I have searched the web and these forums and found no complaints about the Epson R1800 banding when printing on DVD.
I am printing on Taiyo Yuden white face DVD media using Epson Print CDand the banding is terrible. So far I have upgraded the print driver to the latest version and tryied various density settings all to no avail. I have even tried different background images that came with the software. The banding is even worse in the dark areas especially black. Thinking I had clogged nozzles I plopped in some premium glossy and it came out beautiful.
I am beginning to thinkmy printer is flawed in the CD/DVD area. If anyone has any suggestions as what to try next please let me know.
