Ross Campbell Tech: CD labels peeling off (18) RE: Tech: CD labels peeling off 05 Mar 17

Never had any returns of the paper-labelled CD-Rs that I used to produce for our projects, but I became aware of the potential jamming problems which possibly began with the spread of slot-loading CD/DVD players. In future I plan to sort out my CD-capable printer and avoid paper labels completely. Anyone willing to risk them is welcome to have my remaining stock!

Another problem I became aware of is the very short life of standard CD-Rs. Experts recommended Taiyo Yuden products, but they are no longer manufactured in Japan. They were succeeded first by JVC, and now by CMC who reckon to be using the same technology. Whether they maintain the TY reputation remains to be seen. I have sourced some reasonably-priced printable CD-Rs from Amazon (buy via Mudcat!) with promised archive-life of 100 years(!) but will reserve my judgement until I have used a few.
