I accept that mialigned labels can cause problems but to me a worst one is the damage to the coating on the back of a cd/dvd. One small scratch/mark can totaly destroy data. a label effectivly protects this surface. Provided the labels are from a reputable supplier who would research the effect their addesive has on the surface.

And what effect has the solvents in the ink on the coating.

I think its a matter of you are dammed if you do and dammed if you don't

I favor labels for the disks I wish to keep and a perminant marke for disks I am not worried about loosing.

In my experiance the only disks I have lost isthose that were in plastic sleeves and somehow the sleeve scraped the back reflective coating. (Should have had labels on).

I now make an ISO image of the disks and store them on a hard drive and use a virtual drive to view as required.

Consumer inkjet's ink are waterbased. The effect ls likely neglable. I spray my discs with an acryilic based spray, i've noticed no issues thus far.

davidwon- memorex media according to many are a inferior disc - just what a lot of forums state - i have not used them but it seems like they reccomend verbatums or Taio yudens - if you broaden your base and search some other forums you can read a lot of comments on media - have seen many comments on people calling memorex memosucks - i just stay away from them due to that fact

I've used stick-on labels on CD-ROMs for quite a while,using the CD Stomper to assure perfect line-up. Never a problem.

Having said this, a note in the owner's manual of my new Honda Accord clearly states stick on labels should NOT be used on CD's played in the car. I don't use sticker labeled CD's.
