I don't know if you really _*need*_ to label your CD-Rs. It's not advisable
to use labels as you can't center them onto the CD (even with an
appropriate tool!) which will move the centre of gravity out of the middle
of the hole for the CD drive axis (for a car tyre the maximum allowed
excentricity is about 0.1mm (0.004")! ). The resulting radial forces will
damage the bearings of the drive. Besides, the vibrations will decrease
data throughput (and in the ___worst____ case the CD-R will break and the
pieces might be thrusted out of the drive - through the closed tray. I
think this will only happen with low quality CDs).
