I just bought a pair of LG DVD burners. Both are dual layer, and can do DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD+R, DVD+RW, and DVD-RAM.

I bought one that can do Lightscribe and I plan on only using Lightscribe media so I can burn nice labels. The problem is, no Lightscribe software.

Any suggestions? Some drives seem to come with software. I poked around, couldn't find anything to download that wasn't some kind of trial version.

Litescribe blows..I got it to...but you can never find a variety of DVD's which are able to use it. I could only find 4X speed. Maybe that has changed now.

It has changed a bit, but the discs are still a bitch to find, and not really worth it IMO. I still prefer a Sharpie.

Yeah its fun for awhile, I find myself resorting back to sharpie or the "what the fuck is on this disc method."

Thanks for the link. Their basic software is all I need. My laptop DVD drive sounds like a popcorn machine when using discs that have labels stuck to them. That's why I want to use Lightscribe.

As far as media goes, I've seen 16X Lightscribe media at Staples and Office Max.

I am heading out later this afternoon to pick up some blanks.

I have the software on my laptop... never picked up the discs. Are they much more expensive? Call me cheap, but sharpies work for me.

I went to OfficeMax today and bought some Lightscribe CD-R's and DVD+Rs. The CD-R's are 52X and the DVD+R's are 16X.

The Lightscribe versions cost a little more, but I am not gonna sweat it. This was just to get started. I'm gonna keep my eyes open. I always used to see Lightscribe media marked down on the clearance tables at Staples and other places, but I never had a drive that used it so I never bought any.

I like Nero 6 with lightscribe, but can't use Nero 6 on my Vista Machine and they just say buy Nero 7. Fuck 'em!!!! I just use the crappy free one that lighscribe has on their web page.
