I use to do this.  when my burner would run at 8X(the fastest consistent burn 
speed) Id end up burning around 10-12 discs an hour.  However, that presumes 
I'm near my system, which sadly is no longer the case.

I use some software for windows and a "stamper" thingy label tool which works 
pretty well as long as I label the right side.  Printing out labels is pretty 
easy to do, and if I had stock, I could run off as many as needed.  

From looking at other threads, this appears no longer to be needed, that true?  
otherwise, let me know, and I'll run off as many labels as you need/I can get 
stock for.
