Hi,

LightScribe is a technology of optical disk burning. A special type of CD or DVD is required to print the text or graphics on that special CD or DVD. Laser technology is used to print the graphic or text on that disk in the same way as a disk is recorded. In the past, only in sepia colour it was recorded, but now a days it was recorded in monochromatic colours also.

LightScribe technology is just like any other optical disk recording out there, except it utilizes specially coated recordable CDs and DVDs  to create laser-etched labels that will look much like sticker labels. LightScribe allows you to create direct-to-disk labels (as opposed to sticker labels), using the laser on your disk writer. This method uses the laser in a way much like when data is being recorded into the disk. Before it only used one color, but now it's available in all colors.

LightScribe is a kind of labeling technology that prints the label directly to the disc using a disc specifically designed for LightScribe. It burns the text and graphics into the surface of the CD or DVD using the drive’s laser and a specially coated LightScribe disc. It is an optical disc recording technology created by the Hewlett-Packard Company.

This recording technology uses a specially coated recordable CD or DVD to produce laser-etched labels with graphics or texts in contrast to stick-on labels and printable discs. To use LightScribe, this feature or technology must be supported by the optical drive first. The specially coated LightScribe disc chemically changes when a laser strikes the label side, producing titles and graphics using the LightScribe software.

LightScribe is still maintained and supported by several independent enthusiasts though HP is no longer developing the technology.
