I have Cyberlink Software, with LightScribe capability, and also LightScribe DVD+R discs,but when trying to burn a video ( to play back on video players), I get "This type of disc is not compatible ..... " or something like that. The HP Pavilion has the internal optical drive capable of writing labels directly to the disc, so I don't understand why I receive the message? Has anyone else the same experience, and solution? geedad
lotvic Thanks, lotvic, I should have stated that it DOES 'print' the label directly, but you may be right about the format. I thought that my LG Super Multi extenal drive would do the trick. I have already bought quite a lot of DVD+R discs, but I am short of coasters! I will probably have to buy LightScribe DVD-R discs in future! Or do they need formatting first? geedad ( The HP also throws up the same message about compatibility) geedad
What model number are your DVD burning drives, I would have thought the Super Multi would be able to burn both -R and +R even if the internal one can't do both. If you have the specs docs for them it might be as well to check, or post the model numbers and can google for specs.
lotvic Just a further addition to my previous posting. The built-in writer brought up the SAME MESSAGE as the External one! The PC came with LightScribe capability, so I will contact HP support about this,and let you know the outcome. geedad
Sorry,Lazarus The 2nd, but I have found the answer to the problem. The very first LightScribe disc that I used in the External writer, was either corrupt or was damaged inadvertently by me. The second one that I tried worked beautifully, both for the burning and the labelling, so I apologise for using up your time. Further digging into the new PC's sofware, I found a DVD suite that gave me the LightScribe software that I needed, part of the Cyberlink suite. Many thanks to you for your responses, and many thanks to all other Forum members. geedad
