LightScribe direct disc labeling 

• LightScribe is artistic: Create beautiful labels and burn them directly  

   to your LightScribe discs. 

• LightScribe is easy: Just burn your CD or DVD, then flip the disc 

   over and burn a label. 

• LightScribe can’t peel off, get stuck, or cause disc damage the way  

   paper labels can. 

• LightScribe direct disc labeling means no pens, no ink, no printer  

   and no sticky labels.    

Creative, fun and robust 

• Full software suite included—edit video, create slideshows, back up 

   music and data, create personalized label designs, and more.

• Surprise your family and friends with slideshows and home 

   movies, digitally preserved on DVD or CD, beautifully labeled with 

   your own personal touch and ready for playback.

• Experience high compatibility and quality results.    


LightScribe labeling requires LightScribe media. 


Storing 8.5 GB on one DVD requires double-layer media, sold separately. Also compatible with single-layer DVDs.


HP’s multiformat drive offers high speeds and double-layer recording,¹
and it’s LightScribe Version 1.2-ready for high-contrast LightScribe 
labeling.² It lets users easily preserve, edit and share up to 8.5 GB 
of video, photos, and multimedia presentations on one double-layer 
disc – and quickly store, back up and transport files on DVDs and 
CDs. The dvd1040e records double-layer DVDs at up to 8X, recordable 
DVDs at up to 20X, rewritable DVDs at up to 8X, and DVD-RAM at 
up to 12X.

LightScribe is the innovative new disc-labeling system that gives CDs and 
DVDs a neat, professional look without ink, pens, or paper labels. With 
LightScribe, you simply burn your data, flip the disc over, and burn a 
precise, silkscreen-like label directly onto your LightScribe CD or DVD.
