  1. Check to make sure you have a LightScribe-enabled product. To do this, look for a LightScribe logo on the outside of your CD drive or your computer.
  2. Get your special LightScribe media. When purchasing media, be sure to look for the LightScribe logo on the CD and DVD packages at a retailer. You cannot burn LightScribe labels onto media without this logo.
  3. Fire up your labeling software. This is the program you'll use to create your LightScribe discs. That's where we come in: Acoustica CD/DVD Label Maker version 3!

HOW DO I BURN A LIGHTSCRIBE CD?

  1. Create your label design. Launch the Acoustica CD/DVD Label Maker software and design the label onscreen by typing in your text, choosing or importing graphics, and arranging the text and images as you'd like them.  To get a jumpstart on your design, choose from the many backgrounds that have already been created for LightScribe labels. Download the free LightScribe art pack to get started quickly. See additional free art at the LightScribe web site.

  2. Burn the label. By placing the disc in the drive with the label-side down.
    Then click "Print."

  3. After the label is burned, the disc will be ejected and your LightScribe CD or DVD is complete.

  2. Click the tool bar and select "Curved Text". Click the yellow "I" beam to edit the text. Any text you now type will be curved.
  3. Type 1950 (or your desired text) for the first line. Click the "enter" key (on your key board). Type the next line (1951). The years are neatly placed in a columns. see the example to the right.
