Can you use a Light Scribe CD Disk with a label flash drive? If not where can you buy Label Flash CD’s?

Label Flash and Light Scribe are not compatible.

Where are you located? If you are in the US, you can buy some very expensive Memorex brand Label Flash disks at Newegg: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817501030&nm_mc=OTC-Froogle&cm_mmc=OTC-Froogle--CD/DVD+R/RW+Media--Memorex-_-17501030
or Amazon.com, among others: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0012E3V22

Lots of other sites have Fuji Label Flash disks. For example: http://www.frys.com/product/5330748

Oops, I just noticed you said cds…not dvds. That could be a much bigger problem, as I haven’t seen them in the few searches I just ran.

Hi and welcome to the forum :slight_smile:

You can burn data on the disc, but you can’t write a label. To burn a label on a LightScribe disc you need a LightScribe drive, and for Labelflash discs of course a labelflash drive is needed.

But the data surface is the same on both types of media :slight_smile:

EDIT: oops… Kerry was faster :bigsmile:

Wonder if you can burn audio (music) on the Flash Label DVD’s?

The data surface of every disc is pretty the same. What really is different in labelflash or lightscribe discs is the label side of the disc.

You can burn any data on labelflash/lightscribe/printable discs with every burner but you can write [B]on the label side[/B] of the disc only with the proper burner.

You can burn music on a DVD, and there are two main alternatives.

[ul]
[li]A data disc, i.e. files that you’ll use in your computer (mp3, flac, wav, ape, etc).
[/li]
[li]A so called “Audio-DVD”, this is really different compared to an audio CD. It requires a dedicated player, and actually I don’t know if it can be played on a computer.
