Since installing Snow Leopard when I attempt to burn a label the result is solid black with no gray shading or variegation of any kind. I have reinstalled the LightScribe Labeler 1.5 software, and tried several different templates with no change in the output. Any suggestions would be very welcome.

Thanks Doni, I missed that article and LaCie is saying nothing at all about Snow Leopard compatibility one way or the other. I tried Disc Cover, but for some reason it insists I have to enter my Toast registration and I am launching it from within Toast. Mutter Mumble. I may be forced to upgrade to Toast 10.
Interestingly, Disc Cover's website says the RE version with Toast 9 isn't SL compatible, only the RE version with v.10. Maybe what you're seeing is a symptom of that? Unfortunately I don't have a burner on my netbook and haven't upgraded the wife's Macbook yet (and @ work I have an old G5) so I can't try troubleshooting further myself.

You got it Doni. Last night I gave in and upgraded to Toast 10. Toast worked fine but not Disc Cover RE. Only after I updated to Toast 10.002 did Disc Cover RE work as it should. I probably could have gotten off cheaper buying Disc Cover Standard, but as I refuse to use stick on labels all the clip art would be a waste so I elected the Toast Upgrade.
I like lightscribe because there is no risk of ink bleeding though the cover layers, no stick on label to get unbalanced or jam in a slot loading drive, and I don't have a printer that will print on optical media. Besides that my LaCie Lightscribe drive is faster than the internal drive in my iMac Core 2 Duo.
I just discovered that I had Disk Cover 2 RE bundled with Toast 10. I'm sure that it will take a lot of time before Lightscribe Labeler is updated (if ever), so I was happy to see that there is an update to Disc Cover 2 RE that is SL compatible, version 2.3.2. There is also new host software for the drive, lightscribe.pkg 22.214.171.124 (I got a link to it from another forum, but don't recall which one it was).
I have a macbook pro running Snow Leopard. I bought the Lacie Drive and can't get it to work with the original software... I have delete all the software - or so I thought... I have enmail lacie support and done updates but that didn't work either. Suggestions on what I can do to get a program that works for the lacie drive and SL? What exact steps did everyone else do to get it to work?
