Adding LightScribe DVD Writer to my Envy 700-060ea

I have opened my machine and had a quick look with a view to adding a LightScribe DVD burner and although I can see plenty of plugs to provide the power, I can't see any data (sata) connectors to plug into the second drive.

There are four sata ports on the Kalil motherboard of your desktop PC.

You will have to buy a SATA cable to connect between your new LightScribe DVD Writer and an unused port. You can buy them at any electronics shop, including your local Walmart.

Well I used a sata cable from the old machine.

It plays a DVD ok with sound.

It burns data to a CD-R disc ok

But, when I try to use the LightScribe function to label a disc, it just comes up with a communication error (4224).

I have installed the drivers for LightScribe etc :-(

 

Running Windows 8, i7, 16Gb etc.

I took the drive out of a Dell Dimension E520, it was working fine in that?

Did the Dell have the same OS installed as in your Envy AIO Desktop PC?
