Both are correct. But if you want the maximum lifespan of this media, all you need to know is in this PDF.
Just purchased an HP DC4800 DVD recorder. Works great(although the software and instructions are marginal)and I'm having a lot of fun with it. The HP instructions specifically indicate one must use a Magic Marker to label the discs, no labels. However, Memorex (and others) clearly state their stick-on labels can be used for CDs and DVDs. Has anyone got any experience with labels on DVDs?
Appreciate any help you can provide.
