i have a lexmark x4580 all in one printer and would like to know if this can print direct onto blank dvd`s

You can only print onto Printable DVD's not plain ones

No , I don't think it can. Very few printers can print directly onto disks, but I can reconmend the Epson stylus photo R220, which can.

No mention of printing on CDs at the Lexmark site click here

ok if the lexmark x4580 does not do this could i buy some type of attachment for this.

Very highly unlikely, I doubt if such attachments exist.

I have the Epson Stylus Photo R265 which does print direct to CD/DVD's, and is excellent.

If you want to print labels on them, there are many disk labelling programs available, from PC world for instance together with the appropriate tool for placing them accurately on the disks after you have printed them.

I've used one for years, with no problems

the epson r300 is a very god model and can do this

Also, as woodchip has said - you need the special printable blank CD/DVDs, their upper printable side is plain White.

You can also by Disc Printer, Made just for that job

No Idea of the cost but it is possible to get then from about £80
