Lightscribe new user

HI…sorry if this sounds really stupid but what would happen if I put a printable dvd disc in to my lightscribe writer (which arrives Monday) instead of the lightscribe disc…would it just come out a mat effect or something like that? Anyone any idea as I see the lightscribed discs are more expensive.

Hi trish, welcome to CDFreaks! :slight_smile:

You can only burn LightScribe labels on LightScribe media. No exceptions.

Your printable DVDs can be burned in your LightScribe drive, but only on the data side. In order to label those DVDs you will need a compatible printer.

Thanks very much I appreciate you taking time to answer me.

Hey Trish, welcome from me too! :slight_smile:

We have a CD & DVD Printing and Labelling forum that you might like to have a look at when your new drive arrives! :slight_smile:
