Do you you think that everything that is printed on today, is stopped?
What's the difference if the media is moving or the print head is moving? You have to know the position of the media to within wave-lengths of light to write to the DVD. The ink printhead can be off orders of magnitude from that precision and make great labels.dolphinius_rex wrote:Maybe not stopped, but NOT spinning
While I agree it would be difficult, certainly not impossible. Ideally one would use existing white ink jet media. But, That doesn't have to be a given. Look at HP and LightScribe, they used the existing laser but have invented a whole new class of media, complete with royalities.cfitz wrote:Seriously, you wouldn't be able to print at the same time you burn, because the disc is spinning too fast when burning (see above picture for likely result). So you would still have a two-step process and wouldn't save any appreciable time. Next, add in the extra space required (one extra drive bay used up), the extra expense required, and the limited utility (it only prints on DVDs unless you figure out a way to crumple up your term paper and jam it into the drive door). Finally, consider the wisdom of mixing opaque inks into the same compartment as an optical drive, and it all points to the idea being simply impractical.

No problem there. except Epson has a lock in the US, not in Europe where Canon also offers printing on CD's.cfitz wrote:Personally, I would prefer that my regular printer combine a DVD/CD printing function with its normal paper printing function than my DVD/CD burner combine a DVC/CD printing function with its normal burning function.
Isn't that a function of the number of post and not user selectable?Check the tag line above my avatar.

If any of you know a model, could you let me know it?
That is exactly correct, only Epson offers a CD printer in the US. Not Canon, HP, Lexmark, etc. You can buy professional burner - printer combos, ~$1000.dodecahedron wrote:what, the Canon printers don't sell in the US ???
