I have a new computer which has a Lightscribe DVD burner in it. On the internet I seem to find that they talk about colour as being the colour of the disks, and wondered if you can put a copy of a colour photo on the disk in full colour. I would love to be able to colour print with Lightscribe on a disk as a presentation of a Wedding Package etc.
My printer an HP Photosmart 7360 has not got the disk printing built in to it and I don't like sticky lables on DVDs as they seem to effect the ballance of disks in the players, and sometimes come off or start lifting at the edge.
I once bought Microsoft Office from ebay thinking that it was going to be genuine as I was lead to believe. When it arrived it turned out to be a piroted copy but it looked just like the real thing as far as printing was concerned. How could they have done that? it was only the lack of hologram that gave it away as far as looks were concerned. After that the other give away was that there was no code needed to continue with instalation.
When I started to investigate the purchase, Ebay reported that the supplyer was no longer on their list of Ebayers.
Needless to say I lost out but it was not a lot of money. The old saying is true: If it looks to good to be true, then it usualy is.
The plot was, that at the time the printing I had thought might have been done on Lightscribe as it looked so much part of the disk. Now I know that it is only black on coloured disks it must have been done by a different method.
What other methods are there to print onto disks apart from Lightscribe and CD printing on bubble jet printers?
Further thought, if one prints via a bubble jet straight onto a DVD or CD as in the case of some Epson ETC.printers. How do you make the ink water proof, as bubble jet printing photographs if they get even slightly wet the ink will run and spoil them?
As you can tell I am on a learning curve about this sort of thing.
