    I've heard people have been having trouble with PS2 DVD Labels. Has anyone been able to get these to work? How? What programs should I use? What types of labels should I buy? What sites should I get my labels? Thanks...

    as in sticky labels? dont use those... they ruin the games or any thing that you put them on... the spin of the ps2 or the dvd makes the disk heat up... now when nothing is on the disk it will cool off and stil play.... but when you use them lables THEY heat up WITH the disk... and this will not allow it to cool off... and the movie or game or whatever will skip and eventualy stop.. you better get a printer for disks... it's much better and it prints on the cd or dvd and you dont glue anything to it...

    Don't do it mate, unless you're prepared to spend a lot of time peeling them off, pain in the ass.

    Also, if you put the DVD Label Stickers the wrong way [not perfect circle - like it does not cover the whole disc], your PS2 or DVD will not be able to read them [since the sticker is not balanced].

    Better off with Sharpie =)

    The problem isn't usually immediate, more 'down the line'.

    It also traps in moisture which helps to degrade the information burned onto the disk.

    Is there a cd printer about that prints a whole image onto a cd in full colour?

    The tdk one I have loked at only prints one colour at a time.

    You have to buy printable disks as well as a printer that will handle CD/DVD's. Do an engine search on like Bizrate/nextag/pricegrapper etc... you should be able to get a list of printers that can handle the disks. They can be a bit pricy though. THe printable disks aren't too bad though about .10 to .20 more than non printable.

    How long down the line? I've been labeling backups for a while now and so far no problems.

    at max about 3 months... some of them hold even more like 6 months... and then they brake down or dont play no more... if it stop playing just peal it off and it will play.... if you cant peal them off just put it in some warm water for 5 mins and then peal... and wash it off... then it will play like new... if you plan to use them use by all means!! but remember... we warened you...

    I thought submerging discs in water ruins the discs?
