    It's fine, though unless you have some whitetops you'll need a sharpie.

    Bacana, you mean felt tip pen, right? No ballpoints. Ever look at the next sheet of paper in a pad after you've written in it? Notice the outline of your writing? What do you think happens with the thin layers between the plastic of a DVD?

    Make sure they are oil base. Some felt markers can eat through to the data layer making it a coaster.
