The "small print" in the specs for the CW-50 advises you to print on
them before you burn the CD!  Presumably, this is because the thermal
action might affect the recording.

Subject: [ARSCLIST] Opinions: Casio CW-50 family of thermal transfer CD
label printers???

I'm looking for something to avoid writing a few lines on Mitsui Gold
discs--preferably not having to buy special discs. Preferably something
that doesn't smudge if your hands are sweaty. Artwork isn't an issue.
Price is.

Anyone use the Casio CW-50 (or it's two bigger brothers that are
essentially the same)?

Anyone have any thoughts on the archival nature of the thermal transfer
