Yamaha CD Burner with LASER Labeling
Check this out:

My question is: Which side does the label go on??? The burnt side I guess huh??? My follow up question is: If you burn the label will it decrease the amount of data you could burn on the disc???

Pretty cool technology :)

Yes, the Yamaha burner uses it's laser to generate the pattern on the data side of the CD. This does mean that you lose capacity on the disk in order to burn the label on. The further in the label goes, the less capacity the CD has.

Ah, thems were the days... I can remember using a dual speed CD writer when they were still fairly new to the retail market. About 1 in 10 discs completed the burn cycle successfully, and about half of those came out readable... come to think of it, that was a Yamaha, too!

I got the 'then new' 16x when it first came out. Blew $225 on it only to return it and get a plextor 12x for under half the price. Only coasters have been my fault. Had an HP 2x that worked like a champ too. Took close to 3 days to burn a cd, but they worked :-D
