Also need help with selecting printer

I’m looking for an all in one (multifunction) printer to copy, print and fax. I would also like to print on cd/dvds. And if I could have it all, I’d like to print on both sides - duplexing, 4 x 6 tray for pictures, wireless, etc.

Most of the printers that can print to cd/dvd do not fax, so that leaves out the Epson printers. Some have said the Canon (I currently have an older Canon, and happy with it) Pixma Mp780 is good, MP830 is good, but when I look at them on the Canon web site, they say nothing about printing on cd/dvd. I stopped by Bestbuy, but was told Canon does not print on cd/dvd. Office Depot and Office Max told me the same. So, I’m confused.

For a good all-in-one that can print to cd/dvd, does anyone have a recommendation. I’ve read some reviews about cd trays. Maybe this is my missing link.

Thanks, Tom

There are no Canon models that fax AND print to disc AFAIK. Closest thing and the best deal right now is the MP-610 which will soon be unavailable. You have to do a printer mod to enable disc printing, but it’s not difficult.

you can do every thing you want with an MP530, you will need to buy the cd or dvd tray on ebay for about $23.00. the mp530 is a great printer that uses the Cli cartridges that are very easy to refill. if you go on ebay it is a canon cd printer tray D here is the link

Thanks everyone. If I don’t go with Canon, are there other brands that fax and print on cd/dvd? If I go with Canon, do these cd printer trays work for other models of Canon? Are you happy with printing on cds with the MP530?

Thanks again, Tom
