Lightscribe Samsung sh-w162

  Geraint J 20:08 15 Feb 2006

I have just installed this drive and the nero software that came with it. I cannot find anything in the nero software that refers to lightscribe ???? Printed on the disc that came with the drive it lists the software, Nero Express 6, InCD 4, Nero Vision Express, Nero Backitup, Nero Showtime, Nero Recode and Nero Lightscribe. But no matter where I look I cannot find any refrence to Lightscribe ?????? How the heck do I access this feature and use it ?
Any help please.

Are you saying it says Nero Lightscribe on the disk you got with it but you can't find lightscribe on the disk to install it, is that what you mean?

Yes it says lightscribe on the disc but it doesnt give an option to inslall it in the program, should it be a seperate program or is it intergrated in anothe nero program ?

Any burning software will burn data to a Lightscribe disk, but you do need Lightscribe enabled software for burning the label.

So burn your disk as per normal then go to your labeling software for burning the label, as far as I'm aware Nero will do this, but I use Surething v 4.5 which is a free download click here

Nero 6 should handle it; click here

The lightscribe only appears in Nero cover designer as this is what you want it for. If it's not there you need the host software from Nero, downloadable from ahead. de, just put lightscribe in the search box and it will appear.
Sure thing is loads better, if you can get an OEM version of Nero lightscribe edition they include Surething 4SE. The lightscribe will only appear in cover designer if you have a lightscribe enabled burner.

Thanks I will try these sugestions. The drive has the lightscribe logo on the front, so it should support the feature.
