    Hello All

    The lightscribe technology seems very interesting.

    What are your views? Is it any good?

    Does someone know if I can burn a lightscribe DVD in a DVD recorder and then burn the title in a computer DVD drive?

    And are the disks themselves supposed to be of good quality?

    Thanks

    Leo

    They are the same as ordinary disks as far as recording goes.

    The top is the picture side and yes you can use your pc for this.

    You should be able to pick up your titles using Nero or similar.

    Make sure you get the version 2 disks as they are faster to burn and produce better quality pictures.

    They are not exactly cheap even though they've been around a while now.

    I have no doubt lightscribe produces a pleasing end result... but the investement required in time is preposterous.

    You will may be do a few then get fed up.

    This technology will die... or fail to ever take off in any significant way.

    Too expensive. Way too slow.
