Yo-

If you buy printable media - you can print directly on the top surface-

However it takes a special ink jet printer-

Use Google to find the one you want-eh!!

Or if you don’t want to go through all that you can use Lightscribe discs and
you would need a Burner capable of doing Lightscribe.

Though they don’t look near as good as Inkjet printable media.

I’m using Samsung SH-S182F, is this lightscribe enabled? I can’t seem to find this info.

If the burner is not lightscribe enabled, are there other ways to print direct onto surface?

I can´t find any info that says your Samsung SH-S182F is Lightscribe enabled.

Use printable discs and a printer that can handle printing on these discs.

Referring to the topic

I’m printing on disks with my Canon PIXMA iP6600D, many of the Pixma iP series can do this easy with very good result without the need for any dedicated CD printing only printer Such as Primera Bravo e.t.c.

From Canon you can select on of PIXMA iP4500, PIXMA Pro9500 or PIXMA Pro9500 from the models available today. And other brands have similar models I think.

And use any printable media of you choice.

I have both this and LightScribe but I uses printed disc mostly except for the CD’s used in my car. (The ink may smear in the humidity that can be in the car)
Good Luck

Some nice printers here to choose from.For some models you can also get the continuous ink refill system, saves a lot on ink.

I have used a Epson R260 with the refill system and have had great results.

I haven’t had any issue’s like this yet myself.
