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 [email protected] 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.

Worked perfectly! - I needed an app to do a bunch of quick cd labels for my daughter's birthday. This app was priced well, and did the job perfectly. It even had a printing template for some labels I bought at a discount store!
DOES NOT WORK PROPERLY WITH EL CAPITAN ON MAC!!! - Since upgrading to El Capitan IOS on my Imac Disc Cover 3 no longer detects my lightscribe device as being connected, and reads (NO LIGHTSCRIBE DEVICE AVAILABLE). Prior to downloading El Capitan Disc Cover 3 worked great! Since then it has been nothing short of useless :( If the problem was fixed it would easily be 4-5 stars, unfortunately right now it is un usable. Please Correct the issue so that the $34.99 spent has not gone to waste.

A truly useful app! - First of all, contrary to what other reviews I’ve read, THIS APP WORKS GREAT with El Capitan! I had been struggling using MS Word for Mac and an Avery label app printing CD ROM labels with their stock forms. I never could get the alignment correct and was wasting label forms. Totally unsat! So I did an online search and found Disc Cover 3. I bought it and in minutes had successfully printed my first CD ROM label. The interface is easy to use, and the graphics that are included are extensive and a value added benefit to me. The tutorials are well done, but I found the interface to easy to use I did not need them. I now can print custom CD ROM labels properly everytime. Great job Belight Software! This product is well worth the price, and I am very pleased to have it in my tool box of useful apps. FYI I am using El Capitan version 10.11.6.
Doesn’t work with MAC - Downloaded El Capitan and although it says it was updated to work with El Capitan, I still can’t get it to work. Very bummed!
Great Product - 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.
DOES NOT WORK WITH SIERRA! - This app worked perfectly until I updated to Sierra. So, actuallly it is Sierra that messed it up and not the app itself. I get an error message and it spits the cd out before any printing is done. It sure would be nice if Apple actuallly checked its software with the apps sold in the Apple Store BEFORE it did an “upgrade”!
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.
