all-in-one printer that can print directly to cd?

I want to know if such a printer exists.. I'm about to buy an all-in-one, but would also like the "print directly to cd" feature.

What do you mean by - "print directly to cd"??

Could be wrong, but I do not think there is a printer that can do that. Perhaps scan into a programme then onto a cd may be possible, but not direct.

Epson 950 will print directly onto CD.

I have copied this from the site above.

Print Directly Onto CD
Cataloguing your CD stored digital images has never been easier with the Direct CD face printing utility. With no special sticker media required, professional quality personalised CD’s can be created quickly and efficiently on your desktop. Also ideal for small businesses, education (or just for fun!) setting up a personalised CD is a simple process thanks to the CD software bundled with the Stylus Photo 950.

This means that you can stick a CD in the printer and it comes out with a pretty picture on it.

I think that 'tleibroc' means that he wants to write his pics to a CD, direct from the printer.

I may be missing something here but unless I am very much mistaken, a printer is an 'output' device, not 'input'. You send TO the printer not FROM it?

So therefore, tleibroc CAN'T write his pics to a CD from a printer.

Unless he means SCAN to the CD from an All-in-one.

No - he means print onto a CD (as opposed to printing onto a label which you then stick to a CD)

As per the link given for the Epson 950, which apparently can do so.

Though I think finding an all-in-one that can do it s a tad optimistic - I'm quite surprised to even find a printer that does it!

he means print the cd label directly onto the cd.
p.c. world do an epsom for about £180
