These disks work well with the Lightscribe software. I have only started using the Lightscribe software and they print very clear on these disks. The only flaw I have is that when I choose a personal background, like from a fishing trip or Christmas background, the whole disk looks rather dark. I think in the future, if they can do color somehow, it will be more marketable as they just seem too dark even without pictures on there.
LightScribe Direct Disc Labeling is a new technology that offers consumers and businesses a simple, no-hassle way to burn professional, silkscreen-quality labels on their DVDs. Using the same laser that burns data in their disc drives, customers burn their data as always, flip the disc over, reinsert it into the drive and burn a precise and permanent iridescent label.
