    Which is better....to use lightscribe to engrave on a DVD or use a printable disc and print the information on the DVD using your printer? And why is this better?

    Lightscribe uses the laser to cut the image to the material on the disk.
    Each lightscribe disk is only one color,but the image is stable where
    printing on print ready disks are full color and can be damamged by liquids.

    Imation manufactures disks with a technology called aquaguard that
    is supposed to stablize the image on printed disks.

    It really depends on what you want to do as far as cost and whether
    you want full color or not.
    Lightscribe disks are a bit more expensive.

    Never used Lightscribe but I'm very wary of printing directly onto disks these days. A lot of 8x DVD-Rs from various manufacturers that I printed full-colour pictures on in 2005 have started to freeze and jump when played on domestic DVD players now.
