I have the BenQ 162I, 1640 (i believe that is the model as it is still in the box, it came out after the 162I) and i also have the sony 810UL. I used the 162I the most and am very happy with the backups that I do. After seeing some of my friends dvd's that use "light scribe"; 1. LG 16X Lightscribe External Dvd Rewriter (GSA- E 10L); I was impressed with the exterior of the DVD artwork put on the outside of the dvd, title, small pic etc. st the Future Shop for $109.99 2.HP DVD 940 e which uses Light Scribe as well and sells at the Future Shop for $159.99 here in Canada 3. HP DVD 840 e which uses Light Scribe as well and sells at the Future Shop for $139.99 I wondered if any of these have book management capabilities as with my BenQ 162I and my Sony 810 UL I always burn in DVD ROM. Are any of these able to be set to that? Also when I spoke to the sales Rep re the LG Model GSA-E10L, he simply recommended Phillips DVD R- or R+ media. I am a little confused as I thought that there were special media that one had to use and I already have a considerable supply of media for my BenQ and Sony that do excellent jobs but was wanting to try to burn an image into the other side of the dvd to give it a better look instead of merely writng on it. I know that I had an earlier LG about a year and a half ago and it was problematic in that the dvd's that I burned did not always work in different dvd players of various vintages. And one last question, maybe there is a software that will allow me to burn an image onto the dvd?? I don't want to use a label on the dvd. I was told by one person that I talked to in the store that this process of Lightscribe is very time consuming, is this true?? I have a couple of notebooks setup to do my backups, all have Any DvD and one has Nero, the other 1 Click DVD Copy, the other has Sly softs Clone Dvd. I really would appreciate experienced comments as to which of the above would be a decent burner with DVD ROM settings on it and also whether or not there is a software out there that could do the same thing on all of my 3 burners that I already am content with except that i would like to print on the external of the dvd??? I look forward to experienced comments. Thankyou. I should say that all of the above burn to dual layer as well.
