I find that using the front cover art from Amazon and pasting it onto a cover or manipulating the front cover with PhotoShop and taking elements from it, you can make much nicer disc art than most of what you'll get at cdcovers.cc.

You should also try DVD Empire:

They provide full size front and back covers.

They're very low rez. The only front and rear jackets worth looking at are at DVDCoverArt.com.

IS IT OK TO PUT LABELS ON DVD'S?
I READ ON THE WEB THAT THE GLUE MIGHT MELT AND DAMAGE THE PLAYER SINCE DVD'S PLAY(BURN) AT A HIGHER TEMP THAN CD'S.

Started using labels in the begining,but have since stopped this as I feel they play better without.Some would stop and start and noticed more pixelation with them.To me it just was not that important any longer,have been using just a Sharpie for it.You may not have a problem with them,at least now.But what happens if the present player dies and then you have problems with the new one

The same arguments are made against labels for CDs as DVDs, however, the data layer in a DVD is enclosed in two layers of plastic (unlike CDs)protecting it from a wayward label and also allowing the safe removal of labels, albeit with a lot of elbow grease. My opinion is if you use very good labels, carefully apply them and make sure there are no air gaps, you're probably okay.

i agree with nikicap.
every one of my backups (40+) and all of my cd's
(300+) have labels and not ONE problem ever. some of the cd's are several years old and stay in my truck in soft case in the fla. heat! may i make a recommendation though....use only the STOMPER PRO! nothing else. the installer is well built and puts the labels on perfectly!!!

A week ago I would have said the same thing about labels. I have been applying them to everything and had no problems at all.

That was a week ago. I just got an RCA tv with built in DVD player for our kitchen. The DVD's with labels do NOT play well at all. A lot of pixelization, skips, etc. Same disk plays fine in my other players. Burned a new disk and tried it without the label. Played perfectly on the RCA. I then put on a label and all the problems were back.

My advice at this point is to apply a label or two and try them. If they play ok go ahead with labeling (but don't buy a new tv/player!!!!).

Probably has a lot to do with the stabilization aspect of the player.
