    I never really tried or thought about this, but can you lightscribe a disc, before you burn the data to it?

    I have always just lightscribed after the burn. Anyone know?

    It doesn't matter. I've done the label first. The only consideration is if the data/music/movies you burn don't work for some reason, you wasted the 20 minute Lightscribe time.
    But it works fine either way.

    Yeah. I have a ton of LS discs here at work, and I don't have the data I'm going to burn since it's at home so I can just let them LS here while I'm doing work, and then take them home and burn them.

    Thanks for the input.

    That's the same situation I had. Lots of discs, so it just made sense to LS them all first because burning the data was much faster.
    Happy Lightscribing!

    have to say i prefer doing the data first.

    reason for that is that basically if you lightscribe them and then the data fails how much of a kick in the nuts

    just my opinion
