How to LightScribe

 

 

There are usually two routes by which someone comes to the question 'How to LightScribe' and these are: 

 

  1. You have just bought (or are thinking of doing so) a replacement or add-on LightScribe DVD drive to augment your existing PC or Laptop.  
  2. You have an existing HP or Compaq machine with a LightScribe DVD drive already installed.  

 

The problem is however that ‘straight out of the box’ your new LightScribe drive will not work… That is to say it will not produce LightScribe labels; so the question becomes, how to make LightScribe work?

 

The fact is for most people new to LightScribe there seems no easy way to do it. 

 

So, if a LightScribe DVD writer on it's own is not enough to create LightScribe labels then what is needed? 

 

You will need all four of the following...

LightScribe Software IncludsA LightScribe Enabled DVD Drive

LightScribe Software IncludsLightScribe System Software 

LightScribe Software IncludsLightScribe Labeling Software 

LightScribe Software IncludsLightScribe Media (DVD's or CD’s) 

 

All four of the above components must be present for you to be able to successfully produce LightScribe labels.  In fact if even just one is missing then you will remain 'LightScribe free...'

 

This section on how to LightScribe will cover an introduction to each with further in depth articles exploring LightScribe Hardware, LightScribe Software and LightScribe Media. 

 

Enjoy...

Steve,  

 

I received the toolbox CD yesterday and Thursday night I burned the first label to a CD. 

 

Burning the label was easy, even for a novice like me.  Everything I needed was in the toolbox. 

 

I am excited about being able to burn directly to the disc!!  No more paper labels for me!!  

 

Thanks for such a priceless toolbox.

Steve,

 

I got the software and it works great, I love it. I made 2 CD’s within the first 1/2 hr after installation.

 

I couldn't be more happy. 

Thanks for the great price too, nowadays money is tight, but 17 dollars for software that includes so much, and so easy to use is worth every penny. 

 

Thanks again. You can quote me if you want.

Dear Steve,  

 

Got your product. WOW works great and sooooo easy. Best 17 bucks I have spent in a long time.

Hi Steve 

  

Thanks for helping me out. I now saved the link in my favourites as you had instructed, and have successfully loaded the software.

Thank you for the professional site. It was a really great experience to see something so easy, direct and informative.

 

The “Big Guys” have missed the point on customer service. You really have hit the mark.

Hi Steve,

 

Thanks for the GREAT product. It's products like yours that make using my computer a lot more enjoyable!

 

I was burning my first LightScribe disc label about 20 minutes after I got home.

 

Thanks for the disc tip, the next time I buy disc, I'll be sure to get Verbatim.

Hi Steve

 

Like you I was expecting to simply use Nero 7 to print LightScribe Labels but oh no!

 

Now thanks to yourself and this superb software I am merrily printing away.

 

Many, many thanks and keep up the great work.

Product is great; worked exactly as advertised.

 

Money well spent. I’ve been making labels all afternoon. Thanks.

Steve,

 

I installed Vista, lost Light Scribe, and could not figure out how to get it back in, even after getting a firmware update for my cd/dvd drive.

 

Installing your stuff put the driver back in and now even my Nero software finds it.  Thanks a bunch!

Steve,

 

Thanks for the email. I have not had a chance to scour it all, but I was able to create a quick disk that looked awesome, so thanks for everything.

 

Your toolbox has everything anyone would ever dream of needing to make some awesome LightScribe labels, I just loved it.

 

I personally think its well worth the investment, 100 times over.

Hi Steve,

 

I purchased your software and a LiteOn  20x DVD RW Dual Layer Super  Drive.

 

Your software works just great and the LITEON drive burned a magnificent image right out of the box, first try! I couldn't be happier.

Thanks a million.

I just want to let you know that I received the CD.  I had no problem installing the software.

Thank you for the refund of the LS Download.

It's a pleasure doing business with you. I’ll pass the word around.

Thank You!

Steve,

Your software works simply awesome!

I burned a pretty complex background and it was so simple.

I can't wait to get more elaborate with it!

I will recommend this to anyone I know with a lightscribe drive!
