Re:Lightscribe support missing...

Posted by: Anonymous Coward on September 07, 2006 04:20 AM
My understanding is that HP will not release the information necessary to support lightscribe.

I believe Nero for windows needs the lightscribe system support software in order to Label a Lightscribe disk. In other words, Neros lightscribe capabilities are dependent on closed source binary bits that nero does not control. So unless HP releases the information necessary to control the lightscribe feature, there will be no lightscribe in linux, open source or closed.
