I've been using a laundry marker on my CDRs and was wondering if it's safe to use to write on DVDs?  I was looking at the Taiyo and Verbatim and noticed that they offer some blanks with a shiny silver surface.  Is this safe to write on our should I go with the ones that allow inkjet printing on top (white surface)?  Thanks!

I've been using a "Sharpie" for years and years, and I've never experienced any problem.  Some people will say you will, others will say not.  My backups go back for YEARS and there is not a problem with any of them.

Do you use them right on the shiny surface DVD blanks or do you buy the ones with a coating on them that is printable?  Thanks!

I have used them on ALL of the above, coated, shiny surface, and inkjet printable, and have never experienced a problem.
