I just purchased a new HP DVD1070i drive and installed it without issue.
It Burns and reads CDs without issue, but gets an error "Print process failed. A communication error has occurred with the LightScribe drive."
It shows up after it says prepairing to print and gets to 40% fairly quickly and then pauses 2 seconds then shows the error message.
So far I have tried moving the drive to a different port
Removing my other drives except for the HP 1070i drive and my HD with the OS on it.
Removing and purging both Nero and the lightscrive host software and reinstalling.
Tried Nero 9, 7 and Surething lable writer with the same issue for each
Removed all Virtual drive software. (i.e. PowerISO, daemon tools) No change
Tried talking nice to it and putting happy Discs into it. No change
Tried yelling at it. No change
Tried ignoring it. No change
Running out of ideas. Please help!!
OS: Vista x86 ultimate
MB: Asus SK8V

Sorry, forgot to add that in the initial statement. I installed latest lightscribe update as well.
Also tried disabling all the startup programs to see if one of them were interfearing. No change.

Do you have any new info on making your drive work with Nero 7 - I have one installed on my computer and can't get past the first screen w/o an error message. I have tried ALL of the above solutions and still no cooperation - yelling really doesn't help.
Help - - Anyone ? ? ?

Was this problem resolved? If so how? I just purchased the HP dvd 1170e with lightscribe and everything works fine except the burning of the lable never seem to be completed. I see the image, but it is only about 50 % complete. After it goes throught the entire burning it indicates that there was a communication problem with the burner.
