? 'bout labels

WOW! Is this possible?

One burn, scanned with and without label appliedā€¦ :frowning:

Certainly blows me away. Guess I could go to a disc printer, a magic marker isnā€™t too appealing!

Yessir, adhesive labels throw off the balance of a disc and greatly REDUCE readability and compatibility of the disc.
Your test proves it once again.


#3

Did you use the label before the recording? If not, it shouldnā€™t be a problem as long as the disc is read well.


#4

Would printing directly to the disc have the same result? How 'bout labeling the disk before burning?

Damn, maybe it magic marker timeā€¦ Thanks-

The low tech magic marker is a safer route to go. The label can throw the whole balance of the disc off. Remember, a 52x burn runs at 10,000 rpm! If you must put a label on the disc, do it after the burn.

Perhaps it could destroy your drive. Never try it. :slight_smile:

Iā€™m serious. Some people got hurt exactly from that kind of mistakes. Samsung had troubles.


#7

From the sound of the crack when the disc fractured in my drive, I could definitely see people getting hurt from this. It sounded like a hammer hitting the metal case at full force.

With a disc printer, you can make the design so that it balances weight symetrically. You will not be be able to do that with a paper label, as there will always be a larger margin of error in placing the paper, which weighs a lot more than the ink.

I often use a pen with soft touch.

No labels,not of the paper variety, at least. The guys are 1000% correct,the paper throws off the symmetrical weight of the disc. Get a Sharpieā€¦
