Re: Best way to store all these downloads?

I also use spindles. And if you take care as AAR.oner said you´re on the safe side. You might have found this sort of ring on the downside of a cd. It takes the surfaces apart. So unless there´s no dirt in between - no problem, as said.

Re: Best way to store all these downloads?

here's an option...saw this in the new mailer, i usually don't like supporting musician's fiend, but this looks like is a good deal...says it holds a hundred jewel cases, so maybe 150+ in paper sleeves? only 40 bucks, so...

Is that a tiny plastic ring you're talking about or the fake plastic disc that is included?

I use spools, there must be a better way but it helps to conserve space.

sharpies are safe for writing on cdr/dvdr media I just write all over those things. maybe one day I'll live to regret it, but everything has been good for years now.

I believe he's talking about the little "bump" that is actually part of the CD. I think he means that it'll keep the CD surfaces somewhat seperated. I agree, but I still don't advise spinning or otherwise moving the CDs too much. I plan on moving mine from their jewels back to the spindles sometime soon, to save space.

I use Sharpies too, but it makes sense that the solvents in the ink "may" screw with the ink layer on the CD, although I think it would be unlikely since the CD has a plastic coating over the ink layer. I never gave it much thought, but it can't hurt to be safe. I only write numbers on them anyway and they're only for archiving purposes. I have everything backed up on HDs too.

Nah, i had originally made the suggestion that when labeling your archive disc, that you should only write on the inner part of the disc, which has no "data layer" to write to...

re: writing on the disc with sharpies...i think it really depends on *quality* of media...also if its an ink-jet printable disc its fine to write on with a sharpie [i should have stated that earlier]...Some silvers will have problems later on if you write on em, atleast it happened to me a few times

and why do they always include those stupid little platic rings anyway? absolutely useless

Re: Best way to store all these downloads?

you can take it or leave it, this is from the Sharpie homepage faq:

Is the SHARPIE marker safe for writing on CD's?
Sanford has used SHARPIE markers on CDs for years and we have never experienced a problem. We do not believe that the SHARPIE ink can affect these CDs, however we have not performed any long-term laboratory testing to verify this. We have spoken to many major CD manufacturers about this issue. They use the SHARPIE markers on CDs internally as well, and do not believe that the SHARPIE ink will cause any harm to their products.

yep.
And storing in spindles could somewhat give you pain if you´d rather listen to the music than just archive.
