Need help with lightscribe engine
Hi, I was able to make one lightscribe disc. Then I tried again to burn another one and it told me to place a lightscribe disc in which there was one in the computer.
So I tried upgrading the software and Now when I try and burn an image on to the lightscribe disc, I keep getting an error that says there is a problem with the lightscribe engine.
I don't know what else to do can someone help please..
Hi latinlady910 !
I've been labeling since 04/08, but my system started acting funny a few days ago. I basically worked through a bunch of Errors and now when I labeled a few more disks everything is working fine.
Here is what I went through and the steps I took.
I'm using an HP Pavillion dv9825nr Notebook PC, running Windows Vista Home Premium SP1+.
I also have an HP PhotoSmart C8180 All-In-One Printer. Both have built-in LS Drives.
Everything has been running LSS fine since 4/08.
I had 2 Instances of the LS TL running;
The one which had the highest percent done got a 4231 Error;
Both labeling processes stopped;
I rebooted the system several times;
I ran both the LS_Update and the Diagnostic Install in repair mode and rebooted the system again;
The DU would "Not Respond" until I popped the tray in my system out and pushed it back in;
The DU would not recognize the media in my printer's drive until I popped the tray out and pushed it back in;
The DU would not recognize the drive in my system until I told it to "Scan for LightScribe drives and media" again;
I tried to restart the First Instance (the one in my system) and got a "(520)" Error saying there might be dirt or a smudge on the disk and to wipe it;
It gave me the options "Help" "Cancel Print" "Try Again";
The "Help" option brought up the "Troubleshooting" webpage;
I wiped the LABEL side (nothing had been burnt) and selected "Try Again";
The burning process started again;
I waited until the First Instance finished;
It finished successfully;
I restarted the Second Instance;
I got a "(4225)" Error;
It gave me the options "Help" "Cancel Print";
I selected "Cancel Print";
I restarted the Second Instance again;
It restarted successfully;
I waited until the Second Instance finished;
It finished successfully;
I started 2 new Instance again both running at the same time;
They both finished successfully;
I started a new First Instance when the Second Instance was at 40%;
The Second Instance finished successfully and was shut down;
The First Instance got another 4231 Error, but was left up until the Second Instance finished successfully;
Only a small portion (about 10%) of the label had been burned;
I rebooted the system and wiped the LABL side surface;
I restarted the LS TL and selected the same LSL File and restarted the burning process;
It started burning and got beyond 10%;
It finished successfully.
The effected disks were Memorex LightScribe V1.2;
The drives got "hung-up" possibly due to dirt or a smudge on the LABEL side surface;
Wiping the LABEL side surface with a dry cloth helped "fix" the burning problem;
As several Users on the Forum attest, it appears most of the problems in the LightScribe Template Labeler seem to happen in the burn process.
