First off you’ll need inkjet printable MCC004.

If this is your printer, then yeah you’ll need one that prints to disc.

Hopefully other members can advise you there. I personally have an Epson R265.

looks like ill have to stick with non printables

I paid something like £50 for my Epson, so they’re fairly cheap now if you do decide to nab one at some point :slight_smile:

Other options are to get a Lightscribe drive and discs, or paper labels (Probably not recommended on DVD’s if you are storing them for long term use)

Paper labels on DVDs? Danger, Will Robinson! :eek:

Sticky paper labels on DVD+/-R discs: beware!

I know, but I try to give all the options.

I personally have never had any issue with disk labels. I use Memorex labels or Avory. I use them quite often.

Epson makes some pretty nice printers I use a R260.
Printer prices are cheap enough but the Ink is where they get you.

That may be from earlier, My first R260 died after only 2 months,called in and they sent me another new one. This 1 has been running good for 8 months now with great results.

I use to get the G & G compatibles but can’t find them anymore for my model, looking at 1 of those continuous ink rigs now.
