GUEST,Arkie Tech: duplicating cds with lightscribe (7) RE: Tech: duplicating cds with lightscribe 29 Jan 13

Most likely, Joe and John have provided all you have all the information you need, but I can offer some testimony based upon my experience. First, I agree that a label is important. Why go to the trouble of making the CD without a proper marking. To print and label the CD you will need a computer with a CD writer, printer, and labeling software. I have used printed stick on labels, lightscribe, and a printer that prints directly to CDs designed for printing. The stick on labels do not work well on every CD player. In some vehicles with CD players (mine for instance) the labels will cause the CD to not eject. Lightscribe works from the CD writer so a printer is not required. The process is very slow and the result questionable. As John says the choice of printer that prints CDs should be determined by your particular needs. I use an HP D7560 as I may make only one or sometimes several CDs. Cost was around $100. I use software that cost me $20 bucks to design and print the label. I have never used the software that came with the printer but reviews were good for the printer and bad for the software and I already had software when I acquired the printer. The software allows me to print the names of songs directly to the cd when making normal cds to play on any player. When making mp3 cds names can be printed to a paper insert for the CD sleeve or to CD insert in a jewel case.
