I have just bought a HP Laptop which includes 'Lightscribe DVD Rewriter optical drive' - from reading some info, i understand that a special disc can be inserted 'upside down' and is written on by Lightscribe. What I want to know is, does Lightscribe actually burn discs - such as say Nero? and then, you have an option to label it?

Also, with my main PC, I have 2 drives where you would place your disc you want copies, and the other tray for the blank disc you want it copied onto. Well, with the laptop there is only 1 tray to put the disc. How would you copy a data disc? What would be the procedure.

Thanks.

Hi,

Have a read of LightScribe | An Easy Guide for information on LightScribe technology.

But basically yes, you can burn a CD/DVD as normal with Nero, and if your using LightScibe disk you can then print a label onto the disk by turning the disk over in the drive and then using the options in Nero.

For copies using only one drive, put the disk that you want to copy into the drive first, if using Nero their is an option for Exact Copy, this will then read the info from the original disk, then ask you to insert a blank disk for it to burn to, insert a blank disk and the burning will start.

Thats great, thanks. And thanks for the quick reply. I take it Nero is a good bet. I think Cyberlink is pre-installed on the laptop, but I thought Cyberlink was only for playing DVDs. Ill have to have a look if it burns cds/dvds also ... any idea?

I know Cyberlink DVD Suite 7 allows you to burn cds/dvds aswell as play them.
Check which version you have and then just search in Google.

I personally use Nero, so for ease of use i vouch for that.
