Consumable in pc terms generally refers to ink cartridges in printers.

Consuables on any system refer to stuff that is used then thrown.

I suppose that, theoretically, Blank DVDs would attract the label consumables, after all you have to keep putting in new ones unless you use rewritable ones and even then they will eventually wear out!

In my house the label for CD/DVD's is coaster!
