Re: Communication error with a LightScribe drive
I have the same problem with my HP Pavilion dv2000t's LightScribe drive. Unfortunately I gave up on LightScribe due to this issue and the cost of LightScribe discs, so I don't have a solution.
It's the exact same issue: a failure contributed to communication error that usually occurs at 30 to 50 percent done, although sometimes as late as 90 percent (very frustrating). I believe I managed to burn maybe 1 or 2 discs out of 10 or 15...
Funny enough, I had an issue with the drive on Windows as well, with the burning crapping out halfway through in a similar manner. Maybe my problem is a hardware issue?
