I have the samsung r510 running vista. My question is I can see lightscribe sofware on it so i went & got some lightscribe discs.Now when I have created the disc template and insert the disc laptop says no lightsribe drive found! Is this right? If so how much and from where can i get the right drive & is it easy to install.Thank you in advance.

this is a fairly good laptop - lightscribe unless I have missed something major is a technique for printing on the reverse side of a cd or dvd which is lightscribe enabled by a printer with the correct fitting for a cd/dvd and the correct software.

howard64 - For lightscribe you need a lightscribe discdrive see click here

Shinda I cannot work out from the specs whether your version of the R510 should have lightscribe or not. Is the software part of the Cyberlink suite? If so it may have been part of the package but not linked to a drive. It may not be easy to change the drive.

The caddy should have the Lightscribe log on it, right hand side.

The lightscribe system does not involve a printer at all, the image is burnt onto the CD/DVD by the software. Are you sure you have put the disc the right way round.

Many thank for replying.Woolwell iI posted the same question under a different heading as i was not getting a reply, sorry for that. Also i have had a look at the lightscribe website and it points me to this click here I can not see the sensor on my drive. Looks like if i want to carry on with this I will have to buy an external drive. Many thanks to all who replied. Consider this subject closed.
