    Easy.. dont put label on the disk,use a soft tip pen, It can make your disk off balance,, Search in this forum and you will find some solution

    thebigbos is 100% correct, stick on lables can do horrible things to your player, like coming off and staying inside, and just making your dvd skip. If you want to get professional, you can get a Epson R200 or R300 printer and printable discs that would make great labels WITHOUT the harm - BUT they do use alot of ink. But I am the cheapy girl, I love my Sharpie! and yes they do come in colors

    Never, ever, ever use labels. If you read the posts on labels you will find nightmare stories about former label users. Labels will come off, fray, jam or otherwise FUBAR any disc or player they interact with, if not right now, then eventually. Use a Sharpie, or bite the bullet and buy a printer and printable discs if you want to have a nice pretty picture on the DVD.

    Hi, I've had problems with labels too and what I decided to do was just to make labels for the jewel cases instead. I don't write or place labels on cds or dvds anymore and haven't had any more problems Good luck.

    I've not had a problem with them in DVD players or CD players with trays personally. But do not use them for CD's in your car! They skip and do all sorts of strange things especially when they get hot, I actually had one come off which was a horrible experience inside my nice new Pioneer Headset. Luckily I managed to get the blighter out eventually.

    I've got an R200 now which is quality but am still trying to use the labels and old blank DVD's up before I get printables (except in the car!!)
