Those systems are great for mass reading CDs too. I'd love to have one for my trips to the used music store.
For mass reading, is there an easy way to drop a stack of CDs into one of these and have rip/tag them automatically? This seems like a godsend for a friend of mine who is trying to rip ~5K CD's.

I have used a Sharpie for years with no problems.

I'm another in the Sharpie-for-years crowd. I have some more than ten years old now. (Yes, we were doing CD burning in '97. The discs might have been better, though.)

I've also got discs more than five years old with the labels. I use the "CD Stomper" when I care enough to try and make it look nice.

I have resisted a multimedia printer for a long time.

Yup. I've used Sharpie for years and years without a single problem.

I use either a CD marker (a pack of 3 for a couple of bucks) otherwise a pencil works fine. I've still got CDs that I made in the mid to late 90s labelled with pencil and they still work fine.




This thread reminds me of that story about NASA spending millions of dollars on a pen that works in space.

Very very small sidetrack. The way this story is usually told is deceptive. Fisher spent $1M developing the pen, but they did it independent of NASA. Source.

Another small sidetrack, that's not necessarily a large amount of money to spend on design. The original Microsoft Mouse (not the laser model) spent $1M in R&D to get the ergonomics just right. That doesn't include tooling costs and such either, which are probably rolled into the fisher pen R&D costs.

Sharpie here as well for years with no problems.
I'm pretty sure the problems are what someone stated, that the media degraded over time due to many things (improper storage, heat, moisture, light, BAD MEDIA)... what brand media are they?

I recently discovered old discs of mine didn't read properly anymore, and from now on I only trust good-quality media and proper storage.

$1M in 1965 would be be the equivalent of about $5M today, depending on your inflation rate. That would buy a lot of pencils.

Sorry, I'll stop the distraction - back to the OT

you can try this cd dvd label maker, if you need to quickly design a CD label, DVD cover, or box insert.
