You must only write with soft water or alcohol based markers, like
Sharpies. But be sure you have not marked other item that would have
grit on them. the marker tip might pick some up. Then you are taking
your chances. The possibility exists that the marker pigment might
contain something that could corrode the Cd finis as well. Something
to thing about when choosing markers...
