  1. I have a Canon printer/scanner/copier. Earlier I used to directly color copy the DVD fronts onto the sticky labels by placing the DVD over the scan glass and copying it on the label. I've stopped using labels now since I realised that they screw up my dics.
    I want to diretly print the image onto the DVD's since i use printable DVD's. If my printer is like the Epson how would i go about doing it?

    I doubt very much that it can print direct to CD's or DVD's. You need a printer designed for the job. The Epson R200 is good and cheap for this job. Then you need printable disks. These tend to be slightly more expensive than non-printable equivalents.

    Yes, it comes with a special tray and a slot at the front to load it.

  5. What about the Canon IP3000? I saw the machine being advertised in the shop as capable to print on DVD's and CD's. The loading tray dows not bend the paper as in most machines but i didn't see any special tray with it. Also, is it any good?

    IIRC the Canon IP 3000 sold in the US doesn't print directly to cd/dvd media. Something about Epson saying they have a patent right and infringement. The one's sold over seas don't have this patent infringement.

    Yep, just confirming that any Canon sold in the US or Canada does not have the direct to disc capabilities because of a patent issue with epson.

    I've got an i865 and it rocks !
    If in doubt, Google it.
