DVD labelling

  Newuser891 17:33 19 May 2004

All my Cds are labelled. I have been told that DVDs should not be labelled as the lable upset the balance of the DVD and so they will not play properly. Is this true? Has anyone any ideas about labellinng the DVD discs?

I have always labelled all my CD's and DVD's and never had a problem.

Who gave you this info and on what grounds?

Don't worry about it.

P.S. I'm assuming here that you use the full circular labels.

you could always by a new printer that will print directly onto the disc be it cd or dvd

i have seen some very good results,

I also agree with exit, have just bought an Epson R300 + printable cd/dvd's. No more worries
