My dad is in the sound business. He usually has to burn fairly large quantities of cd's, along with cd labels and jewel case labels that he prints out on special papers that stick. This current job is to burn 65 copies of a recording he did.

Well anyways I have a light scribe drive on my computer and was wondering if it would be better to burn the labels on the disc using it. I've never actually used it, but I've played around making labels using nero 7. I'm wondering if it would be cheaper even though the cd's cost quite a bit more. I was thinking with all the ink, special papers (kind of expensive), and time they save they might be worth it.

My concerns are the price of the cd's and I've heard of using too much lightscribe can ruin your drive. Does anyone have any experiences with light scribe that they can please share with me? Also, where you get your cd's or know of any good deals. Thanks I really appreciate it :thumbsup: .

While I don't have any "volume" experience with the LiteScribe stuff, most of our customers love using it for their home projects. I haven't noticed any problems with the drives breaking at work.

Have you tried googling one of your local price comparison guide websites. When I did it here, got a lot of local info.

The last ones I bought were about 4 times the price of ordinary CD Rs but I think that now there are generic LightScribes coming onto the market which will be quite a bit cheaper. Look for ones with writable label sides.

My problem is no stores around here sell them except wal-mart for 10$ a 10 pack (rip off). Maybe I'll check out sams club and just order some online. Thanks for the help everyone!
