Are CD and DVD labels the same?

Nothing at all. Well, technically, if your label is on a CD, it’s a CD label, and if it’s on a DVD, it’s a DVD label. But until you take them off the label sheet and put them on discs, they’re interchangeable.

How do you remove labels from a DVD?

Wipe the cotton ball or cotton swab over the adhesive label you wish to remove. Wipe gently from the inside of the disk toward the outer edge to avoid damaging the CD. The rubbing alcohol should help to break down the label and sticky residue.

Can you write on the top of a DVD?

Yes, you can use an off-the-shelf permanent marker, but be careful where you write. The easiest way to label a CD-R is to whip out that permanent marker and write directly on the disc. It’s also a great way to assure that the disc won’t be readable later on.

How do I write on a disc?

Can you put sticky labels on CDs?

A paper sticky label adds uneven weight to a disc, causing an imbalance, thereby causing excess wobble, and thus creating read/write problems with labeled discs.

What size is the hole in the middle of a CD?

By far, the most common is 120 millimetres (4.7 in) in diameter, with a 74- or 80-minute audio capacity and a 650 or 700 MB (737,280,000-byte) data capacity. Discs are 1.2 millimetres (0.047 in) thick, with a 15 millimetres (0.59 in) center hole.

How do you make a clear disk?

I wanted to try making a clear CD. So, I got some packing tape, scratched the top of the CD with scissors, and used the packing tape to peel off the silver part. Just line up the tape with the edge of the scratch, and the silver part should come right off. Repeat this until all of the silver part is off of the CD.
