DVD and Label Burner – Two in One

picture of HP's DVD / Label BurnerThis new technology, created by HP, lets users burn DVDs, CDs, and their respective labels. The drives cost about $10 more than current ones, and the special disks needed are about 10 cents more than the ones we use today. Despite the slight increase, here’s something that I think will actually catch on. Look for these at your local computer store within the next 6 months.

A technology dubbed LightScribe enables drives to burn a silk screen-like, high-contrast label on the upper side of CD or DVD media bearing a special coating. After completing a data burn, users will be prompted to flip the disc over to burn a label onto the other side.
