    Don't know if this topic have been already answered in the past, but as news on subject of reliability are increasing, I think it's worth to ask.
    Can you give an advice on marking DVDRs with a marker pen? Pens are similar, or are some better than others (marketing blurb excluded)? And labeling with CD/DVD labels (printed or not), is that good? The two methods can affect the DVD reliability (short/long term)?
    Thank you.

    Yes, labels are asking for trouble. Unless correctly centred they can unbalance the disc and lead to playback problems. As pointed out above, if they peel off inside a hot DVDR then it'll be a disaster.

    Good quality discs with printable surfaces are excellent, if you get a good printer such as the Epson R200.

    Marker pens are the way to go if you do lots of recording: again, as above, choose the ones designed for CDs or else they might rot the polycarbonate.
