I just completed my testing with Nero Burning ROM and Nero Express interfaces using an HP 540B Recorder and TDK CD-R and Verbatim CD-R LightScribe media. And I can not find any problems. I'll attach the screenshots from one of my write attempts with a Verbatim LightScribe CD-R media.
And I tested with our latest Nero 126.96.36.199 software.
You do make sure that under Nero Express's MORE->Configure->LightScribe that you have the option 'Always print LightScribe Label' enabled? By default this should be enabled. And that you have the latest LightScribe API installed using the below link?
(For US, Canada, and Mexico only)
Or fir the Rest of the World use the below link.

If you are sure you have done all of the above, then I'll have to create a Bug Entry and have our QA team in Germany test with your exact model Recorder to confirm if this is an issue just with that model drive and our software. Are you working under Windows XP or some other OS?
