I usually back up my dvds with a HP lightscribe burner and I use maxwell disk. The programs I use are dvd shrink and nero. It works like a charm. Right now I am trying to do the same but with verbatim lightscribe disc. I cant seem to get them to work for some reason. I even switched to imgburn instead of nero and it still wont work. Does anyone know if HP burners and verbatim disc work okay with each other. I hear that verbatim are the best lightscribe, but I have not seen it yet.
