let me take for example, this:

http://www.amazon.in/Luxor-Marker-Pens-Assorted-Colours/dp/B00LHZTPQM

though this is marketed as "can be used on CDs/DVDs/BDs", is it really compatible in the long run? i am asking this because, there has been widespread awareness like this:

https://www.tapeonline.com/using-permanent-ink-markers-on-cds-dvds

that say that the ink will damage the data layer in the long run, if not now. is this true? expert advice would be much appreciated. thanks in advance.

Obviously nobody has any special knowledge on this subject, but having read the article you referenced I think it possibly overstates the concern. It is full of 'may', 'can' and 'maybe'.

 

If it is any help I have just checked two of the oldest discs I could lay my hands on. The first, with the contents printed directly onto the surface with an inkjet printer, is dated 2003 and is still perfectly functional. The second, labelled with a felt tip marker for some reason, is also legible and dated 2008. These were both DVD data back-up discs. So, for a ten year period there does not seem to be a problem. For a 100 year period . . . ?

I am going to be away until about the 22nd October. Time on-line will be reduced and my internet access may be limited. PMs may not be replied to as quickly as normal !
