LightScribe Technology
Bringing Your CDs and DVDs to Life!
No doubt you've labeled your CD and DVD collections with magic markers or sticky adhesive labels that tend to fray and peel. No matter how neat you are, this labeling technique lacks the professional feel you get from pre-produced disks. And it's certainly not a system that adequately reflects the great quality video and music you've painstakingly collected over the years. Thanks to LightScribe Technology those ragtag days of sloppy looking labels are over. Now you can create customized, professional-looking labels using the same laser that burns your data-right inside your CD/DVD drive! And it�s all incredibly simple to do with LightScribe Direct Disc Labeling technology.

How LightScribe Works
LightScribe technology is an integrated system that combines the CD or DVD drive of your LightScribe-enabled computer with specially coated discs and enhanced disc-burning software to produce precise, laser-etched labels. You can design and produce labels to express your creativity and personality! And there�s no limit to how far you can go. With LightScribe, the disc itself becomes the label. This amazing technology is the no-hassle way to create elegant labels for all your CDs and DVDs. Simply burn your music mix, digital-video/photo archives, or business applications. Then flip the disc and burn your own unique label. It's as simple as that, with LightScribe Technology!
