Create LightScribe LSI images on Windows XP

Hello everybody,

Because a lot of our clients are using Windows XP and they encountered a lot of problems, I decided to make this short tutorial about saving LightScribe images ok sso you can use them with your duplicator.

1. First of all, before installing the LightScribe software, please make sure you log out of your user and login as Administrator, otherwise you will encounter issues with the LightScribe Host Drivers .

2. Insert the CD you received with the duplicator, in the optical drive of your computer, and run LightScribe Setup_ IDESelected_ v20.exe

3. Check I Accept, click Next, enter your identification details and the product key (you find it printed on the disc), click Next.

4. Next windows shows you two panels with drive models. On the left there are the supported drives, on the right panel you have the drives you selected (“your selected drives”). Remove everything from the right panel, excepting the DVD LightScribe burner model that your duplicator has (in this case, you will leave there only the LG GH22LS50, or Sony AD7241s). If you are not sure that your drives are either LG GH22LS50 or Sony AD7241s, you can ask our tech support, but at least for the moment, the LightScribe towers are shipped with these two models, because they have no compatibility issues with the controller cards. Then click Install.”

5. While installing, other small programs will install too (the LightScribe host software, the actual LightScribe service that is needed in order to be able to burn LSI images).

When everything is installed, please restart your computer and run LightScribe Template Labeler.

6. In the first screen of LightScribe Template Labeler, select a template for your disc. When everything is done, click Next > . On the second screen, you can customize the template as you wish, add pictures, add text. When everything is done, click Preview and Print .

7. Another window will pop up , the LightScribe Print Options. Chose your contrast level and disk background, and then click Print. You will get a window called “LightScribe image (.lsi) file destination folder . Navigate to the location in your computer where you want to save your image file, type the name of the image file, and click Save.

8. For the next step, you will need to burn the image file you just created to a blank disc. Do that using any burning program, and burn the .lsi file as any other data .

9. Insert the disc you just created in your duplicator’s source drive (usually the first drive, counting up to down), then make sure that drive is selected as Source drive (navigate through your duplicator’s menu to the Select Source option, and chose Channel 00 ) .

10. Navigate to second option, Print, press ENT, then the name of the lsi file will be shown on the duplicator’s display. Confirm the selection by pressing ENT , and then you’ll get the “Waiting for blanks” message. Insert ONLY LightScribe discs, with the label side facing down (so the data side facing up, backward as you usually insert a disc into a drive), and again confirm with ENT.

11. The printing process will start.

I hope this will help most of the people who encountered problems with the LightScribe technology drivers over Windows XP.

How to use your Duplicator's SmartUSB and Hard Drive

Hello everybody,

1. Turn on your duplicator (WARNING, if it’s the first time the duplicator recognizes the Hard Drive, it’ll ask you if you want to partition and format your hard drive, select the size of partitions according to your needs, if you want to burn DVD’S select DVD, CD for CD’s , and so on..)
2. Install the Image Manager software from the CD you received with your Smart USB option.
3. Go to Menu 12 (USB Mode) and chose YES if the message on the display is “USB Mode Switch to On?” then wait for duplicator rebooting.
4. VERY IMPORTANT!!! If you don’t have Menu 12- USB Mode in your menu, press and hold for about 3 seconds the “esc” key on the duplicator controller, until the 13th menu appears, then navigate using the arrow keys to the 13th option in this menu, called “USB Option” and switch it to ON. After that, you may do what’s on step 3.
5. If you succeeded in step 2, you can open Image Manager and you’ll see all the hard drive partitions, and copy/delete images to/from them.
6. After that, if you want to burn the images now in your hard drive partitions, navigate to Menu 12 (USB Mode) and switch it to OFF, wait for rebooting and then navigate to Menu 8 (Select Source), where you can chose the hard Disk as a source drive for duplicating (listed as let’s say WD2500YS – if your hard drive is a 250 GB Sata Hard Disk).

Light Scribe StandAlone tower duplicator 1 to 9 target live test

Hello everybody,

Test: Tower 1 to 9 targets Light Scribe Standalone duplicator

We tested a new duplicator today, this time it’s about a LightScribe machine. The good thing about LightScribe is that’s the cheapest way to print your discs , because LightScribe uses a laser-ray to print directly to disc in monochrome tones, but with graphical capabilities . Although, if you want professional printing, we sugest a cd/dvd pro printer. You can check our eBay store for that .

Below you can see the video from today test . Enjoy.
