    Question Communication error with a LightScribe drive

    Hello to everybody.

    I have installed Ubuntu 9.04 in my PC with a lightscribe DVD driver (concretely a HP DVD1070).
    When I try to burn a label I always receive this error:

    A communication error has occurred with the LightScribe drive. Please restart your PC and try the label again.

    I has download and installed the lightscribe software:

    And I am using the Lacie LightScribe Labeler.

    I has tried to reboot the system, use the Lightscribe Simple Labeler program, reinstall the Lightscribe System Software but wothout any result.

    PD: The problem apears during the burning process (between 30-50%). For this reason I know the hardware is ok (when I used windows I didn't have any problem but I don't want return to the Bill Gates system).

    Any idea?

    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?
