After recently purchasing a LightScribe enabled burner I ran into a rather significant drawback. Yes it burns pretty much any CD or DVD media. The LightScribe feature is nice and beats the heck out of the sharpie marker and my chicken-scratch penmanship. Now for the problem; I created some iso images of a data DVD close the max of a dual layer DVD. Before I burn I run out to the local stores to find some LightScribe Dual Layer DVD-R's and find that those just don't exist.
Now I'm feeling a little ticked off (ok, I didn't research this aspect of LightScribe beforehand).
I emailed Verbatim to ask when Dual Layer DVD-R's will be available and they told me they have no plans for DL DVD media.
The current LightScribe products are available in CD-R, DVD+R and DVD-R only.
There are no plans at this time for a DVD+R DL or DVD-R DL LightScibe product.
Knowing that you can save the cost of labels and ink, print snazzier looking labels for your homebrewed CD's and DVD's but will be limited to single layer capacity DVD's, would you buy a LightScribe drive and the media for your next computer, or get a 12-pack of Sharpie markers?"
