So I finally built my own dvd tray for my pixma ip3000. But I have noticed that the print quality on dvds is extremely dull and light, compared to ANY paper. So I tried tricking the printer by choosing "Glossy Photo Paper" instead of "CD Media" or whatever it is. And it looked amazingly better! I was printing from CD-LabelPrint. But now it wont do it a second time...
Does anyone know a way to simply change the CD print setting to match the quality setting of "glossy photo paper?"
I can't understand why the dvds would be set to such a poor saturation....

it has to do with the surface, glossy paper's surface is better suited for photo type images. If you look around you can find printable cd/dvd media with high resolution surface. Or so I've heard. A big part will be what media you use, the Memorex printable CD's I buy at Best Buy give pretty good results on my Epson r200. These Prodisc's I bought online, look a little weaker printed.

I'd love to see an indepth review of different printable media, and different techniques to get the best results.
