CD-R label ?

Postby SkaarjMaster on Sat Sep 01, 2012 10:10 pm

Is it normal to be able to see the permanent black marker (sharpie) through to the recorded side of a CD-R when you hold it up to a light?:strange: Just wondering if this might be the reason the CD-R has gone bad so quick. Thank you.

They can be see through. Hell, I can see through some of the cheap brands.

I'm going to start making sunglasses out of old, crappy CD-R discs.
