TY printable media and epson printer looks tons better

ohh and you can do color cd/dvd prints too

To print directly on the label side of a CD (even if it is only greyscale)! I'm guessing no printer can do that, no matter how lovely its output looks.

Thanx for the heads up on Epson, tho'.

What's TY?

Taiyo Yuden. Good media if it's genuine.

If you live outside of North America, you have even more and better choices. The newer Canon printers (e.g. Pixma iP3000, iP4000 as well as last year's i865 which I have) all print to discs as well. My i865 does a super job.:D These printers aren't available in N.A. because Epson apparently holds a patent that effectively locks out the competition. :evil:

There's a couple of very long threads devoted to this at steve's digicams and CDFreaks and probably other sites as well.

From what I've read, activating the CD-printing is neither simple to do nor easy to use. Of course, my incentive for something like this is rather lacking. :wink:

Oh and apparently the patent is held by Philips, not Epson- Canon USA chose not to liscense the technology.
