    That's your problem right there. If it works without the label and won't work with the label, it's pretty self-explanatory. Stick on labels cause nothing but problems. If you simply must have a label then invest in an inkjet that prints directly to disc.

    It's absolutely fine to use a sharpie or other marker on them. Thankfully I got through my sticky-label phase before I bought my first DVD burner :)

    The best deal going is Ritek G04 media. Try rima.com, newegg.com or supermediastore.com for them.

    Ritek, Taiyo Yuden and Verbatim are the best.
