I've seen this same problem with tons of different people all over the web on various forums, but none of the solutions mentioned seems to be working for me. The problem is that Nero applications simply do not show lightscribe options at all if it thinks you do not have a lightscribe capable drive. For some reason, Nero continues to do this, even for some people who DO have lightscribe drives. I've updated Nero, the lightscribe drivers, uninstalled and reinstalled Nero, checked every tutorial, FAQ, and guide I can find on both Nero and Lightscribe's websites(as well as unofficial sites), exhausted every option I can find, and nothing has worked. I know my drive is fine, because it works flawlessly with the lightscribe simple labeler, as well as Roxio software. Does anyone have a clue why Nero is so buggy with lightscribe, and what a possible REAL solution to the problem might be?
