LightScribe and Labelflash Direct Disc Labeling
Burning your design straight to CDs and DVDs from LightScribe and Labelflash™ has never been simpler. Disc Cover was even the first Mac OS X disc labeling program to support DiscT@2 technology. So you won't be surprised when you hear that Disc Cover offers a collection of designs optimized for LightScribe media.
NOTE: HP discontinued support for LightScribe in 2013. The latest driver is not compatible with OS X 10.11 El Capitan.
Tons of Paper Layouts for Great Results
Disc Cover supports tons of label paper formats from the most popular manufacturers, including Avery, Neato, Memorex, and others. If you don't find the layout you need, use the intuitive custom layout dialog.
Printing right to the top of your discs with the help of a direct-to-disc printer is also no problem. Disc Cover is compatible with printers from HP, Epson, Canon, and other manufacturers.
• Fixed a problem that could cause a crash on El Capitan when resizing the application's window and in some other cases.
• Other minor fixes and improvements.
Ratings and Reviews
This app works fine in El Capitan and Sierra
Several reviews claim that the app doesn’t work in El Capitan or Sierra. That’s not true—I have used the app in both versions of OS X to label inkjet-printable DVDs on a Canon MX-922 printer.
Setting up the app is tricky, and that issue is compounded by the fact that it appears to be a port of a Windows app. The Print dialog has two pages. On the first page, the ‘Output’ field must be set to ‘Direct to CD/DVD’, and the Printer and Tray Type dropdowns must be set to match your printer. On the second page, the ‘Layout’ dropdown must be reset to ‘Quality and Media’; the Media Type dropdown must be set to ‘Printable disc (recommended)’; and the Paper Source dropdown must be set to ‘Disc tray’. Not the easiest app to set up, but once configured, it does a good job.
And to the reviewer who criticized Apple because they hadn’t configured the app correctly: This isn’t an Apple app. It’s from a third party developer, and it’s their responsibility to maintain the app so that it continues to work under newer versions of the OS. And it’s your responsibility to configure the app properly for your printer. I knocked a star off my rating for the difficulty in configuring this app properly, but I’d give your review a one-star rating, if that was possible.
FINALLY a Reliable Lable Software for Macs!
As a freelance filmmaker labeling DVDs and Blu-rays has been the bane of my profession. Working on a Mac has made it very frustrating to find a labeling software that is reliable, remains updated and simply allows you to customize your label from the ground up rather than being limited to using tacky templates.
I had previously used Disc Label but they've stopped updating the software and if you upgrade to Mojave it won't even open. I've even used Canon's Image Garden with very frustrating results. I attempted two other labeling softwares within the app store that were useless with almost no real customization options (you get what you pay for).
I'm happy to report after just seven minutes I had a nice design created within Disc Cover 3 and I was able to print the design directly to a disc on my Canon Pixma printer. Disc Cover 3 was easy to navigate and simple to import my own custom label design, although I will say their pre-made templates are definitely usable.
Finding the right disc-tray settings was easy and the instructions to calibrate the label printing (which I highly recommend you do first) was straightforward.
Thank you Belight Software for making a simple label design software that gets the job done!
I bought this product to replace SureThing label making software I used on Windows. Although I don’t use the inserts and all of the other stuff I will say that the label making software far exceeds what I had. I am able to do all types of backgrounds, text and labels. The software is simple and intuitive. It has a wide selection of stock templates so I was able to find my template for the labels I use and start using it. One of the great things is the horizontal and vertical rulers that help you micro adjust your specific labels in your printer. I have had zero problems on the Mac. This product met and exceeded my label needs.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
