Thanks allot for answering my questions.
I am surprised by the defects of paper labels. I have CDrs that have them (had em for years now) and they still play fine.
Also, the problem here is that I'm in the USA and allot of these scratchless discs are being sold in the UK or somewhere else in Europe. What can I find here in the USA besides Imation?
I have a couple more questions:
1.) Where (in the USA) can I buy scratch resistant CDrs with solid black surfaces (i.e. no company logo at the top).
2.) I may buy some Imation scratchless CDs, however, understanding the problem with paper labels, I want to have the tops thermal printed (I don't have the money to buy a printer!). Is there a place online that I can send them to to have them specially done?
3.) I may buy these standard black on black CDrs:
Do they hold up?
4.) I am printing an album in about 100 copies. I want a standard CDr that will hold up under the stress & tear that CDrs usually go through. Which do you suggest?
5.) CDrs tend to scuff/scratch on the bottom surface easier than pro CDs. Are scratchless CDrs like Imation any better at deflecting abuse on this reading side?
Thanks for not killing the newbie.
