Label Creator

Question

I have created a number of projects in Creator 2010 and previous versions, but have always designed my DVD labels to print directly to DVD's on my old Epson R200 which has generally worked well. I just purchased an HP 309c Photosmart printer which also has the capability to print directly on CD/DVD media. The sad news is HP's label design software is very basic and very limited, but the print quality is good.

Never having used the Label Creator feature in any version of Roxio I've owned, I don't know the capabilities or limitations. I did note a general statement in Label Creator Help that said Roxio was compatible with a number of printers with direct CD/DVD printing. However, I can't find where to look for these "compatible" printers.

Anyone familiar with direct to CD/DVD printing?

The most important thing to remember is that both the Roxio program AND the printer must be set to print to DVD/CD.

 

Does the printer show up in the printer options? When you open Roxio Lable Creator does your printer show as one of the options? Can you set the options to print to CD/DVD and then use the printer properties to set the printer to CD/DVD, manual feed, etc?

There shouldn't be any offest for direct printing to disc - it can only be in one position really.

 

Offset was for fine tuning on stock paper where it could be out of alignment

 

The reason I'm looking for the "offset" value has to do with information I read in a pinned post by "leadingedge" on February 12, 2010, referenced by Brendon above. According to the post, I need this value which is unique to my printer model.

No, none of the HP models in the printer options; only Epson models.

check this pinned post (it's for Creator 2011 but should work)

 

http://forums.support.roxio.com/topic/67273-label-creator-direct-to-disc-printing/

 

I missed seeing this post because I was in the Creator 2010 discussion area. This post, for Creator 2011 dated August 28 appears to be an update to a similar post for Creator 2010 dated August 14. This latest post specifically notes that model HP C309, the one I have, "has been confirmed to work"; at least on Creator 2011. I'll give it a try on 2010.

 

Thanks for the info.

 

UPDATE.........................

Loading the JWP files from GGrussell did the trick. I can confirm that the HP C309 prints correctly in Creator 2010.

 

Thanks all for you help!
