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.

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.

I am about to purchase TOAST, and I was hoping that had a disc label ability? Or will I need something like this also?

Does Toast offer the ability to make labels? another post, mentioned the possibility. I am considering by TOAST, and I hoping that makes labels. Otherwise this may be needed.

Wow - the program that came with my epson printer doesn't do all this. So this would be useful. And I want to know what "giving away copies" means.

I've used this program (well, tried it out anyway!) and it's pretty much the best in class. I've used the apps that Roxio included, in the past (Discus LE, Disc Cover RE) and a couple of apps that were included with disc labeling software. I've used so many, I can't even remember them all! DiscLabel blows them all out of the water. Not just in features, but also in ease of use. The interfaces of the other apps were sometimes, *crude* to say the least. I'd recommend this app anytime. It's especially useful because it includes Lightscribe support (yes, a couple of the others do too, but they are still just too much to bother with). On top of that, the app is from SmileOnMyMac, who are known for the quality of their apps. I personally already own a couple of their other apps. :-) Two thumbs up I say,

As noted below, I should compare this to the free lite version included with Toast (Disc Cover). I think I would tend to use it more for CD case liners and direct-on-cd rather than labels though, since I've read mixed opinions on stick-on labels. (But no shortage of opinions on that topic..._

Markers suffice for me! But it really is a nice slick program. You should be sure to offer this one again in a year!

Supposed to be very nice, but I'm getting "An error occurred executing script "launchscript.sh" Error = 256" when trying to launch the installer. I've downloaded several tijmes throughout the day, too.

I've been using UnCoverIt but it has a few limitations I don't like--having been a former graphic designer, I wanted a little more layout flexibility. So let's try this out...

DiscLabel has very nice iLife integration, and is a great solution if you use LightScribe. The layers feature allows you to work on images and text separate from each other easliy. Unlike Disc Cover, you can import album art (as opposed to just playlists), and you can also share your template designs with other Mac users via .Mac. Solid program all around, and you can even buy your supplies right in DiscLabel.
