    I'm in the process of creating some custom labels for my home made DVD R's, but a question. Is there any data for the disc contained in that clear plastic circle in the middle? Top Side of course..not on the writeable side.

    The program that I have cuts out the middle section on the peice of sticky paper that the label is printed on, and I'm wondering if there's a reason for that..

    Now I can enter the world of custom covers. It'll be interesting to see if I can come up with any good ideas [​IMG].

    Thanks [​IMG].

    If it's clear, there is no data. You can label the hub section. Data side as well as label side.

    There are often human readable numbers there that mean nothing to the consumer, and there are side a/b labels there on double-sided discs.

    1. no
    2. that's the place where the disc sits on the spindle motor and where the clamper sits on. Some of these clampers are magnetic. Adding an additional layer may minimize the magnetic field which makes the disc not clamped properly which may result in tiny slippages during spinning.
