscribe: disc reading problem (when burning label)

My drive is: LG GH22LS50
My Discs are: Verbatim DVD-R 16x Lightscribe

I don't have any problems burning the data. But when I burn the lightscribe label it gets a little tricky.

I'll but the disc in the drive (label side down) and close it. And Most of the time the drive will read the disc and never understand what it is. The light will just keep blinking, and I am unable to open the drive tray to take it out. If I try to burn the label the lightscribe program will freeze.

If I restart the computer (and take the disc out), and retry again, most of the time it will work.

I'd rather not have to restart my computer every time I want to burn a lightscribe label.
