Oops. I didn't recognize the printer model.
I've seen these but never used them, and do agree they seem pretty nice since they print directly to the disc.
If aviationwiz' tips don't help and you do use a protective spray, I would recommend placing the discs printed side up on a clean, flat, lint-free piece of paper (typing paper might work) and then spray the printed surface. The paper should catch the overspray, keeping it from reaching the data side of the disc. Replace the paper with a new sheet for each disc.
Since you will be applying the coating directly to the disc, I would avoid lacquer based protective sprays if possible. They might dissolve the protective lacquer on the top of the CDs (not a problem with DVDs since DVDs are polycarbonate on both sides) and damage the underlying data layer. Remember from high school chemistry class that like dissolves like.
Aviationwiz, have you actually tried washing your discs, or are you just reporting that you don't get smudges from your fingers?
