make sure that you are heating up the dye. the heat helps the chemical reaction.

may also be the fact that it is a groove. just sayin'.......

There's no reason good Rit shouldn't dye star plastic. It sounds like you've gotten hold of some ND rit but if you're certain that's not the case then give us some more info. How are you mixing the rit, how old is it, approx dye bath temp, how old/sunburnt is the disc you're trying to dye, and anything else you can think of that may be relevant.

i think i got some of the new stuff that does not dye because its not that old and the black rit that i use works fine when i do the same technique
how i put they dye in a heat resistant tin and pour a little cooler than boiling water in and leave the disc in for about 15-25 minuets. and the discs are fairly new the groove is a brand new Xout that has only been used on a course once.
