Learn What LightScribe Is

A WHOLE NEW WAY TO LABEL YOUR DISCS


LightScribe is an innovative technology that uses a special disc drive, special media, and label-making software to burn labels directly onto CDs and DVDs.


Because the labels are laser-etched--not printed--there's no ink, no smudging, and no peeling.


Your labels can be whatever you want them to be. Create one-of-a-kind designs with your own photos, text, and artwork using your label-making software. Or choose from the many free backgrounds the software provides. You may also visit LightScribe's label gallery for free downloadable designs.


Once you have create your design, be sure to follow these three steps:

  • Burn your data (music, photos, video, etc.) in the LightScribe drive.
  • When your data burning is complete, open the drive and flip the disc over.
  • Burn your LightScribe label. Remember, the same drive that burns your data burns your label too.
