Yes. They have to say lightscribe on them, like these do: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=2412847&CatId=57
They have to say lightscribe because they're made different so the laser can write on the other side and create the image that the user made on the machine. Normal DVD's don't have that sort of surface and can't take advantage of the lightscribe capabilities. You can still burn regular DVD's in a lightscribe drive, you just can't create the fancy artwork on the disc by using the laser.
