LightScribe Basics


If you are new to LightScribe labeling you maybe unaware of what is required for you to be able enjoy its great benefits over 'traditional' pen and sticky labels to 'label' your discs.

Below is a brief introduction to the three necessary components of a successful lightScribe Set-Up.

LightScribe Drive and LightScribe Logo

 

LightScribe DVD Writer

To create LightScribe labels no ordinary DVD writer will do...

Oh no! You must have a LightScribe Enabled DVD Writer.

HP and Compaq install these as standard but for other systems you will need to add one to your existing PC/Notebook using an after market Internal drive or External USB drive.

 

If you are unsure if you have an existing LightScribe Drive look for the LightScribe Logo on the front of the drive.

LightScribe Media

 

LightScribe Media

Once again LightScribe labeling also requires specific LightScribe DVD's and CD's.

These have a particular coating that allows the LightScribe drive to 'burn' the label design directly into the surface of the reverse side of the DVD/CD.

 

 

 

These now come in 5 colors as well as the 'original' Gold.

In addition to a LightScribe Enabled Drive and LightScribe Media you will need special LightScribe Labeling Software.

In my humble opinion, the best LightScribe software on the market is of course the...

LightScribe Toolbox Premium

Well you did not expect me to recommend something else, did you...:)

Steve,  

 

I received the toolbox CD yesterday and Thursday night I burned the first label to a CD. 

 

Burning the label was easy, even for a novice like me.  Everything I needed was in the toolbox. 

 

I am excited about being able to burn directly to the disc!!  No more paper labels for me!!  

 

Thanks for such a priceless toolbox.

Steve,

 

I got the software and it works great, I love it. I made 2 CD’s within the first 1/2 hr after installation.

 

I couldn't be more happy. 

Thanks for the great price too, nowadays money is tight, but 17 dollars for software that includes so much, and so easy to use is worth every penny. 

 

Thanks again. You can quote me if you want.

Thank you for the professional site. It was a really great experience to see something so easy, direct and informative.

 

The “Big Guys” have missed the point on customer service. You really have hit the mark.

Hi Steve,

 

Thanks for the GREAT product. It's products like yours that make using my computer a lot more enjoyable!

 

I was burning my first LightScribe disc label about 20 minutes after I got home.

 

Thanks for the disc tip, the next time I buy disc, I'll be sure to get Verbatim.

Hi Steve

 

Like you I was expecting to simply use Nero 7 to print LightScribe Labels but oh no!

 

Now thanks to yourself and this superb software I am merrily printing away.

 

Many, many thanks and keep up the great work.

Product is great; worked exactly as advertised.

 

Money well spent. I’ve been making labels all afternoon. Thanks.

Steve,

 

I installed Vista, lost Light Scribe, and could not figure out how to get it back in, even after getting a firmware update for my cd/dvd drive.

 

Installing your stuff put the driver back in and now even my Nero software finds it.  Thanks a bunch!

Steve,

 

Thanks for the email. I have not had a chance to scour it all, but I was able to create a quick disk that looked awesome, so thanks for everything.

 

Your toolbox has everything anyone would ever dream of needing to make some awesome LightScribe labels, I just loved it.

 

I personally think its well worth the investment, 100 times over.

Hi Steve,

 

I purchased your software and a LiteOn  20x DVD RW Dual Layer Super  Drive.

 

Your software works just great and the LITEON drive burned a magnificent image right out of the box, first try! I couldn't be happier.

Thanks a million.

I just want to let you know that I received the CD.  I had no problem installing the software.

Thank you for the refund of the LS Download.

It's a pleasure doing business with you. I’ll pass the word around.

Thank You!

Steve,

Your software works simply awesome!

I burned a pretty complex background and it was so simple.

I can't wait to get more elaborate with it!

I will recommend this to anyone I know with a lightscribe drive!
