Printing Cd Labels Directly To Discs

Question

There have been several posts complaining that Roxio Label Creator will not print directly to discs with any printer other than Epson. While this may not be a problem in the USA it is definitely a major limitation in Europe where many printers can print on discs.

 

Printing to discs on Canon and other printers can be achieved by creating a "Page Template" for the required printer. I have made a template for a Canon iP6700D which works just like the included ones for the Epson printers.

 

The templates are stored in C:\Program Files\Common Files\Roxio Shared\11.0\Label Creator 11\Page Files as .jwp files which can be edited with Notepad. Copy an Epson template similar to the one required and edit.

 

Change only the following:-

 

The Name is the name by which the Page Template will appear in Label Creator print diaglogue (eg Canon iP6700D)

 

The Paper Height and Width are simply the dimensions (in cm.) of the CD Tray. (23.8 and 13.1 for the Canon Tray C)

 

The Offset values are the horizontal and vertical dimensions from the back (top) and side of the CD tray, respectively, again in cm. (6.43 and 14.48 for Tray C)

 

The Inner and Outer Radius are the radii of the inner and outer edges of the maximum printable disc surface, in cm. (1.05 and 5.09 for Tray C)

 

Save the page template in the above folder with a suitable file name to identify the printer. (eg Canon iP6700D)

 

Some trial & error may be neccessary to refine the Offset position of the label on the tray. Develop by printing to paper before trying on a disc.

 

:D
