Had LightScribe drives for years, have yet to use the feature.

Anybody know where you can get dual layer DVD-R ones?

I use lightscribe when putting together a DVD for client data - it's great presentation. Home use however - the marker works just as well.

i would use my lightscribe feature on my DVD drive IF they had something other than that ugly gold color. give me a green or blue color and i'll use it all the time

Trust me, I accidentally bought a multi color pack of light scribe dvd, and the regular gold is by FAR the best color. I printed one on a green one and it was UGLY!

I just thought it was easier to sharpie the content right on the cd. CD's are so cheap and I have to burn so many of them because of scratches or misplacement that it isnt useful for me.

yes, I use lightscribe. I use it for Music CDs for my wife, because she hates not knowing what is on the CD, and I use it for slipstream OS CDs/DVDs to put what is on there, along with the Product Key.

Would be nice if it was faster, but it is definitely useful.

does anyone actually use lightscribe? ... cause me personally, i just dont think it's worth the extra money for it. cause im more concerned about the DATA on the discs alot more than the 'fancy looking disc' stuff.

so for those who are concerned about media quality KNOWS Verbatim DVD+R 16x cert are 'overall' the best discs you can buy and there usually at a fairly good price to... although TY (Taiyo Yuden) 8x cert DVD+R (or -R) are also considered cream of the crop... but will most likely cost more than Verbatim DVD+R 16x ones. so thats why i say overall Verbatim 16x DVD+R cert discs are the best you can get.

p.s. burning speed in general 8x is a good thing to use (especially on 8x certified media and 16x certified media). especially on older drives.. but even newer drives (probably sometime in later 06 ish) where you can do 16x and still have a fairly decent quality, but it's almost always best to burn 16x cert media @ either 8x (which is what i use) or 12x in some cases for those concerned about having a "quality" burn for there important data.

i use to then 2 weeks later i sold the drive turned out to be a waste of money and the qaulity differs from whats shown on the website
