    No. The lightscribe burner burns the image on the lightscribe disc.

    No you do not. However you do need special 'Lightscribe' discs, and a Lightscribe enabled disc.

    A dye in the surface of the discs turns dark when subjected to the laser light from the disc writer.

    Nope. Just the lightscribe discs.

    No - but you need to buy the Lightscribe discs. They're photo-sensitive - the react to a laser light.

    Nope not at all, the information is etched to a special layer on the top of the disc by a laser.
