What is the holdup on CD/DVD carriers with Canon printers? This feature is offered outside the USA, but not here. The Epson R1800 comes with a carrier, so it is not a legal issue. Called Canon, and the representative had no clue.

Do you really want to print on a CD?



Use a label - far better.



I printed onto 2 CDs when I first got my Espson printer and never had any desire to do so again.

Actually, it is a legal issue. My understanding is that Canon is not willing to pay the patent licensing fees to incorporate CD printing into their printers. Epson has.

The CD printing capability is included in the firmware of most of the Canon printers but is disabled in the US. Search the Ink Jet forum for many discussions on this topic, as well as possible work arounds.

labels can and do affect the balance of the disk in high speed drives, not such a good idea these days, they where invented in days of 4x cd drives not 52x and more today.

epson print to disk i think is very good but deepends on the quality of the coating, and if u use full face printable disks,finish it of with a spray of clear lacuer for better life, hardest part i found it the actual calibrating of the disk tray
