    For sure this is a lot better thantrying to write the contents on the disk itself and this is a fine low tech wayto deal with the problem. I haven't ever written an Instructable before and I'mnot sure my method of resolving this problem would be very helpful for anyoneelse but here goes the gist of what I have done.I have a stack of 8 CD carousels that hold a total of 700 optical media disks.I have long ago abandoned this media as I find disk drives larger, faster andmore easily accessible.

Theadvantage for me though is that it is computer searchable so that I won’t haveto read 700 pieces of paper in order to find what I am looking for. I realize,of course that my problem isn’t the same problem that most people areconfronted with. Thanks for sharing your Instructable Roshan.
