What's the best app for burning Lightscribe labels, and are certain combinations of burner & disc better than others??

I'm pretty sure there was a thread on this earlier this year (was it Wainuitech?)

Why would you want Lightscribe?

It is just a gimmick :(

They all do the same thing.

And they'll all look the same. Since its only B&W not colour

I have an Asus LightScribe burner, very nice. Don't use lightscribe often as its not quick, but the results are always good. Looks much more professional than a label or print IMO.

Umm, good question. One that came bundled with the drive. :D

It seems to be called lightscribe system software. :illogical

Edit /slap!

Silly me, that just for the options, contrast etc.

It's under extras in the bundled Nero software.

I used to use Nero cover designer. BUT I think I may use cdburner. Since its a lot smaller

I think this will do LS as well. All,you have to do, is install the Lightscribe program

I use nero which came bundled with the drive.
Don't use it much though disks are painfully expensive compared with other printable disks and takes around 15mins.
IMO buy a printer that will print do printable disks would save you money in the long run and your sanity if you are impatient like myself.

As said by Q Man.... I haven't used lightscribe since I bought a Canon ip4500.

I use it extensively and I like it. I use either Sonic or Nero's apps.

Well obviously it'll take longer. Depending on which option you select.. You can change it so its shorter, but it'll probably be too light.
