Where to Buy LightScribe CD or DVD Discs in 2018
Buying LightScribe CD or DVD Discs in 2018


Dear Fellow LightScriber,

Since LightScribe CD and DVD discs have become unavailable in local stores the one question I’m asked most is:

“Steve, where can I buy a LightScribe discs today?”

The only other question that comes close is: Where can I buy a LightScribe DVD burner? But by far the most requested, is information on LightScribe discs.

And as you are reading this, I guess, you want to know this as well πŸ™‚


LightScribe Disc Options

The picture at the top of this page shows a sample of currently available LightScribe CDs and DVDs – It’s by no means all, but is a good representation of what you can get now in 2018.

LightScribe CD-r in 10s, 25s and 50s

LightScribe DVD+R in 10s,15s and 25s

And COLOR LightScribe DVD+R in 25s.

By, Verbatim, Philips and HP, to name a few…


Disc Options in 2018 – Online Only

As I said on the LightScribe Drive Page I’m not going to mince words, the opions now in 2018 are not as great as they once were.

As far as I know (if you know differently, please let me know…) there are no physical stores that sell LightScribe discs anymore. You can only get them online, and then only from a very few places.


Amazon Links

I want you to know a few things upfront:

1: I have always recommended folks go to Amazon for LightScribe Drives and Discs as they have always had the widest and most competitively priced selection.

2: However, in April 2018 I joined the Amazon Associates Program. Here is a link to read up on all that, but the gist of it, is this:

The product links on this page (and any others on this site that point to Amazon) are Amazon affiliate links. What this means is: should you buy a product from Amazon after going there via one of the links, I will get a small commission.

3: The price you pay will be identical to the price you would have paid if you had not used one of the links – In other words, you pay the same either way.


Unbiased Advice

All the above in no way influences what I say on this site.

My goal, now, as it has always been, is to give you the best help and support in your LightScribe journey.

So with all that said, let’s take a look at what is available in each disc category.


LightScribe CD-R Discs

If you are like me you use a lot of LightScribe CDs and thankfully they are still available.

When I started using LightScribe back in 2006 and for many years, I always used Verbatim. I still do, but of late, I have switched to using more and more Philips discs.

Here are two options depending on how many discs you need:


Verbatim CD-R 10 Pack
Check Price on Amazon

Verbatim 700 MB 52x LightScribe CD-R 10 Disc Pack


Philips CD-R 25 Cake Pack
Check Price on Amazon

Philips Lightscribe CD-R 52X 700MB 80min - 25 Discs


LightScribe DVD+R Discs

While CD’s a great for music, DVDs and essential for movies and much larger files. So having LightScribe DVD+R discs still available is a must for many avid LightScribe fans.

Once again you can get various pack sizes depending on your needs:


Verbatim DVD+R 10 Pack
Check Price on Amazon

Verbatim Light Scribe DVD+R Discs, 4.7GB, 16x 10Pack


HP LightScribe DVD+R 15 Disc Pack
Check Price on Amazon

HP LightScribe DVD+R 15 Disc Pack



Verbatim COLOR DVD+R 25 Cake Pack
Check Price on Amazon


Verbatim 16x DVD+R LightScribe COLOR Backgound - 25 Pack


Yes, you can still get these great 5 Color background discs. So if you want a change from the standard ‘Gold’ just grab some of these and bring some LightScribe color to your life πŸ™‚


In Conclusion

I hope this run through of what LightScribe CD and DVD discs are currently available has been helpful.

Please remember, like all stock online these particular brands in these quantities will come and go, so if you don’t find a particular one available when you look, I would suggest you choose another that fits your requirements as you may have a wait for restocking.


Note: My only caveat is this, where possible go with a recognized brand. Verbatim, Philips, HP, Memorex to name a few.

Whatever you decide to get, my hope is as always, that you keep enjoying LightScribe for a long time to come.

As always, if you have any questions please Contact Me and I will be glad to help.


Happy Scribing…
