    Nope. Why would a label that weighs an ounce cause any problems.

    Some people have reported that the adhesive used by these labels were damaging the CD-R. Then some companies used "glue" that would after time suddenly loose it's stickyness and the label and cd were stuck in the drive.

    I think these days labels from well known companies are quite good (they don't want law-suits). I personally use Neato labels and haven't had a problem (yet!).

    I remember when my home town library first started lending out CDs. They really didn't understand anything about them and some of the CDs got barcodes on the silver track side...

    Where do you guys get your labels and how much do they cost? I wanna buy a really huge pack or something but all I've ever seen is some sort of kit with 10 labels bundled with some lame ass software which is totally stupid. Anyway I asked at this local computer store and they said they carry them but they're sold out. Would a stationary store like Office Depot or Grand & Toy have this kind of thing?

    If you are in the US you're lucky. Neato often has offers online where with the 100 labels you buy you get 100 CD-R's free with it as well. (take a look at http://www.neato.com)

    Otherwise this brand is fairly available in PC Shops, PC World(UK), Time (UK), Kaufhof (D), Vobis (D)

  7. I used CDR with Neato mat whitelabel in my car. quite a few of them pop up and wrinkle after a while, and cause the player problem. I may have to switch to Gloss, or other brand.

    What? Those labels cost more than I pay for CDs? How does that figure? Thanks for the tip. I'm Canadian so I'll look around to see what I can find.

    I wuoldn't advise you using and labled cd-r's in the car. I usually make backup copies of my audio cd's and just write on them. The temparatures in a car (especially now during summer) can be very very high and damage the cd-r as it is - let alone the label.

    this makes a lot of sense, especially if you live where it gets really hot!! think about it, the adhesive from those labels exposed to hour after hour of extreme heat will, after awhile, soften and could wreak havoc in your player.

    *lives where it's really cold*

  13. they get hot even when it's cold because the stereo is usually fairly close to the heating ducts and or heater core. plus the more powerful the amp in the stereo is, the more heat it generates internally.

  14. Yes, that is well known.
    A lot of my friends use marker pen on CDR.

    A small transparent and light sticker may work.
    A heavy one will cause the CD player go nut because it upset the balance of the disc/player.

    yeah but, do you want to risk damage to your auto's CD player? as stated before, the ones you can write on with a marker are probably the way to go in your mobile unit...
