You need the printable blank cd's, they have a paper blank label so that the ink goes in and dries properly. The ink doesn't dry on a lightscribe cd, and even dry, it will wipe off.

Ink won't dry on lightscribe


You need special absorbent coating on the printable DVD's if they are suitable for that. Are you sure you can print on the sort you have usually they are all white. It also must actually say suitable for PC printed labels etc too.

Epson Stylus R220 CD Print Smears after printing.


It has to be a bad batch or the wrong system.
Are you sure that the disks are labeled inkjet printable and not lightscribe?
Most printables are white in color and lightscribes are tannish.
