LightScribe: HP's Clever Twist on the CD Burner

You can support this channel on Patreon! Link below I remember when LightScribe was first marketed, and let me tell you I thought it was *the* *coolest* *thing* to ever happen. Burning labels with lasers? No way! Well, it worked amazingly well. LightScribe wasn’t without its flaws, though, and in this video we’ll discuss a bit of its history, how it worked, and why it wasn’t a runaway success. Some links and stuff! Basic info and some details of operation came from here: https://www.pcworld.com/article/121297/article.html This is a patent you can look at for a LightScribe drive made in 2011 (kinda near the end of the run) https://patentimages.storage.googleapis.com/f1/5b/55/752ceaa7c6f109/US8040367.pdf If you happen to have a LightScribe drive and some media, but you’ve never installed anything to let you use it, check out Steve’s website. Some notes on compatibility--Apparently his free labeler doesn’t work with Windows 10. The LightScribe utilities do, and so does Nero 8 for what it’s worth. But if you’re desperate to get your Win10 PC into the LightScribe universe, you may face some challenges. https://lightscribesoftware.org/ Technology Connections on Twitter: https://twitter.com/TechConnectify The TC Subreddit: https://www.reddit.com/r/technologyconnections/ You can support this channel on Patreon!

DVD: The Death Knell of Laserdisc

You can support this channel on Patreon! Link below Well, it had a good run. Although Laserdisc could never really get off the ground, it had a reasonable showing in the high end video market. Intended as a mass market product, Laserdisc would never get there. But DVD... well that's a whole other story. In 7 or 8 years, DVD went from being introduced to being everywhere, and it is still selling pretty well in the face of streaming services such as Netflix. Just how long DVD can cling to life remains to be seen, but you can still stroll on into any big box store and pick up a DVD player and some movies to go with it. This video tells how DVD got started, and why it was able to succeed where Laserdisc failed. The clips used in this video are the property of their respective owners.

The original PlayStation is a pretty neat thing. Using the CD as a storage medium was a smart move. But, Sony needed to add anti-piracy features to the disc to prevent miscreants from making bootleg copies of Crash Bandicoot. This video tells the story of how that works, why it wasn’t infallible, and also proposes a potentially impervious solution (24 years late, though).

Here’s that paper on reading optical discs. It’s a good read:
