In case you are not familiar with LightScribe, it is a labeling technology which allows you to print labels on special LightScribe media using your LightScribe enabled drive. No additional equipment required - just burn, lightscribe and you are done.
Now Toshiba's new slim line drive makes this feature mobile. In addition the drive comes with good traditional recording features.
Toshiba Storage Device Division announced enhancements to its optical lineup with four new products, including the SD-R6572M, a slimline optical drive equipped with the LightScribe Direct Disc Labeling technology that now includes DVD+R double-layer capability. The SD-R6572M builds on Toshiba's previously announced LightScribe drive by adding double layer media capabilities. Developed by HP, LightScribe technology enables computer users to easily burn silk-screen quality labels onto CD and DVD discs directly from the drive, eliminating added steps for creating labels or using pens to identify disc content.The LightScribe is developed by Hewlett-Packard and they are putting a lot of effort to make it a standard solution for end user disc labeling. So far they have made progress on several fronts, and it looks like that their technology is catching on.
