WHAT LIGHTSCRIBE IS

A WHOLE NEW WAY TO LABEL YOUR DISCS
LightScribe is an innovative technology that uses a special disc drive, special media, and label-making software to burn labels directly onto CDs and DVDs.
Because the labels are laser-etched--not printed--there's no ink, no smudging, and no peeling.
Your labels can be whatever you want them to be. Create one-of-a-kind designs with your own photos, text, and artwork using your label-making software. Or choose from the many free backgrounds the software provides. You may also visit LightScribe's label gallery for free downloadable designs.
Once you have create your design, be sure to follow these three steps:
  • Burn your data (music, photos, video, etc.) in the LightScribe drive.
  • When your data burning is complete, open the drive and flip the disc over.
  • Burn your LightScribe label. Remember, the same drive that burns your data burns your label too.
HOW IT WORKS

THE TECHNOLOGY BEHIND LIGHTSCRIBE
The laser inside a CD/DVD disc drive with LightScribe technology focuses light energy onto a thin dye coating on the label side of the disc. Only LightScribe media has this special coating.
The light from the laser causes a chemical change in the dye coating that shows up on the disc. With laser precision, the drive renders the text and images that you created for the label.
There are three different layout modes for burning labels:
  • Full mode. Although it takes longer, this is the mode to use for a full-disc image.
  • Content mode. Perfect for creating artful borders around the center of the disc.
  • Title mode. Great for a small amount of text or graphics. This is the quickest mode.
LightScribe labels burn in concentric circles, moving outward from the center of the disc. Images with the largest diameters will take longest to burn.


WHAT YOU NEED

HARDWARE, SOFTWARE, AND MEDIA
Learn all about the three things you need to burn LightScribe labels: LightScribe hardware, LightScribe software, and LightScribe media.
Hardware

Hardware refers to LightScribe-enabled drives. You must have a drive (either included in your PC or notebook or purchased separately as an internal or external drive) with LightScribe technology.

To confirm that you have a LightScribe-enabled drive, look for the LightScribe logo on the outside of your drive or your computer.
Software

Label-making software comes with most hardware products. There are many different types of LightScribe-enabled software. The type you get will depend on your hardware.

Labeling software may also be purchased separately or SureThing Express can be downloaded for free.
Once you've installed your software, you can create unique designs with your own photos, artwork, and text. Your software also includes backgrounds that have been created especially for LightScribe. Use the backgrounds as they are, or embellish them any way you like.
In addition to label-making software, you'll also need the LightScribe System Software. Each hardware manufacturer will provide the optimal version for their systems, but you can also download a universal version. In some cases, the LightScribe System Software is included in the labeling application. Otherwise, it needs to be installed separately.
Media

LightScribe CDs and DVDs have a special coating that interacts with the laser from your LightScribe-enabled drive. You must use LightScribe media (CDs and DVDs) in order to burn a label onto your discs.

A few things to remember about LightScribe media:
  • LightScribe discs are gold, and the designs appear in grayscale, similar to a black-and-white photograph (even if you create your design in full color). New color background discs will be available in 2006.
  • Any LightScribe media works in any LightScribe drive.
  • Currently, media is available in CD-R, DVD+R and DVD-R.
  • Software and media carry the LightScribe logo on the packaging.

SIGN OF DIGITAL TIMES

DIGITAL FINANCE IN THE HOME OFFICE
Forget the filing cabinet and toss your stapler. Your home office is going digital.
WHAT IF …
Your office is a mess? Try using this acronym to decide what to do with all of that paper:

Throw it away or recycle it.
Refer it to someone else.
Act on it.
Save it in the place where it belongs.
Halt it (in the case of junk mail or subscriptions you don't need).

TAKE THE EASY WAY OUT
Using your computer to take care of your finances can save you considerable time and headaches. There are no stamps to lick, no paper cuts, no math errors, and you have an opportunity to save some hard-earned money.

CHOOSING FINANCIAL SOFTWARE
Most personal-finance programs allow you to pay bills online, organize your budget, track investments, print checks, and keep your expenses organized for taxes.

With just a few clicks, you can see where you're overspending, which investments are under-performing, or determine if it's time to refinance. With the powerful financial software available, it's almost like having a little financial advisor looking over your shoulder.
BACK UP YOUR FILES
However you do your finances in your home office, you should back them up on CD at least once a quarter (once a month is even better).
Note the contents on the CD, including the date, the file format, and anything else that might help you identify the disc later without having to pop it into your computer.
A laser-etched label can give your discs a polished look for eye-grabbing self-promotion, or simply more effective archiving. LightScribe Direct Disc Labeling technology and a specially coated disc enable you to burn professional-looking photo and text labels right onto your CDs and DVDs. Now all your important data files will be instantly identifiable, granting you a new level of convenience and efficiency.
PROTECTING YOUR PRIVACY
Take the same precautions with your digital data as you would with your Social Security number, credit card numbers, and other private information. When you burn your archives to disc, lock them up with your other financial concerns. Consider a fireproof safe, which protects your valuable information from both burglars and disaster.

GUARD AGAINST IDENTITY THEFT
You know one thing that won't protect your personal information? Your garbage can. The primary source of identity theft is not super-skilled computer hackers breaking into your computer from a telephone booth. It's dumpster divers picking through broken eggshells and banana peels to steal your bank and credit card statements, and other personal documents. The best way to fight identity theft is to put a shredder right next to your desk. You can even buy a shredder that will slice and dice old CDs!

WHAT IF …
Your home office is your second office?

A handheld computer can save you from having to enter data into a computer more than once. Handhelds can store contacts, schedules, to-do lists, e-mail, practically anything that their larger counterparts can—but they fit into your pocket or handbag. And by regularly syncing up with your computer, you can update the information anytime and access it from your office, too.
The benefits of moving your finances to digital media far outweigh the risks, and that's not even considering the extra space you'll free up in your office where that extra filing cabinet used to be!
