Hi, I just got a new mac book and I was wondering if my standard MAT****A DVD-R UJ-857D Hard drive will support Lightscribe technology. Don't know much about lightscribe, but it seems kinda cool, so I am wondering if we can do that with the mac book.

Thanks in advance for any insight.

You will need an external DVD writer, connected via USB. Also you'll need a drive that has software to support Macs.

looks like it! I've been wondering about lightscribe. seems quite cool.

She figured out that the only way to keep from being frozen was to stay in motion,
and long ago converted most of her flesh into liquid.
Now when she smells danger, she spills herself all over, like gasoline, and lights it.

I have Lightscribe on 2 of my burners - I find it slow (about 30 mins), limited graphics and the media is more expensive.

I prefer using my Canon IP4200 printer which can print on suitable media in under 2 minutes.
