Do Lightscribe Audio CD's exist?
I've just discovered Lightscribe technology (Don't know how I've missed it for so long seeing as it's been around for a while!) and I'm wondering if there are any Audio CD's that are compatible with Lightscribe?
My partner and I are songwriters and use Audio CD's for our demo's as opposed to data cd's and it would be great to be able to create pro looking labels on the cd's using Lightscribe.
From what I have gleaned so far, the only media available for LS is Data CD's and DVD - has anyone come across compatible audio CD's?
Could I just use DVD format instead?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Hi Greg !
Sorry for the delayed reply, I've been traveling and can't get my mail as frequent as when I'm home.
I use Memorex & HP Media most of the time for both DATA, AUDIO, & VIDEO.
Most of the time I get it at Staples, Office Depot, or Wal-Mart. I've also got some from BJ's or Sam's.

Send me a Private MESSAGE containing:

I also try my best to keep E-mail Addresses confidential. I use "Blind Carbon Copies" when I send out anything.
I only occasionally send out Special Notifications, if I do something major.
The only "COST" is your E-mail Address which is REQUIRED by My Windows Live Skydrive to allow access to the stuff I've developed.

The only difference between data CD-R's and the Compact Disc Audio CD-R's is not down to quality at all. The difference is that the Audio discs have a little file in the bootup sequence so that domestic hifi CD writers can use them, whereas they can't use the computer orientated data discs.
There is NO DIFFERENCE between the quality of these two types of disc. In fact the data discs that have a darker green hue can be less prone to read/write errors than most audio discs. Remember, the audio on these is just a series of 1's and 0's.
Actually, there is a big difference thinking about it. The Audio discs cost a helluvalot more. Save your money, and use whatever you can find that fits the job.
Oh yeah, and just in case you were wondering, I've run a little recording studio for years, and have a little bit of experience on this front. Just beginning to mess around with the whole Lightscribe idea though, and save a few quid potentially (although increasing time delays!)
