Hi All,

My trusty Epson R200 finally bit the dust after 7 years of faithful DVD printing service (amazing it lasted that long), and I've replaced it with a Canon PIXMA MG6220. The thing is I really don't like the bundled CD/DVD printing software that Canon ships with that printer, and so I'm wondering if any of you use any stand alone CD/DVD printing software that works well and would be compatible with the MG6220.

Your comments are appreciated!

I heard of a program called UndercoverXP, dunno if it exists anymore, but it should be very easy to use. 8834.gif

Yeah I found canon label print before I started this thread, it's actually called CD Label Print . I've been using it and it sure beats the PIXMA software, but it's very limited in functionality.

Yes, Google finds it. Can be downloaded Here or Here. I'll install it and let you know what I think. Thanks!

Yes that's the time, I use it all the time and it's good for just printing labels, what other functionality are you looking for?

Not much more functionality really. I guess I just miss the ease of use of Epson Print CD (and the GUI), especially the ease of resizing the label artwork over the "template" and resizing the CD/DVD dimensions (outer diameter & and size of the hole) was easier. CD Label Print also limits the outer diameter to 118mm, no big deal really (my Taiyo Yuden's are 119mm).

Don't get me wrong, CD Label Print is what I'm using, it works just fine. The point of starting this thread was just to see what other label printing software was available, and I appreciate the input! thumb.gif

Acoustica CD/DVD label maker is pretty solid. Has plenty of disk type and printer templates for direct disc printing. I have a Cannon Pixma IP4950 and Cannon label printing software is not great at all

Same here, I have a Canon Pixma 4950, and I cannot for the life of me understand why they replaced a perfectly useable program, with one that takes 10 times longer to use with a worse result! As I design most of my own labels, I too deleted the new program and went back to CD LabelPrint, where I have squeezed all possible functionality out of it. I use Taiyo Yuden -R's, and they print with a barely visible edge - you have to look closely to see the difference between them and a standard gloss printable dvd with an 118 mm edge.

Good luck with finding another program - I never tried the Epson, but I believe some Brother printers can print CDs & DVDs, and surely they must have their own program?

I used Acoustica when I printed labels., Very easy to use.
