I'm confused. :) If you see only Epson printers, you have selected print to disc. I don't think your printer does that (in the US). Go back to page set up, select commercial paper and then choose the label brand and type you use. When you go to print, if you have more than one printer, you can select the one you want to use.

 

If this is not what you meant, please post back. Post back anyway so I know that your issues is resolved. :huh:

I have just purchased the Canon IP4200 (excellent printer) that definitely does print straight onto CD's and DVD's. Unfortunately I too am unable to use label creator as it only comes pre-loaded with Epsom printers. I have tried all of them and none print the image in the correct place for the Canon. I have had to resort to the Canon provided software which is vastly inferior to EMC.

 

Does anyone know how to configure EMC to use with a Canon IP4200 - if not, come on Roxio, support more printers!

Unfortunately, Roxio ignores the fact that the world is a bit bigger than the States :) In the States Epson holds four patents for direct CD/DVD printing. In the world not, because such things cannot be patented at all. So the owners of Roxio and the European, Australian or Japanese versions of Canon printers (Pixma, Pixus series) will have to use some other software. I use Acoustica Label Maker http://www.acoustica.com/cd-label-maker which perfectly works with my Pixma 4000 :D Forget Roxio and do the same.

 

PS I love narrow minded software producers :D

Last I looked, Canon ignored the U.S. and Canada. I haven't looked for about 6 months now, but the last time I looked, you could not get a Canon printer in the U.S., that could print directly to disc/disk. "Who's zooming who"?

Hmm, I will speak loud and clear. Canon will not support direct printing in USA and Canada, due to Epson patents and because it is a competitive zaibatsu (I spent some time in Japan, so I know how important it is for the Japanese). It is not the fault of Canon, or one of numerous marketing tricks.

I want to remind that Europeans could enjoy direct CD printing when, in America, Epson led fight against the rest of printing industry. It is more about it here: http://www.photo.net/bboard/q-and-a-fetch-..._id=0041eu&tag= and the forums of dpreview.com. As I said some patents are simply impossible in the EU, therefore due to competition Europeans can enjoy cheaper printers with such functionality as described above. Americans and Canadians will have to use Epson. What is interesting Americans can "unofficially" restore the functionality of their Canon printers if they buy the tray and install the European driver. Some other, rather small changes are also needed: http://club.cdfreaks.com/showthread.php?t=113465

 

A bit different story is why Roxio sells software which cannot be really useful outside of the US.

I did not realize that Roxio software does not work outside of the U.S. and Canada. I know folks in Australia and New Zealand who have the software, and they never mentioned to me that it did not work for them.
