    I have a G4 Powerbook, the last titanium one. My Super Drive finally died so I purchased a LaCie d2 FireWire DVD burner which contains Toast 7 and Lightscribe 1.2 software. I am wondering if there is an easy way to pull my playlist info from iTunes after I burn a CD or an MP3 CD onto a Lightscribe disc, rather than manually type the text. I would appreciate any suggestions.
    Thanks... Castel

    iTunes supports AppleScript. Does your LightScribe program support it too? If it does, then an AppleScript would be the perfect solution for this job.

    I believe it does supprt Applescript.

    How would I use it to create the information for the label and transfer that info to Lightscribe?

    Something like this:

    Code:
    tell application "iTunes"
    for each song in selection
    set theArtist to the current song's artist
    set theAlbum to the current song's album
    etc.
    tell application "LightScribe"
    set the current label's artist to theArtist
    set the current label's album to theAlbum
    etc.
    end tell
    end for
    end tell
    
    As is, that code probably won't work - it's only meant to be an example.

    While that may work there MUST be some easier way to do it. Perhaps there is some good software that will do the trick? I've been told that Sonic Express Labeler works well but, apparently, only on a PC...
