I use the site (cdcovers.cc) all the time and never get spyware or adware. Try Spybot and Adaware for free protection, they work great and it's free!!!

I hope you don't mean you are going to put a label directly on the DVD, but rather on the case only.

You are asking for trouble by putting a label on a DVD, they are not like CD's and are far more critical of any weight imbalance due to the amount of data stored and the method it was written.

Some will say they never have problems using them, but it can in fact damage your DVD stand alone player laser. Word to the wise, don't use them.

Not true, people who use standard weight paper labels will always be asking for trouble, but there are ultra light weight, ultra thin (much like tracing paper) brands out there eg tudor or avery, made specifically for such an application, that have no effect whatsoever on disc weight, and dont cause disproportional spinning. Have you ever looked at the silk screening on some stamped DVD's? The ink used is different thicknesses on different parts of the disc, the ink's weight would be close to that of paper, yet never has an effect.

Haven't seen those, but then again I never looked since after all my reading on the matter, it was not advised to use labels but rather purchase a printer that can print directly on DVD's.

One thing to consider is the media that you will be using, if the labels are very thin, the text and logo's many DVD's display may show through the label, the ideal situation would be to use media that has no writing whatsoever.

Have you used those thin labels and did they hide any text or logo's on the media?

Re: dvd labels

Skip the paper labels and get an epson r200 that will print directly on inkjet printable cd and dvd. I got one and it only cost 99 bucks. The labels look awesome as well.

The paper can be hard to find as they are relatively new, they dont state 'for cd/dvd applications' but unofficially are. As scum1 said though paper labels are a dying breed as disc printers are so cheap, i myself am looking at getting one to put labels to rest.

If the label is a light colour you can make out the media's logo unfortunately.

Well having almost 300 DVD's all labeled with a sharpie I'm not about to go out and buy another printer for labeling them. All of them have the original cover art work. Once I put the DVD into the drawer I can't admire the label, but with the nice case I can read it while the DVD plays.
Actually it would have been nice, but at this juncture I'm both too lazy and cheap to do it. Nice talking with ya.

Re: dvd labels

There seems to be a lot of peole here that hate labels kinda reminds me of my friends that only like Macs and hate PC's. I've been using labels for years and haven't had a problem. It sounds to me from reading most of these posts that a lot of the problems are probably user errors. Most probably falling under the ID10T classification. anyway, I am posting this to try to put an end to the label "horror stories" out there. Get rid of the CD top-loader from '83 and you shouldn't havea prob, Bob.

Re: dvd labels

Im having a problem using cdcovers.cc.
#1 If I save as to the program Print CD doesnt recognize the image?
#2 If I save to desktop and open with Print Cd, still doesnt fit right.
#3 If I copy, paste and resize, the inner hub gets bigger and leaves a ring.

To sum it up, I have printed hundreds of lables that worked out great, its just that on hub printable dvd's I can never seem to print all the way to the hub without getting a blank space left about 1/8.

*I'm Using an Epson R200 printer with Ritek Ridata White Inkjet printable dvd's, and software that came with printer.

Re: dvd labels

Try these settings. inner diameter 22 outer diameter 119. Print cd does not like them and will warn you about leting disc dry 24 hours. I use the r200 as well

I got these from someone else don't remember where but they work well for me.
If you save as a bitmap the print cd software should recognize it
I stretch all 4 sides of the dvd and usually it fits pretty well

As for the cost of ink. Yes it is expensive so I don't make a dvd covers for everything but some I do for fun. I still have a bunch of cds and dvds with a sharpie label on them

Re: dvd labels

Yes they will be wet, so you will have to leave them on a table, etc. for a couple of hours to dry.

Get a better disc! Make sure you have injet printable and not thermal, make sure you are set right for standard top or premium top (premium takes awhile longer to dry). mine dry in like 10 minutes.

I use the Epson R200 as well and print on ProDisc printable discs. Over 150 and no trouble.

I tried paper labels at first as well. After 5, I stopped that - nothing but trouble.
