How do you print ONTO a CD on a Canon MX700 ?

I have a Canon MX700, and I want to be able to print labels straight onto CDs/DVDs.

I have the right kind of CDs & DVDs, I just can't work out how to send it through the printer. I bought this thing on the understanding that it COULD actually do this.

Can anyone give me some suggestinos ?

You need a cd bender -- this is a device that is sold at better computer stores. It heats the CD/DVD to the proper temperature to bend through the printer. After the cd is printed you have to put it in the freezer for about two hours -- CD plastic is a special memory plactic that returns to its original shape.

You may have to be persistant when you ask for this -- I find that most sales people are clueless about these devices.

Hope this helps

Printing directly onto CDs


Hello,

I'm afraid that is not possible with the printer. You an do cd/dvd labels but you can't print directly onto a cd.

You would need a CD/DVD burner with a Light Scribe capability. You also need special CD/DVD's to use Light Scribe.

Thanks for using Fixya.

PS. Just for additional info, here is a link to support for your printer:

I have pixma mx300 Can I print CD labels? Thanks Bryan Will my Cannon Pixma MX300 print Cd Labels.For standard printing the paper is fed from the back.


You can print adhesive sheet labels (such as avery 5931/8931) with no problems. Some canon printers will also print directly on CDs; check this website: http://damnprinter.com/. They have lists of printers that will work and pretty good instructions. I didn't see the MP300 listed. I managed to get a canon 6600D printer to print directly onto CDs, but I had to buy a tray (ebay-$12.00) and it took about an hour to convince it to do the job. The website says to follow the steps "several" times if necessary; it took a while.

My hp photosmart c5580 won't print the correct ink color on dvds


Unless a printer is specifically designed to PRINT on CDs or DVDS, that's the problem. Usually a program called "LightScribe" is used to print on CDs or DVDs right in your DVD/CD Drive. For printers, use a Self Adhesive DVD/CD PAPER Label(s) that you can buy in the store. Inserting DVDs or CDs through a printer can really mess them up and Damage the rollers inside!
