    is it better to have data on the cd before you use the lightscribe or can you use lightscribe before you burn the data

    Same here.

    Flip a coin on what you want to do first. (Generally, I burn the data first then the label because I've been known to burn to the wrong labeled disk.) :p

    I agree.
    Since it takes so long to burn a lightscribe label, burn the data first, and make sure you get a good burn. It would be a shame to burn the label, and then get a coaster, when you tried to burn the movie.
    At least it would be a good looking coaster! :eek:)

    sometimes Roxio interferes with Nero and visa versa....... uninstall Roxio and then try again. good luck.

    You might need to "refresh" your lightscribe driver. Go here to update the driver. There is also a diagnostic utility there to diagnose common installation problems.

    Oops, I see you already have the utility.

    FYI, to make you images visable, edit your IMG to lower case.

    Kinda looks like a hardware error.

    How old's your burner?

    I'd still try reloading the lightscribe driver.

    This might sound stupid but are you remembering to flip the disc when you go to burn the label?

    What make & model is your drive?

    Did you do any upgrades to the computer at that time? OS, programs, etc.?

    Hmmm,

    Just so happens to be a new Lightscribe System Software update from Sept. 6th:

    File name LS_Update_1.10.13.1_.exe
    File size 6.0 MB
    Revision 1.10.13.1
    Release Date September 06, 2007
    Notes Program code structure revision. New drive support.
    Requirements LightScribe enabled drive, media, and labeling software also needed.

    It's located here.

    I found this reference under "known issues" at www.lightscribe.org:

    Vista Upgrades

    Date logged: March, 2007
    Known Affected Platforms: Windows Vista
    Symptom: Some customers are encountering broken LightScribe functions after upgrading from a previous version of Windows to Vista. These customers are also unable to install newer version of the LightScribe System Software (LSS) updates to fix the problem.
    Cause: The LightScribe System Software was corrupted during the Vista upgrade. Root cause is still being investigated.
    Recommended Resolution: If the Vista upgrade is completed, you will need to uninstall the LSS and reinstall the most recent version. The Uninstall utility and the LSS can be found in our Downloads page. If the Vista upgrade has not yet been done, please uninstall the LSS by locating the following file, "\program files\common files\lightscribe\LS_HSI.msi", right click, and choose "Uninstall". After the Vista upgrade, install the latest version of the LSS either from your hardware/software provider, or from our downloads section.
    Known versions affected: Windows Vista


    Are you running Vista?

    I'm starting to think that your burner is failing. Is the computer still under warranty?

    LightScribe uses the burners laser to digitally "etch" an image into the coating on special LightScribe discs which you will need to buy. As you might have guessed from reading this thread, you will need special LightScribe software to do it, but if your burner supports it, then chances are you have some already!

    I believe that to be mostly correct anyway :)
