Having 4 small kids in the house I had to backup DVDs to preserve the originals. I used AnyDVD and CloneDVD (always updated) and Sony DRU500 for read and Plextor 708U (now 716U) for recording (always latest firmware) and the media was either Verbatim, Sony or TDK (all DVD+R). I also scanned the DVD and printed the image on Neato glossy paper (on an inkjet) and placed the lable on the DVD. The DVDs would play in my Pioneer Elite DV37 and then later start pixilating and stopping. I blamed the kids on rough handling, made new copies at lower speeds, different media etc. but the problem persisted. Finally I learned on this forum about the horror of the sticky lables on the DVDs!
So I want to print the images on the DVD itself and I see that some members here have done that but I am confused about the printable areas on the DVDs themselves. Do the Epson printers print all the way to the middle (we call that full face lable) or just to the large inner circle like a music CD (you know what I mean). Is this a DVD disc issue (if you can print to the inner hub) or a printer issue or software issue?
I am also confused about the white vs silver printable DVDs.
Any body using the Primera Signature Z6 printer?
Sorry for the general questions but this could help other members in the same dilema.
