There’s usually not much space to write on a disc so I abbreviate whenever I can. Example: Firewall = FW, Underworld: Evolution = UW2, Skeleton Key = S. Key. Am I the only one?
Do you mean writing on the disc surface itself with a felt-tipped pen?
Nope, can’t say I do that.
I write on labels which I attach to the storage binder that I use to store my backups. Sometimes I use those evil paper envelope holder things and just write on the envelope.
I never write on a disc, I use printable discs
As far as the volume label, I use abbreviations but include a DISC.ID file with more details inside the disc
Idefinitely don’t abbreviate.
what happens when a year from now you’re looking through your movies trying to decide what to watch and you see FW?
it’s not like it’s a LOTR or something that is commonly referred to be an acronym. If i came across a FW dvd I would assume it’s a storage dvd full of past firmwares for me drives!
i use a sharpie and print full titles on the dvd itself.
I echo Forum Member reasonsnotrules above comments.
