I have now bought my Canon Pixma ip4000 printer.WOW!! The template details
for printing DVDs with Nero Cover Designer, posted by S.V. Groeneveld, are
spot on. (re-copied below)Many, many thanks. (Sorry all you folks in the
States where CD / DVD printing is not an option)

A4 colour prints are fantastic. Like my older Canon S450 printer, if the
print head does ever fail, it is so easy to replace and not that expensive
if you shop around. It does not require a new machine as per Epson; and ink,
especially if bought in bulk, means minimal costs. Duplex printing works
likea dream.A most recommenended machine.

Happy New Year,

John B.

That IS a question...when my i550 died, i ask around and new head came 85%
of the price of new ip4000...definitely not worthed.

hi,

I have got a cd/dvd printer Canon iP4600 and when I use its software the maximum limit to lower the inner and outer circle is up to +10mm and -10mm. when I print on a dvd, the inner circle remains white.

I have got Nero Express 7, can I use this programm to print on dvds? My tray is tray G, how can I find its template? can I use the same steps like those given for the canon pixma iP4000 even though he has tray B?

Thanks for your help in advance, hope I solve this problem

Using the above nfo, I was able to go into Nero Cover Designer, copy the settings for CD Stomper Pro Letter, then make a new one, just changing the inner circle settings. It worked great. Wish I had known years ago that you could do this. Thank you. Have Full Face paper labels that I can now use, plus the print on disk option!
