Creating Disc Labels with LightScribe
LightScribe is direct disc labeling technology that
provides you a simple way to burn precise, silk-screen
quality labels. All you have to do is burn, flip, and burn.
It combines the LightScribe-enabled DVD drive of your
PC with specially coated CD or DVD discs (sold
separately) and enhanced disc-labeling software.
A LightScribe-enabled DVD disc drive uses an optical
laser in the drive to burn a label onto a thin dye coating
on the label side of the LightScribe disc. There is no ink
to smear, no paper to curl, no adhesive to loosen.
LightScribe discs are identified by the
LightScribe logo on the retail packaging and
on the inner hub area of the disc itself. Your
PC comes ready to work with many versions of
LightScribe discs; however, as new disc versions are
introduced, you need to update the software for your
LightScribe-enabled DVD drive. Updates are available
from the HP Customer Care Web site:

• What do I need to use LightScribe?
Burning a label with LightScribe requires three things:
LightScribe-enabled DVD drive
LightScribe software
LightScribe discs (sold separately)
• How long does it take to burn a
LightScribe label?
The time required varies according to the imaging
mode (draft, normal, and best) and the amount of
area that is being burned (narrow band with curved
text, medium band with curved text, or full disc
surface). Using the draft or normal imaging modes
provides a shorter burn time, but also results in a
lighter label. Additionally, in most cases, the smaller
the area used for the label, the shorter the
burning time.
