    Hey! I'm puzzled now o_O I have a LightScribe CD/DVD+RW Drive and I downloaded and updated the LightScribe Software. Then I installed SureThing Cd Labeler and I created my Own Designs and Added Text and everything, I bought some LightScribe CD's and when I go to Burn these Designs, they Dont burn in Colour like what I created o_O instead they burn to the Disk Like a Clear Hologram Image Bronze in Colour like the LightScribe CD Label Surface o_O Whats with this? I expected the labels to burn to the CD in Colour like what I designed o_O Am I doing something wrong? I design the CD in SureThing and Save the project, then double click on it to open it in SureThing again, then click on File/Print, even the preview print showed as the Bronze Design not the Colour One I created :doubt: Am I right in thinking it wont Burn in Colour? :(

    Hi DVD+R,

    you did nothing wrong. Lightscribe does not support colors. It creates bronze/black labels.

    Sad to say but pandlouk is correct. The lightscribe looks great but all monotone. Don't forget you can use some of the special effects such as bolding or different fonts.

    If you have need for a new printer, also consider buying one that will print the colored label directly onto a special printable CD/DVD media. Not all printers support this option but some do.

    Combined with the Lightscribe, this would give you a nice choice of output.

    Definitely avoid using paper labels. The paper labels can come off and get stuck inside the player causing all kinds of grief.

    Lite-Scribe DVD drive here too. I know it's somewhat of a letdown that it's limited the way it is, but like ErikAlbert mentioned, i went out and bought some transparency colored DVD's to add to the candy.

    I was planning to install a LightScribe DVD-writer on my new computer, mainly as a second DVD-writer, but my computer shop had no such DVD-writers in stock at that moment.
    I wasn't planning to use it regularly considering the long time it takes to burn such a label, but some CD/DVD's are more valuable to me, than others and they deserve such lightscribe label.
    I don't really regret it, because it's nothing but a nice looking gadget.
    It's better to spend your money on quality CD/DVD's, like Verbatim or any other quality brand.
