I am THRILLED!!!
Thank you Lightscribe ppls. I had my old Lite On drive go out but I was so happy with it...it lasted like 8 years and was a little workhorse- my daughter has a drive that is over 10 years old still working for her...I got another Lite On and decided to check out the lightscribe stuff and get it in Sata rather then IDE. I am so happy I did all of that. I found that it was said that the best contrast was on verbatim disks so those are what I got (they have a good rep anyway). I just did my first disc and I am bouncing in my chair happy. For anyone who is wondering I am using Nero 8 and I got the template program from here and am burning my second from the template program with the first being a custom template I made in Nero. Too bad it can't actually burn in color...that would be the bomb but I am aware you can get different background colors on the discs. What a relief that I don't have to worry about having labels and enough ink to print them out....it's all in the burner if you have the right discs.
I anticipate new computers for myself and each of my two kids next year and I WILL be getting them the lightscribe drives as well for their systems.
I have heard that clarity of image has everything to do with the discs you use....cheap discs equal bad results...the least complaints were with verbatim discs....seldom if ever a bad disc and raves about the clarity of image on the lightscribe whereas even with Memorex there were complaints about the clarity of image. I went a stint with cheap regular discs...so many coastered or didn't store well, but I guess what you get what you pay for...from now on it is just going to be verbatim all the way.
I am on XP as I absolutely REFUSE to go to a new OS prefering to wait until the OS is not longer supported before I switch over...less bugs and problems that way. And like I said the drive is SATA and using Nero or the programs provided on this site for the lightscribe functions.
Yep, I am sure there are some bugs in some situations but this is GREAT as far as I can see. Like I said before I am absolutely thrilled with this and so glad I spent the money on the drive and discs I did.
