Hi GoldenX - The LightScribe media vary in price depending on manufacturer, but tend to be more expensive (up to double) the price of non LightScribe media. Some of the manufacturers are HP, Memorex, Philips. I can't give you a $ value that would make any sense because prices of media varies a great deal throughout the world, and also on quality, brand etc.
To start using LightScribe, you can't simply buy a CD or DVD though - you need a burner that is LightScribe enabled. The burner has to have a second optical source that can burn the image pattern onto the LightScribe surface of the media. Check to see if your drive does this - otherwise you need a new burner to get started (and it's probably not worth the extra money IMO)
For software to run LightScribe and make designs, you can get a free download of SureThing from theLightScribe website
Check out their site for lots more info on how to get started too :iagree:
