The topaz side is likely to be the recordable dye layer. The silver side
is the metal reflective layer that isn't changed by the laser. There
are also some clear (to our eyes) dyes that make both sides seem about
the same. And double sided media (not to be confused with double-layer
media) also exists, some of which is for use in the LightScribe
Of course you can always just try it. The side where K3B says "No media
present" is the wrong side. --Don
