    best thing to do is not to use papersticky labels, they
    will make your disks out of balance...........so that
    you have problems such as the problem you are having now.........


    use a Sharpie Fine Tip Marker your problems in playback may
    disappear...................

    you can try fingernail polish remover, its pretty strong
    stuff.......................

    gday to you..........................

    Yeah, strong enough to dissolve the DVD. I would use something milder like Isopropyl Alcohol.

    To title my dvds I use a Casio thermal disc printer model CW-75
    Frist I thermal print my disc then burn, no probs. BTW don't use nail polish remover, just melts the discs, and make new back ups as suggested (save your sorrows)
