    1-I know that one can write on the inner circle rim but can i safely
    write on the lable side surface (no lable) over the tracks?

    2-What is the prefered marker to use? Sharpie, or what do you prefer?
    TIA - AL

    They actually sell permanent type markers that are specifically for writing
    on CD/DVD media. They are available at just about any office supply store

    They do that because people will buy anything.

    I've been using regular Sharpies for years to label thousands of discs, with
    n'er a problem.

    Label side is fine, Sharpies are fine.

    DVDs, unlike CDs, are especially non-critical because the reflective
    layer is in the center of the disk instead of on the outside. Even so, I
    have marked lots of CDs with a Sharpie and never a problem.

  5. I really like the Sharpie Ultra Fine Point.

    And since the disk surface is a good plastic, if you screw up
    writing you can remove the marker with a cloth/towel slightly
    dampened with alcohol.

    sharpies are what I use also.

    dvd recorders suck.

    all the sharpies I have seen all say they're permanent markers.

    including the ultra fine tipped ones.

    How do you remove permanent marker writing from dvd discs with just a
    cloth/towel and alcohol.

    common sense tells me that permanent means permanent.

    BTW, the alcohol to use is NOT Jack Daniels, beside being a damn waste
    of booze, it attracts ants.

    Yup, sharpies come off with rubbing alchohol. I would think that you would
    have known that, after all you do an awfull lot of rubbing.
