“No Lightscribe Drives Found”

If you are having difficulty getting your LightScribe drive recognised within Windows XP (despite installing the latest software drivers), it may be worth checking that the “allocatecdroms” registry key within “HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon” is set to “0”.


Alternatively, this can be set within the local group policy (or indeed the domain policy) by DISABLING “Computer Configuration\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Local Policies\Security Options\Restrict CD-ROM access to locally logged-on user only.”
