LightScribe Resources

DiscLabel supports LightScribe Direct Disc Labeling, an exciting disc labeling technology that enables you to burn CD and DVD labels simply by flipping the discs over and putting them back in the same disc drive that burned your data.

DiscLabel can be used to label LightScribe media with a LightScribe compliant CD/DVD drive. Note that the built-in drives on Macs are not LightScribe compliant. You will need an external LightScribe drive.

LightScribe technology combines the CD or DVD drive of your computer with specially coated discs and Smile's DiscLabel CD/DVD labeling software to produce precise, silkscreen-quality, iridescent labels. With LightScribe, your disc is your label. It’s the no-hassle way to create awesome-looking labels for all your music mix CDs, digital video or photo archives, and for any business application.

Note: Your LightScribe drive should be turned on when you launch DiscLabel, or DiscLabel will not recognize it.
