Hi Ian
These look ok and I presume I can print them in my printer by just inserting the sheets whereI load my A4 paper.Correct

Could you let me have details of your printer

ponytail: yep, that's what you do. Most CD printing software is laid out to take advantage of these A4-based templates, although it can take a little trial and error to get it exactly right.

Like KremmenUK says, though, with 'printable' CDs/DVDs, you can get some excellent results. From what I can see, your printer should support printing direct onto the CD and you shouldn't need to use labels. Doing this, you also minimise the (very slight) danger of a label detaching or getting torn/creased in the drive.

I ended up investing in a LightScribe drive - about £25 from PC World - and while LS-compatible DVDs are slightly more expensive, the results look more professional(IMHO.

Don't Forget you need the correct CD, DVD to print on, it does not work on cheap normal CD's

The Epson Photo 900 does have direct printing onto CD/DVD discs so you have the choice of sticking on blank labels and printing them inside your printer or printing direct onto printable discs. Having tried both over the years I much prefer the latter.

hi chub_tor
Have you used the same printer as mine.If I were to stick the label on the disc what is the procedure for actually printing ie how do I get the disc into the print heads.The printer came with a black plastic tray with a indentation for a disc which I presume is used for doing the printing but how is it fitted to the printer.

Read the manual, I have not used one but think it goes in at the back with disc loaded and acts as a Pass through You need to turn the Printer round and look for the slot
