    Since I got my new Panasonic DMR-E30 DVD Recorder I have been busy in my spare time making copies of home videos. I have always put labels on my CDs with no playback problems. I read the Panasonic owners manual and it states that no labels should be placed on DVDs. By the time I read this I already had several DVD copies made and they play fine with labels. Is this just a precautionary statement by Panasonic or is this a big DVD no no?
    Thanks

    You mean the round labels that completely cover the front? Generally they are OK. Random stickers, on the other hand, are bad because they throw off the disc's balance when it is spinning.

    TyC,
    Yes, I was talking about the round labels that cover the entire side.
    Thanks

    You can also buy hub labels (used for two-sided discs). Avery now has a template for them.

    Thanks for those links... surprisingly, they're not too expensive.
