OK,i have lightscribe dvd and i've downloaded some software for it from lightscribe.com. all worked fine until i tried to label one dvd disc.when i opened the nero cover designer and made my changes for the label i clicked print lightscribe label as shown in the guide for lightscribing and in the window it showed my dvd with the preview of the disc that is to be labeled,but when i tryed to print a msg appeared "No disc in drive.Please insert a lightscribe disc into the drive." ?!?

my question is must i have special discs for lightscribing or it's just a problem with the software ?

yes you must have special Disks for lightscribe. Usually they are gold in Color which is the special coating, and usually cost slightly more than standard CD /DVD's, and have the words Lightscribe on the label.

Or you trying to label the wrong side of the CD? You need to flip the CD to scribe it. One side for data and the other for your scribed image.
