    I searched through the forum looking for an answer, but was not able to find one, so decided to post this.

    I am wondering about DVD-R and DVD Dual Layer Lightscribe Media. From what I have been able to gather, neither of these currently exist.

    I just created a dvd from my niece's first year's worth of videos, and I want to use lightscribe for the labels. However, there is no lightscribe DVD-R media. As far as I know, only DVD-R is universally playable in standalone DVD Players.

    So: Is DVD+R (available in lightscribe format) able to be played in at least the vast majority of dvd players? In which case I could use that for the video. Also what are the plans for lightscribe dvd-r and dvd dual layer?

    I have a 10-spindle of Lightscribe DVDs that I got from Best Buy. The burned disc played just fine on my DVD player.

    My LaCie burner came with Verbatim media, and that is pretty much what I have stuck with. My lightscribe DVD+R Varbatims work fine on my Sony 5disc DVD player.

    My sisters dvd player will not take + discs, minus is much more compatiable. Most players will play - in preferance to both or +

    Just ran around to various stores to look for some lightscribe dvd+r discs and came across Verbatim 10 packs at Best Buy for 8 dollars (on sale)! Needless to say, I bought a few. I also found that HP makes a lightscribe dvd-r, the only brand I know to exist in that format. But as they are more than twice the price of the Verbatim lightscribe dvd+r discs I just bought, I'll take my chances with the cheap dvd+r discs. If they don't work I could always go back and get the more expensive -r's :rolleyes:
