LightScribe actually scratches the special coating off the discs to create etched 'labels'
That is not what LightScribe says: the reverse side of the disk is coated with a coloured layer, which is burnt away by the laser where you want it ‘scratching’, and as the same beam is used for writing on the other face, I do not see where the scratching can come from.

No special software or discs needed
I do not have to acquire special software, because the maker of the computer supplied it; I would have to buy the special disks. I do not know yet how well the software performs, and it may turn out that Vista provides all I need, and it may perform better.

gone back to the imation
Thank you: Imation is one brand that is recommended then.
