GUEST,Dale Tech: CD marker (14) RE: Tech: CD marker 26 Jan 07


Re Light Scribe, be prepared to wait a LONG time for the burn process, much longer than the actual recording. I think mine takes just over 20 minutes. I rarely use it anymore.

The not quite black on gold doesn't show up all that well either. There is a price premium on the 'right' CDs. Off hand I can't say exactly how much.

They will need to improve on the process before it will be really valuable. It needs to at least true black on white or at least the normal shiny disk color.

Another thought is the color printing on white disks, also a premium item, but MUCH better results. At work we have an Epson printer which we have just started using. Pictures, text, design is limited only by your imagination. Results are excellent but a bit slow. ONE disk at a time on a special tray loaded from the back. A bit inconvenient, but doable.

We will be using it only for special projects. Our normal procedure will remain the same as it has been for a couple of years, a single line of identifying text on the outside edge of the disk, which in most cases means we are not writing on the part of the disk which the file was written. Writers work from the inside out, and unless you are approaching the 80 minute mark or an equivalent amount of data what you write on the edge will mean less bleed through.

We do use markers specifically made for CD writing.
