Protect your discs

Most problems with CD-ROM, CD-R, and CD-RW discs are caused by careless handling and storage. The best way to prevent problems is to maintain your media properly in the first place. For example, always keep your discs in those plastic jewel cases. Even when you buy media in bulk, make sure that any written discs have a jewel case handy–leaving discs out in the open is an invitation to dust, scratches, cracks, and so on. Also remember that the top of the disc (the “label” side) is far more sensitive than the bottom (the “reading” side), so avoid the use of ballpoint pens, and use only quick-drying inks.
