No, you need lightscribe media.

Sorry I misread your post. Of course you can burn data, but not burn a label on the reverse side, for that you need lightscribe discs

Yes you can.

In case any of you haven't figured this out yet, you can burn the label side of lightscribe discs more than once. This is useful for :
1) Making the label darker
2) Adding some text which you missed off by mistake

You can even take the disc out of the drive and put it back in to re-burn the label, the drive will always line up exactly with whatever has already been printed.
