Now that i have a Yamaha CRW-F1 CD-R/W i can Disc T@2 CD-R’s. I also use my Pioneer 215L to Disc T@2 DVD’s.
I have 3 or 4 LightScribe drives and LightScribe CD-R and DVD media and use them at times for the monochrome CD’s and DVD’s for backups. I have some multicolored LightScribe CD-R’s that come out pretty kewls.
I have an Epson R320 (and an Epson RX680 which i haven’t installed yet) to print on CD-R’s and DVD’s. Takes no time to scan a CD or DVD and load the image in the printing apps and either LightScribe or print on them. Once you get it down it’s fast and easy.
When LightScribing i just read here,surf, or do something else while it’s burning. Printing on discs only takes a few minutes. Disc T@2ing is fairly quick also.
For some backups i’ll even print sleeves for regular cases but most go in regular jewel cases or slim cases. When i print sleeves and discs it’s hard to tell which is the retail one. I really like the TY WaterShield DVD’s. I want to try out the TY silver printable CD-R’s someday. CDan says they print on really nice. I also use TY hub printable CD-R and DVD’s.
And lastly i do use a Sharpie for everyday stuff that will end up in the trash or the shredder.
I have yet to buy any LabelFlash discs but i’d like to grab a few and try them out.
I just ordered some Verbatim dark blue AZO CD-R’s to see how they look for Disc T@2 but i have not received them yet.
As for the apps i use, Epson CD Print, Surething CD Labeler Deluxe 5 (for lightscribing and printing sometimes), Labelflash Index Maker (for Disc T@2 with my Pioneer 215L), and Nero 126.96.36.199 (for Disc T@2 with my Yamaha for CD-R’s). Another reason for Nero 5 is it also works for AMQR CD-R burning with my Yamaha. The bad thing about it is, i like using Vi$ta 64 bit and i have to use my XP Pro 32 bit with my dual boot setup for Nero 5.
Hey what can i say, it’s a hobby for me, i’m a CD/DVD Freak, and it keeps me out of trouble
