    Labeler Supports What?

    Thanks. Hopefully someday as it has been a request from users since version 7 Again, I appreciate the info.
  2. Does the labeler program within Creator 2009 finally support printers other than epson for printing directly to disc?
  3. All, I posted how to print directly to discs using your HP printer. Recently I received an e-mail requesting which items ment what in my page files. I thought it was a good question and am posting it here for all. Perhaps you can use it if you have a different model or make of printer. A typical Page file (or one I used when supplying my solution) Red are my comments [Page Description] Height of paper used. 5.125 is for disc /* Printer prefrences = (that line only)*/ I don't know but it's in all the files Name= stringRef:HP-D5160 Not Printing Hub Anything after : Identifies label/paper type in drop box Paper Height = 5.125 Height of paper used. 5.125 is for disc Paper Width = 5.125 Width of paper used. 5.125 is for disc Number of Views = 1 Number of labels (views) on paper ; 1 for print directly to disc Not sure. Can only guess Print Type = 1 Not sure. Can only guess [View Info 1] Settings for view/label number x (1 for print to disc) View Type = Disc Not sure can only guess [Disc Info 1] Identifer for settings Offset = 6.323 6.425 Vertical and Horizontal printing offsets Inner Radius = 2.05 Radius of disc hub (inner circle not printed on) Outer Radius = 5.8 Radius of disc/label itself (printed area) For the vertical/horizontal adjustments based on HP D5100 series printers and standing in front of the printer looking at it): For Vertical: making the number smaller moves the printing down (or toward the front of the printer) and making the number larger moves the printing up (or towards the back of the printer) For Horizontal: making the number smaller moves the printing to the left (or towards the buttons on the printer) and making the number larger moves the printing to the right (or away from the buttons on the printer) To avoid the waste of printable CD/DVD's when adjusting your settings, use labels applied to the clear protective disc found in every spindal pack purchsed. You can also appliy the labels on top of a printable disc minimizing the waste. Another option is to use solid colors in different shages (like yellow, green, red). Starting with the lightest color, you can print on the same label 3-4 times and see the changes to the print position. I hope this helps anyone that might need it. As you can tell I don't really have a lot of knowledge in page files but was willing to experiment. Just be carefull and make backup copies of files before you change them in case you need to restore it. ICC
  4. I did a quick search for CD stomper in google and found products at the cdstomper/avery web site. Here is the link: http://www.cdstomper.com/cds/Main?action=p...archy=CDSTOMPER ICC
  5. To go back to the main point. A work around allowing printing directly to disc for the HP D5160 printer has been posted in the tips and tricks forum. It should work for most HP printers. ICC

    Emc 10 Label Creator

    A work around that enables you to use the print to disc function for HP D5160 printer has been posted in tips and tricks forum. It should work for most HP printers. ICC
  7. A work around has been posted in the Tips and Tricks section for the HP D5160 printer. It will probably work for other HP printers. I expect that a similar procedure (creating page files) will also work for the Cannon printers. ICC
  8. Also, if you click prefrences you will see two items greyed out. clicking the box next to fine tuning enables this function and you can adjust your offsets. ICC
  9. A work around for HP D5160 printer is now available in the tips and tricks forum. It will probably work for you as well. ICC
  10. I previously identified and posted the procedure to print directly to discs using the HP D5160 printer for EMC-7 and 9. Recently I purchased MYDVD10 Premier and like others discovered that once again the HP printers were left out of the label program. After a few days of trial and error I have found a procedure that works. I even uninstalled and reinstalled MYDVD10 premiere to verify the process. I hope it helps everyone here. I suggest that you print this post to make it easier to follow The following procedure will allow you to print directly to disc on the HP Photosmart D-5160 printer using Roxio's label Creator. This procedure was figured out using the label creator provided with MYDVD10 Premier. I expect that it should also work with EMC-10. The procedures were also done on Windows XP, therefore, it should work on Vista but file locations may be different. You will be creating two page files (printing specs for labelor) using Microsoft Wordpad. A: Create First Page File Using Word Pad 1. Open WordPad Depress Start Depress Run Type Wordpad Depress OK (wordpad launches) 2. In Word Pad copy and paste OR Type (exactly) the following: [Page Description] /* Printer prefrences = (that line only)*/ Name= stringRef:HP-D5160 Not Printing Hub Paper Height = 5.125 Paper Width = 5.125 Number of Views = 1 ; 1 for print directly to disc Print Type = 1 [View Info 1] View Type = Disc [Disc Info 1] Offset = 6.323 6.425 Inner Radius = 2.05 Outer Radius = 5.8 3. Save The file to the Desktop In wordpad Depress File Depress Save (Save Screen opens) In Save In Location select Desktop from Dropdown choices In File Name type: HP D5160 In File Type select Rich Text Format (RTF) Depress Save (save screen closes) In Wordpad Depress File Depress Exit 4. Rename Saved File On your desktop locate the file DP 5160.rtf Right Click on the file Select Rename (name highlights) Change the RTF Extension to JWP File name becomes DP 5160.jwp B: Create Second Page File Using Word Pad 1. Open WordPad Depress Start Depress Run Type Wordpad Depress OK (wordpad launches) 2. In Word Pad copy and paste OR Type (exactly) the following: [Page Description] /* Printer prefrences = (that line only)*/ Name= stringRef:HP-D5160 Printing Center Hub Paper Height = 5.125 Paper Width = 5.125 Number of Views = 1 ; 1 for print directly to disc Print Type = 1 [View Info 1] View Type = Disc [Disc Info 1] Offset = 6.323 6.425 Inner Radius = 1.06 Outer Radius = 5.8 3. Save The file to the Desktop In wordpad Depress File Depress Save (Save Screen opens) In Save In Location select Desktop from Dropdown choices In File Name type: HP D5160 Hub In File Type select Rich Text Format (RTF) Depress Save (save screen closes) In Wordpad Depress File Depress Exit 4. Rename Saved File On your desktop locate the file DP 5160 Hub.rtf Right Click on the file Select Rename (name highlights) Change the RTF Extension to JWP File name becomes DP 5160 Hub.jwp C: Move Page Files to Label Creator Page File Folder (procedure for XP Vista may be different) 1. Open My Computer 2. Open Label Creator Page File Folder Usually in C:\Program Files\Roxio\Label Creator 10\Page Files 3. Drag DP 5160.jwp from desktop to Page file folder 4. Drag DP 5160 Hup from desktop to Page File Folder 5. Close Page File Folder Depress red X D: Start Roxio Label Program E: Design Label F: Print Directly to Disc on HP D5160 Printer 1. In Label Creator Depress File 2. Depress Print (Print Window Opens) 3. In Print Window Printer Settings: Select HP Photosmart D5100 Series NOTE: If you have not previously done so, Calibrate your Printer by depressing Calibrate and follow instructions My settings under the calibrate were TOP: IJ Bottom: IJ Left: J Right: J 4. In Print Window Printer Settings Depress Properties (Printer Properties Window Opens) 5. Make Printer Properties as follows: Print Quality: Best Paper Type: HP Inkjet Printable CD/DVD Paper Source: CD/DVD Tray Landscape Size: CD/DVD 120mm Print at Actual Size Show Preview Before Printing 6. Depress OK (printer properties window closes) 7. In Print Window Media Section Select Print to Disc from drop down menu 8. In Print Window Paper Type Select on of the following from the drop down menu HP-D5160 Printing Center Hub (will print to center spindle) HP-D5160 NOT Printing Center Hub (will NOT print to center spindle - Most audio CDs) NOTE: Print Windows Print Preview Screen looks bad. Ignore it. This is why you selected preview before printing in printer properties. 9. In Print Window Depress OK (Window opens telling you to load disc in printer unless selected don't show me again on previous job) 10. Load Disc in Printer and depress OK (Print Preview Window Opens) 11. In Print Preview Window Depress Start Printing (window closes) NOTE: ON YOUR PRINTER you may have to depress the flashing print button That's it. When you want to print more labels direct to disc just follow steps in Sections D - F. If you are printing more than one label and haven't closed the label creator program, you may be able to skip some steps as the printer settings should hold (they did for me). It should also be noted that I am using Memorex Printable DVD and CDs. However, this procedure should work no matter what brand of printable discs you are using. ROXIO: If you are not in some handshake agreement with EPSON preventing you from showing other print to disc printers feel free to use this procedure and/or page files in a future update. I know It will keep many of your customers happy. ICC
  11. Thank you for your advise. I placed all services in manual - reloaded MyDVD10 and then tried enabling services one at a time and rebooting to try and identify the actual cause. The problem IS NOT related to the Roxio product. It turns out, checking event logs, that microsoft loaded Software Distribution Services 3.0 on my computer around the same time I loaded MyDVD10. This software creates the issue that I complained about (just google it on the web). Since it also prevents system restore from working (enabling removal of the software) I spent about 6 hours manually removing it. I now have automatic updates set to off and will keep a close eye on it. Thanks again to Grandpa Bruce whos advice gave an avenue of attack to the issue. For the record I wish to state once again, the problem was NOT with MyDVD10. ICC
  12. Problem sounds similar enough. I'll give it a try when I get home and let you know. Thanks.
  13. I thought of that as well. It didn't work. I'm writing this from work so I didn't include that statement since I couldn't actually identify which services I disabled. I do appreciate the sound advice. Are you aware if my issue is unique or have others experienced a similar issue? Tim
  14. I'm using a Sony Vaio running XP home edition SP2 and all updates, 2 Gig processor and 1 Gig of RAM. Saturday, 4/12, I purchased MyDVD10 Premier from Roxio, downloaded, installed (no issues on install), did a reboot checked for updates and used the program with zero issues. When I am done using my computer I power it down and secure power to it. The next time I started my computer it took 20-30 min to boot (usually takes less than 4).Additionally, the C drive is being continually accessed (scanned?) during the boot process. I rebooted in safe mode, no problems, performed virus checks and spyware checks using Norton Online check, Trend micro Housecall (online), spybot search and destroy and ZoneAlarm. No issues were found. Rebooting the machine in normal mode causes the same excess boot time. Desktop Shows, Icons Show, Startup items take forever and accessing anything is impossible until complete boot and the C drive is continually accessing Tried disconnecting Internet access (Verizon Fios) (pulled cable from card) and the machine boots normally. Reconnecting the internet cable has the problem return. Tonight I uninstalled MyDVD10 Premier and the problem has not returned. Does anyone have an idea as to what process or command within MyDVD10 is causing this issue? Is Roxio aware of it? I'm willing to work with Roxio to try and resolve the issue. Right now I've resolved to installing MyDVD10 when I wish to use it and then uninstalling it when I'm done. I Honestly don't think that will last long before I start to look for a different program.

    MyDVD Project's audio out of sync with video

    If defraging didn't fix this error, I have had problems like this when my source files (audio/video) were on two different hard drives. Since, as I understand it, your unrendered project plays fine as a project, have you tried exporting your project as an avi file onto your internal drive first (make a movie file first)? This would require recreating the chapter stops when you make a DVD, However, it seems to avoid the lipsync problems. If this doesn't work, recheck your project timeline and make sure there is nothing that can throw it off (like a video effect that isn't affecting the audio). Hope this helps
