You can get colored blank discs, but the Lightscribe only "prints" in shades of black. You will need to get Lightscribe compatible discs, which are just like "normal" cd's / dvd's with the exception of having a special coating on the one side.

You can visit Lightscribe's website for complete tutorials.

LightScribe is older technology that takes half an hour to make a two toned disc label. It is ok for very plain labels but not too good for anything really creative. I had one and stopped using it because the labels were sometimes very hard to read because they were too light to see easily. I switched to a DiscPainter because it prints disc labels in full color and only takes one minute to make.

Lightscribe is a technology used to put Label on your Disc instead of marking the CD/DVD with a marker pen you can directly burn the Pic or text on the CD/DVD.

I have a Superwritemaster dvd/cd duplicator with lightscribe capability. But I can't get the lightscribe to work. Help!


>You need to install the drivers for Lightscribe; if you don't have them Google Lightscribe HP and you should find them on the HP website. Then you need a disk label burning program that runs Lightscribe. Droppix.com has a good one, I think HP also has a basic one.

I have a HP Photosmart Premium C309 printer. How do I print directly on a CD? Is there a template available?


I checked the printer specs to be sure there was not some new technology I had never heard of out there, you never know. Your HP Photosmart Premium C309 printer does not support printing on CD/DVD disks, and as far as I know there is no printers that will.

What you need to print on a CD/DVD is a LightScribe CD/DVD burner. You will also have to buy special printable disks to use with the LightScribe burner.

Hope this helps

Hi there,

If you just google eBay and go to their site, type "HP Pavilion A720N Lightscribe Multi Drive" and you should have a good selection of choices. Simply duplicate the process for the other drive. I would suggest you keep your dealings with members who have a rating of 100% next to their name and you should have no problems. They will also usually be happy to help make sure what they sell you will be 100% compatible.

I buy almost all my replacement parts there for all my customers.

Regards,

Marcus

Any brand-new CD/DVD reader/writer with LightScribe *WILL* be compatible with your HP.
Check whether your "power" and "data" cables are the "old" style (white power connector and a 80-pin ribbon-cable) or the "new" style (thin SATA cables), before you buy a writer with the "wrong" (PATA versus SATA) interface.
