When we burn CD/DVD, we name them either using adhesive stickers or markers. Now we do not require any of these. The new technology is called LightScribe. LightScribe Direct-Disk-Labeling is a new optical media recording technology using which we can burn labels directly onto specially coated recordable optical media (CD and DVD) and create our own custom labels.

This technology uses special LightScribe disk writers and specially made CD/DVD. It will allow users to create custom made direct-to-disk labels. These labels are laser-etched and so there is no ink, no smudging and no peeling stickers.

What do you require?

As mentioned above, special hardware, software and media are required for this.
. Hardware - A LightScribe-enabled optical disc writer.
. Software - A LightScribe-supported software.
. Media - LightScribe-specific discs with special coating.

How to do it?

Burning the CD/DVD media is the same as any other. After burning, you need to flip the disc as the printed on the non-writable, non-glossy part of the disc. Using LightScribe-specific software, select the custom made image or from existing images and you can write it on to the disc. The discs will be adorned with very attractive gray-scale images which are similar to black and white photography.

LightScribe is originally the registered trademark of Hewlett-Packard (HP) Development Company.

LightScribe-specific discs are coated with a dye that chemically change when it absorbs infra-red laser light. LightScribe-enabled CD/DVD writers contain a special laser (780nm). When this laser beam falls on the thin dye coating on the label side of the disc, it causes a chemical change in the die coating that shows up as a visible point on the disc. With laser precision, the closely controlled laser beam scribes the desired image on to the surface of the spinning disc. The result is a high resolution reproduction of your own custom made artwork, text or photos on your discs.

A new computer could cost anywhere from Rs. 13500/- where as you could get a reasonably good used computer in the range of Rs. 4000 to Rs. 7000 depending on the age and the configuration of the system. The obvious attractiveness in the option of buying a used computer is the price. Buying a certified used system is an excellent way to familiarize you and your family to the exciting world of computers and internet at perhaps 1/3 the cost of a new system. If you are buying a computer solely for gaming purposes you should perhaps stop reading any further and go for a brand new computer. Most the new games in the market require not just the latest technologies but also the higher end versions of the same. If however you are looking to buy a computer for introducing you or your kids to programming, or to explore the internet or simply to watch movies, a used computer could meet your needs. There are however several aspects the customer needs to verify before buying a used computer. A full scandisk has to be run on all the drives to ensure that there are not too many bad sectors. A few bad sectors shouldn't be a big worry. Try a CDROM and/or DVDROM in the drive to check that the drives are functioning properly. Run a memory test using the Ubuntu memory test feature. Boot using the Ubuntu CD and select the memory test option. Make sure that the connectivity devices are working correctly - network card and/or modem. Try connecting to the net and verify. Verify that all the addon cards are working fine - check sound and video. Ensure that the monitor does not display unusual symptoms after keeping on for a couple of hours. Ensure that the internals - processor, motherboard, smps - does not create any problems after being kept on for a few hours. The prices of the used computers vary based on the Processor, Motherboard, Hard Disk, RAM, other components and accessories.

Thanks in advance. webmaster access_time 17 Feb 2019 - 17:55 In reply to I want to buy a used Computer by Anonymous (not verified) The easiest way to get hold of a used computer is from your friends. If any of your friends are planning to buy new PCs then you can get hold of their old computer. Both of you will get a good bargain out of the deal as you are taking the middleman out of the deal. If you can't find anybody who is planning to upgrade then your best bet would be your local computer store or craigslist. Had you been in Trivandrum we could have arranged a used PC for you :) Pagination Current page 1 Page 2 Next page Next › Last page Last » Add new comment

One of the strange types of complaints we receive from our customers is "The system was working fine till yesterday, I had shut down the system and it is not booting now". Strange as it may sound the common feature of these support requests included burnt motherboards, non-functional PCI Card slots and sometimes burnt Ethernet cards. One common factor in such cases was that these customers had Asianet Dataline as their internet service. Asianet's cable line is prone to power surges that could burn your modem, ethernet card and if you are unlucky motherboard, processor and even monitor. The possible reason for this is that they depend a lot on KSEB transmission posts to support their cable infrastructure and they do not have surge protection devices at the customer side of the cables. Whatever be the reason there is a risk of power surges damaging the computer connected through Asianet Dataline. Asianet themselves confirm this issue by specifically requesting users to not connect through the USB or on-board ethernet card and instead use a PCI ethernet card to connect. Following are some precautionary steps you should be taking to protect your PC if you are an Asianet Dataline subscriber Always connect to Asianet Dataline using a PCI Ethernet card. Spending an additional 200-300 bucks is worth it. DONOT connect to Asianet Dataline using the USB port DONOT connect to Asianet Dataline using the onboard ethernet card (built-in network card) Physically disconnect your Asianet Dataline cable from the modem when you are not using internet. Physically disconnect your Asianet Dataline cable from the modem when there is rain and/or thunder and/or lightning Computers Hardware Networking Leave a reply Your email address will not be published.

LightScribe, as discussed above, is a technique using which you can print your own custom made labels and pictures on to the non-burning side of specially made CD or DVD media. The only difference is that these new media will have a special dye coating which enables the image to be laser-etched on to its surface. LightScribe enabled media (CD/DVD) are available in the market. You will have to ask for them.
