Lightscribe problem

  iscanut 09:45 13 Feb 2008

Have a new pair of Samsung Lightscribe units in machine. Have updated Light scribe software and using Nero 6. I cannot get it all to work. I design the label, select Print Lightscribe Label option, the drive(s) show in the available list and a message bar shows as preparing the disc. It then ejects before doing anything and asks for a disc to be inserted. Nothing I can do will get it to write to disc. I am putting the CD/DVD in the right way up ( upside down!). Has anyone any ideas as to what I am doing wrong, or not doing.

You are of course using "lightscibe" writable DVD's, and not ordinary common or garden DVD's?

I think you have the answer as I did not realise one had to use "special" Light scribable media. Have been using bog standard DVD R. Thanks johnny & ambra4.
