[filmscanners] Re: How to label CD backups



I used to do that on (audio) disks, but stopped with that. The labels were
rpinted with a picture and sometimes they seemed to become saturated with
the ink (HP 930 printer) and started to come off. In most cases you could
remove the label and still use the cd, but in one case the disk became
unplaybable.
Now I use pens from Nashuatec (from the computer supply shop) and I hope
they won't cause trouble during the life of the CD (which anyway is not
unlimited, or at least untill I move to the next system (DVD in whatever
format will have won next year).

PS: just to make sure = a sharpie is NOT a sharp object?
