Thread: Will Permanant Marker Affect Cd?

  1. #1
    I have been burning cd's for quite some time now and have been labeling them with black permanant marker- Will this affect the cd in the long run? Can it damage the data? I am marking them on top- Please let me know if this can be problematic down the road-Thanks

    In short, yes - there are chemicals in perminent marker that can cause damage to the data parts of your cd. Its best to use the special stick-on labels or the special cd marking pens that are available from most good retailers. :-)

    well, i don't think the permanent marker would affect the top of the cd, the information is on the bottom.

    I hope to god this is not the case, because i have over 500 cds marked in black permanant marker. I have not had a problem yet (knock on wood) but time tells another story.

    Do you have any documentational evidence of your reply mrcrosby, a weblink etc?
    Its just that StrongislanD and I really would like to know either way for sure.
    I do not disbelieve you, its just that we need definite answers because there are cds at stake.

    Of course it depends on exactly the chemical that would affect it - I used to mark my CDs with markers but found problems after time.
