Works as fast as the car drives. Easy install, great bundle of software. Makes my three year old Sony a dinosour. The lightscribe is wonderful - my disc look professional. Thanks Guys & Gals

No CD Key supplied by anyone for software register

by Judy Walls on 3/5/2007

I have no problems with the DVD/CD product or the execution of the software. However, the box contained two product disks. When I attempted to register the software at Roxio there was no CD key. LaCie would not supply the key and Roxio won't give me one. It is supposed to be on the CD sleeve. LaCie says that Roxio does not give them a key and Roxio says they put them on the CD sleeve and around we go.

Product Overview

This compact, portable drive is now available with LightScribe - the new, must-have labeling technology that etches precise custom-designed silkscreen-quality DVD/CD labels directly onto your discs. Using the very same laser that etches data onto discs, it's as easy as burn, design, flip, burn.
