Select the print dvd/cd cover application, when it opens it shows the outline of the label
Select 'text' and type your text, then adapt it by font, style, size and positioning.
Can preview on the label and drag it around like a text box in MS Word
For images, select 'insert' from the menu on the screen, browse to your phots and select one, then accept it and preview/resize on the label shown on the screen
Then select 'print'
Get your cd hol;der ready, open the front of the printer, then open the flap with 'Canon' on it
Wait foir screen prompt to insert the holder, with the cd upwards facing and at the end nearest the printer
When prompted, insert it so the 'arrows' on the left and right are flush with the front edge of the flap you just folded down

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.

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


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

Problem fixed after hours of inverstigation on my behalf. Very annoyed that Canon want to charge me for an answer to a problem that an instruction manual should explain. The problem may be that I am only a beginner when it comes to computers and the accessories needed but why is there no manual provided with purchase? Far from happy with after sales service/problems.

TLP 2844 skips over labels


The first thing I would do is to default the printer then run a width calibration. The instruction are in the user's manual that should have come with the printer. If the instruction did not come with the printer I can provide the instruction.

Make sure you have the most current drivers from Canon. Go here. It takes a few seconds to load all the files available. Select your operating system, and after a few more seconds, you should see the driver files to download. Follow the instructions to download and install the driver.

Text printing now slightly larger than it used to be


Since the printer is only doing what it is told to do, it is my opionion that the data in the stream that goes to the printer has changed slightly.

Not knowing if you use 3rd party software to produce your labels, or if you manually write your code, take a look at the reference manual for programming if it is the latter and look for the opaque setting for that type and line of text. If you use a 3rd party app, you may need to contact them about the same type of setting.

This opaque type setting should allow the space around your characters to overlap without creating that box effect. Kind of like a gif with a transparent background.

Good luck
