    If you mean anything adhesive rather than printing (or writing) directly
    onto the disc, AIUI, no you should not.

    No - who knows? Why risk it. Write on the centre part and label the box.

    I used to but my latest Sony (front loading DVD) says not to use disks with
    any sort of label on, so now just write on them with a CD pen.

    I've heard (several times and in several places) that you shouldn't put
    labels on DVDs. I do so (often) and have had no problems using cheapo
    Datawrite and Princo DVD-Rs and Panasonic DVD-RAMs using matte labels.

    To be fair, despite my earlier post, I have used DVDs with labels on in the
    DVD player (ever tried getting some of those damned things off!!!) but I
    guess there's more potential for snagging with the front loaders so
    companies cover themselves.

    They might be more worried about labels that aren't on straight causing
    an off centre mass and subsequent vibration when the disk is spun.

    I imagine that most people use centring spindles like CD Stomper, as I
    do.

    My local video rental store does this - with rectangular labels approx
    1cm x 5cm.

    They generate a horrendous amount of vibration when used in a DVD-ROM
    drive, which results in a very annoying buzzing noise!

    It's not quite so noticeable in a standalone DVD player - presumably
    because of the much lower speed.
