Lightscribe appears to be discontinued by HP. As an alternative take at a look at:

CDBurner - Lightscribe

Lightscribe Download

What operating system do you have? According to the software descriptions listed by Svol the lightscribe software is intended for use only up to Vista.

I also haven't used my Lightscribe drive for a while but your inquiry made me try it - and it didn't work in W7 64 ! BUT downloading and running the LightScribe Simple Labeler from click here got it running in that program and SureThing CD labeler.

I'll try it in W10 and let you know if it works there.

I ran the Lightscribe download and LightScribe Simple Labeller worked perfectly in W10 Pro 64. I did have to install SureThing CD labeller in XP SP3 compatibility mode but that now also works without any problem on my Optiarc AD7621S DVD RW drive.
