LightScribe

Question

I've got an HP Pavilion XP Home SP3. After many attempts to install Creator 2009 this thread was the one which provided the answer. Brilliant! Thanks guys. I just hope the #$^@ program will be worth all the effort. However, the desperate measures taken to finally manage installation now means that as I had to uninstall my previous Sonic installation I have lost my Lightscribe software. I see that Creator 2009 seems to be able to use the Lightscribe drive but I have no idea now how to get things back on track. Any help would be as much appreciated as that already received. Roxio help desk people have been useless so far so I see no point in talking to them!

LightScribe?

 

Pinned post in the How to Usability forum.

 

 

Hi Jim,

 

Yes, I'm sure it was lightscribe. Anyway it is the program which was preinstalled by HP to allow me to burn titles etc directly onto the disks rather than labels. Obviously there is a specific disk for this. I'm reasonably sure that it was part of the original Sonic installation. One member of Roxio support told me that to install creator 2009 I had to remove as many similar programs as possible. Their latest gem is that I dont need to! Bit late now!!! If you look in creator 2009 "make labels" and read the help notes you will find reference to lightscribe. This is why I'm now trying to sort this out.

You shouldn't need the software that came with the pc in order to use a LightScribe drive. You can download and install the LightScribe System Software directly from the Lightscribe site.

Thanks Larry for your remarks. If I simply download the lightscribe how will creator 2009 know to "talk" to that program. It does not at the moment recognise the existence of the drive in question. Will it pick it up after lightscribe is installed?

 

 

Unlucky!!! Even after the powers that be moved this question I found you!

Before ANY burning program can burn a LightScribe label, the actual LightScribe software needs to be installed.

Larry is 100% correct as usual.

 

I just recently experienced Lightscribe issues (it was not recognizing the fact I had a LS burner and was only offering me the option to print a label.

 

I went to LS's website, downloaded their very recent (1/09?) update, and Joy!

 

Good luck.
