writing on cds

Do you have to use a special marker to write on cd-r’s, or can you use one
of those Sharpee ones?

I use only special markers for this.

BTW, did You use ever Your ZIP drive since You purchased a CD writer?

I did not use my ZIP since summer 1999 when I purchased my CD burner

Yes, but not for much longer. We had to use zip disks all this time for my
school, because they didn’t have cd burners in most of the machines. I was
able to bring my work home only if I used a zip disk, which is necessary
as leaving work on the school computers was so insecure and stupid as to
not be an option…

Luckily now they are installing more and more cd burners, so most teachers
are switching to recommending using cd-rs in track-at-once mode and
leaving them open for multiple sessions.

AHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

Most CD-Rs have the actual media substance on the TOP side of the CD. I
know Memorex does, as an example. If you scratch the TOP of the CD, you’ll
ruin the media. Be careful!

How does that affect labelling? I mean when you use stickers and whatnot?

Stickers and felt markers work fine. I use them all the time. (now 32
generations of backups on my current project). But I tried a ball-point
pen one time, and when you look at the bottom of the CD, I can see what I
wrote showing through the metal material.

How hard do you write??? Boy you need less stress in your life. :slight_smile:

I downloaded and burned Mandrake 8 last weekend and marked them with a
ball point. no problem, But I just used normal pressure.

Hey, I’m not saying it’ll happen every time. I’m just saying there there
are CDRs out there that apply the actual medium to the top of the CD, so
there is a chance that scratching the top of the CD will damage the media.

-Mike K.

thats true. ive read things saying the label side is more “fragile” then
the data side, since the data side has a thick protective layer (thick
relative to the thickness of the cd)

i just use the sharpies to write on them, so i dont worry much
