Is it OK to write on inkjet printable CDRs?


I’ve been looking at Verbatim Super Azo CDRs in two different shops. One shop sells the normal “crystal” surface type for £6.99, and the other shop sells the new wide inkjet printable type for £4.99.

Is it OK to write on inket printable CDRs, as they’re cheaper in this case.


You can write on an inkjet printable CD-R with a pen if you want, but don’t use a ballpoint pen, fountain pen, or other sharp object or you might damage the data layer of the CD-R which is very close to the top surface.

Use a soft filt-tip pen or one of the pens specifically made for writing on CD/DVDs.

I.e., just like any other type of disc.
