I want to print CD labels, what software and extra equipment will I need


You can print on labels without special software, or you can use software from the label company. There are label applicators that help center the label, but you can do that yourself if you are careful.

Or, you can get a printer, like the Epson photo 200 series that will print directly onto a CD, and comes with all the hardware and software.

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 want to print a label onto a DVD I am burning using my HP6180 All-in-one printer. Does anyone know how i can do it?


Your printer is not printing straight to a DVD, so you will have to buy self adhesive labels, print on them and then stick the label on the disc. Now, it all depends on what software you have available. Your might have software included with the Photosmart printer for CD/DVD label printing, check your installer CD that came with the printer. If you don't, and use Nero for burning DVDs, you may notice it has a label printing software that comes with it. You will need this type of software in order to print a label. If you don't have Nero, or any other label printing software you can try using some of the free ones that are out there, like Disketch 2.11. There's also a lot of free to try label printing software, like Acoustica CD DVD Label Maker which you can use for 15 days for free. If you have Photoshop and you're good using it, then this is another option to consider (you can download templates online).

Using a label printing software is pretty easy, most of them will have templates that you can open and just edit, or you can start with a blank design and add text and pictures to it. When you are finnished put the special label paper in the printer and click print. If you have special DVD labels make sure you specify that in the printing preferences before you print.

You need to download a CD cover creator software. If you also want to print your own CD label stickers (round ones for the disk) you will need also to buy CD avery templates.

Re: DVD labels won't print on my Epson R265


Hello guys.

About the problems printing CD/DVD with your Epson R265 ....................

There is nothing to do. The prg coming with the printer (PrintCD) is wrong at all and we cannot understand why the Epson Corp. has simply deleted the prg by its download site.

After tryng for a lot of solutions ........ INCREDIBLE but TRUE ..... the program Print CD coming with the previous Epson R200 is ok at 100% !

So, in conclusion, all prgs inserted onto the Epson R265 CD are OK eccept the Print CD. Don't install it from the R265 disk ! It will crash !

If already installed, delete it and install the prg Epson R200 print CD.
It will work fine and without troubles.

Repeat ... it's incredible, but true.

The prg can be downloaded searching for Epson R200 software.
If you will have troubles, let me know.

Is there any way I can burn an image onto a printable cd/dvd using a burner either through my printer or directly from the burner?


Hello,

1) buy a printer with cd/dvd print tray - like canon 4500, it prints on printable dvd only (printable dvd's have a special white coat to absorb the ink).

2) buy a dvd burner that supports lightscribe like asus drw-1814bl (it prints black only on special coated "lightscribe dvd's"

3) NOT RECOMENDED but also possible, buy cd/dvd labels print on any printer and adhere to cd/dvd, usually over time the glue will destroy cd's and trapped air will make bubbles when the cd/dvd is hot (air expands in hot environment).
