I've used isopropyl alcohol to remove sharpie, but I don't know if this

I know we've discussed this before, but remind me...

What works well to get permanent marker off DVDs?

(In spite of knowing that the property info is supposed to go on the
hub, one of our students was attracted to the bright shiny silver of
2-sided discs and wrote over the movie on a whole set.)
