LightScribe is a direct disc labeling technology that burns text and graphics onto the surface of a CD or DVD using the disc drive's laser and a specially coated LightScribe disc. A LightScribe disc drive burns data and creates labels using the same device. LightScribe's specially coated discs chemically change when a laser strikes the label side, producing titles and graphics created using LightScribe software.
