Hello. I have about 300 VHS tapes I want to burn to DVDs. I have decided to go the route of a DVD/VHS combo box instead of burning the shows from my computer. (I will buy a Panasonic DMR-ES45VS machine.)

Now I need to figure out a way to label the disks. I have been warned by many people to avoid putting paper labels on the disks like the plague! What should I do? Should I buy a printer? (I don't want to spend too much money on this.) The Epson R260 is an option, but I read several reviews saying that the ink is expensive and the cartriges don't last long. I read something about LightScribe technology. I could buy a DVD burner with this technology. I would put the disk in my computer and label it and THEN move it to the DVD/VHS combo to do the copying. However, I read that LightScribe requires special disks. Is this true? Can I use the Taiyo Yuden disks with this? (See link at bottom of this post to see what I'm talking about.)

Thanks in advance for the help.
