I cannot translate your last sentence. Are the "they" Verbatim or the

The Verbatim "Look like 45s printed information". I have not seen these up
close and I did not go to the store to look at these, but the information
printed on the recordable CDs...that makes it resemble a 45rpm...will that
be something (music or artist) other than what is/will actually be
recorded/burned on the disc by the individual buying these...and if so,
won't that create confusion for the bin hunters/collectors later on?
This is a blank CD so the size is about two-thirds that of a "45". The
appearance of the top is of the CD center hole surrounded by an annulus in
a bright color. That ring is surrounded by the outer black ring with a
"groove" printed on it. When finished, it will look like a shrunken 45 with
an oversize center hole and a handwritten "label". It resembles a 45 as a
bagel resembles a donut.
No one seems to be confused by the superficially identical DVD and CD;
what's the problem here? One cannot see that a rigid disc less than 5"
across in a jewel case is different from a flexible 7" in a sleeve?
