I'm one user who has actually found DiscLabel to be a pretty usable piece of software.

Although it has shortcomings and limitations, those are more than made up by the accuracy of the built-in templates.

I have used a few other CD/DVD labelling applications, and they all required me to endlessly tweak and adjust the settings when using the standard templates that were supposed to match various label templates, and even when printing directly onto discs.

DiscLabel just worked for me.

It could be that I was just lucky. Without any detailed information about why the other reviewers find this software doesn't meet their expectations, I can't comment on their reviews in any meaningful way.

As I mentioned earlier, DiscLabel isn't perfect.
One strange bit of behaviour I experienced with it, was when upgrading to a newer version, the colours of previously saved designs were inverted/corrupted.

Fortunately I didn't need those designs any more. If I had needed them, it would have been a huge inconvenience to repeat the work.

One item I would wish for, is the ability to save or export designs for archiving and exchange with others. (Exporting editable designs into a common interchange format would be ideal.)

Even with the shortcomings, I find myself returning to DiscLabel whenever I need to print labels onto optical media.

You can definitely export designs for archiving and sharing. To export a design, select the design in the list then choose File -> Export... Use "DiscLabel" as the format. Specify where to save your exported design and click Save. To import a design exported in this way, choose File -> Import, navigate to your design file, and click Open.

I pretty much agree with PETER BLACK. I've had nothing but frustration dealing with this hackie junk and I'm going elsewhere!

I hate this app and the developers are not that responsive. I've used it since 3.1 and have seen GUI changes that have just been confusing. Other problems like problems selecting text have not been solved. What pisses me off the most is the constant money grubbing for every new update. In stark comparison is Koingo where I have had years of upgrades for free. Today I find DL just plain confusing - I have a CD label and want to make a jewel case cover label and can't figure it out, nor will the program do it for me - that would be a welcome change and worth $$$! YMMV but I'm looking elsewhere unless these guys give me a free upgrade and improve the app.

My first experience with DiscLabel was with version 5.1. I purchased it shortly after purchasing a LightScribe writer, because as far as I know it is the only non-brand-specific means of creating a full-face graphical label on a LightScribe disc.

It performs that function well, burning the label to a disc in my Pioneer external drive with no significant problems.

I appreciate the effort to link into the iLife suite.

I do not like the program's interface. Several parts of it look visually broken in Leopard, with random rectangles and shading scattered around the window. After using many beautiful Mac apps over the past several years, this feels like a return to Windows shareware in terms of UI appeal.

Other apps perform similar on-screen layout functions with a much better "feel" ... perhaps the devs should take a look at what others are doing for a little inspiration. Mac users like standard toolbars, palettes, HUDs, etc.

Also, I do not like being bugged to consider purchasing their Business Pack of graphics every time I start my PAID, REGISTERED app as of v5.1.2. Clicking "Later" results in me seeing the offer every time I start the app.

Basically while this works well for what it advertises, it feels like a Panther app that's not quite at home on Leopard in many senses. There are no functionality problems, though ... if you want to burn LightScribe discs with plenty of control over your label, you probably need DiscLabel.

i've been using discLabel since version 3x. every now and then i kept trying out various other labeling apps but i've always been coming back to discLabel for its functionality and ease of use. version 5 works like a charm and in my opinion is the best disc labeling app for the mac out there.

Using only the demo copy, I gave up after 15 minutes of trying to print a test. Two other apps I tried had it printed in under 5.

This is not an intuitive program. Too many buttons that work with iLife need to have a pref to remove them if one does not use iLife, iPhoto, and so forth.

I was really hoping this would do what I wanted, but it was frustrating to use.

I purchased the box edition of this software. Inside was version 1.3, which does not function with Tiger OS 10.4. I emailed disclabel support and received a response with fix within 45 minutes!

So far, I have been very pleased with the results from this program and customer support.

I can´t print my labels, even if I choose the right format in the paper-section. It is easy to use, but annoying, not to get any printed results.
