Install your label-making software* (it may already be pre-installed on new PCs). Use the install CD that came bundled with your hardware or purchase label-burning software online or at select retailers.
View a complete list of LightScribe labeling software providers, or you can find trial versions available for Windows in our downloads page.
In addition to label-making software, you'll need LightScribe System Software. Each hardware manufacturer will provide the optimal version for their systems, but universal versions are also available in our Downloads section for Windows, Mac, and Linux platforms. In some cases, the LightScribe System Software is included in the labeling application. Otherwise, it needs to be installed separately.
You can also use the free LightScribe Template Labeler (Windows) or LightScribe Simple Labeler (Windows, Mac, and Linux). These easy-to-use tools allow you to design labels in just a few simple steps.
