Lightscribe cd not recognised

\015 My external samsung SE-204 seems incapable of reading lightscribe codes and so will not burn. It simply won't recognise the cd-R's I place in it although, according to specifications on the box, it should. I have updated all drivers but it's still no go. Can anybody help???\015

Answers :

Hi there.
If its capable of lightscribe then it should have come with lightscribe software so you can use that facility. Have a look in the box for and software CD that should have come bundled with it.

Hi there I just brought a mikomi gp-311a 4 port usb hub for my aspire 5315 laptop (1gb).

Appreciate any help given as im at a loss why this could be happening as i also have a another 4 port hub that is only a 1.1, that i brought from a pound shop and if i add all my devices into that hub and into laptop everything works
