I think that’s a good step, pressure for Lightscribe.

Thank you jsl for the real source… :d

Awesomeness. I still have my Yamaha CRW-F1 with disc T@2 :slight_smile: So am I to understand it refocuses the laser to another “layer” for labeling so that you don’t flip the disc?

Oh thanks for the info. Sounds like an interesting new tech to play with. Lightscribe is cool, but 27 minutes a disc, not very cool.
