So your omniscience implant is out of order again? Some DVDs do indeed
have program recorded on both sides. That small inner ring is the only
area safe for (very tiny) writing.

> Forgive my ignorance on this simple matter but believe it or not, we just received our first few DVDs for our collection. We wanted to write a call number on them with a "sharpie". I was under the impression that only one side had info on it - and that the side with the logos and written info -we could write on. However, I see one that has no writing at all on either side and it appears that the "full screen" version is on one side and the "wide screen" version is on the other. Is this true? Also, I think that you can write the call number on the very inner circle on either side ... but I am not sure about any of this so... please help. Thank you.
