CD Labeling Question

by John Lucifer Jones / April 8, 2004 3:23 AM PDT

I burn audio and data CD-Rs and hand-write labels for them using permanent markers. Does anyone know if, once dry, there is anything in the marker ink that might damage CD-R discs if they are stored simply by being stacked one atop the other, without individual cases? THX JLJ

The answer is Yes and No.

Some markers can cause harm. They usually have a very strong chemical smell when you remove the cap.

The Sharpie brand seems to work OK.
I would suggest using the "Ultra Fine Point" as it puts less ink on the disk.
Sharpie brand is available at office supply stores.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
