Im a DJ who's interested in getting a lightscribe CD burner to make Demo's and Mixtape CDs.  I did some research and read some articles that it takes on average 20-30 minutes to burn an image, depending on how detailed and large the graphic is.  The article was from the summer of 08......has this been improved at all since?
Also does anyone know of any external burners that will do say 20 or 50 Cd's at a time?  Copy the music on one side and then burn the image to the other side?   I know they make high volume burners for  CD burners...just wondering if Lightscribe technology has made a high volume CD Burner yet?

No,

First, the disc would have to be flipped over.  2nd, the duplicators don't have the software to run Lightscribe... you would have to do them manually.  It does take 15 - 18 minutes to do a nice graphic.

So I found a automatic (Robotic) light scribe duplicator by Systor that is a stand alone machine.....it will do up to 25 Cds at a time.  because it doesnt connect to the computer, I asked there tech support how I would make a master copy to produce copies from.  he told me for the data or audio part of the CD, I would burn a music CD and put it in the duplicator and copies would be made from this master.  Then for the lightscribe side, I would flip over the cd's to be copied with the image.  I would then copy the image to be burned onto the cd's lightscribe side, on to a regular CD from my computer and save the file as a LIF(not sure if this is the correct extension which lightscribe uses to burn images)   then I insert this cd with the image file on it into the duplicator as the Master CD and supposidly it  will read this and burn the image that I saved onto the top of the light scribe CDs. 

My question is I never heard of the ext. LIF......is this the type of file Lightscribe uses to burn images?   Can I save templates and custome templates in this format to put on a cd and use this in the duplicator?

this is the link of the duplicator I was thinking about getting
