The stack of Sony CDRs I have here (which is not my normal media brand) state, "You can write on the label side of this disc with an oil-based

Either way, I basically do what jcrab66 does, write on ones for my use, and don't for trades or backups. The "permanent marker" qualities of a Sharpie just make me leery, I would think they add something to the pen dye so that it penetrates surfaces more.
Good to see you again, Five!
Sharpies do not actually penetrate into the plastic. The ink is designed to adhere to a surface very tightly. Acetone, laquer thinner and any number of other solvents will break it down and remove it from most surfacers. NOT SUGGESTING YOU TRY ANY OF THEM WITH A CD-R
. These solvents powerful enough to remove a sharpie mark will likely do the damage that sharpies are rumored to cause.
