    Verbatim Corporation, the storage media producer known for offering the widest range of premium-quality LightScribe media, recently announced the world’s first Color-background LightScribe 16x DVD-R and DVD+R media. The new 4.7GB LightScribe DVDRs are available in vibrant shades of red, orange, yellow, blue and green in addition to the original gold color. Verbatim has begun shipping them in the US market in 25-packs which include five discs of each color. The richly colored DVDRs are produced using LightScribe Media Version 1.2 coating technology on the label side for enhanced image contrast and faster label printing. Verbatim claims that these new colored LightScribe DVDR discs are label-compatible with all current LightScribe-enabled drives.

    I swear by Vertbatim disks. I wish they had some images of the results - also wonder about the archival quality of the images.

    Picture of these or is it? Dated 03.09.2005: http://www.heise.de/newsticker/meldung/63559

    Weird, wound it by google picture search.

    Translation:
    "HP has on the new IFA colorful Light Scribe-blanks. Instead bronzefarbene have the new blanks red, yellow, orange, blue and green label."

    So HP has done this 2 years ago already, but those must be CDs then. Well colors are propably same, if not identical.
