Is it possible to print like the disc cover, to put on a blank dd, with a normal printer?
Cheers

Yes. You can buy labels for CDs/DVDs that you can load in to your printer. I haven't used any for years so someone can probably point you in the right direct. Possibly Viking Direct or Staples, etc.

Yes, you just need disc labels and some software.

The labels come in gloss, matt etc like these for example

The most well known software is Pressit but there are free programs, you will also need an applicator to line up the label on the disc

It's just a gadget to make sure the label is alligned dead centre, there loads of different kinds and you can pick them up for a couple of quid in most computer shops

You can do it by eye but it's hard to get it perfect


Free software

i wouldnt bother as they tend to cause problems if they start to peel, most dvd and cd players dont reccomend using them. better if you can print directly onto the disk

I agree and a printable disc is cheaper than a non-printable disc + a label, but you do need a printer that can print onto discs and most printers can't

if you dont have a printer that prints onto the disk draw a nice picture instead

Epson & Canon both make printers that can print on DVDs, and they're not expensive.

Just remember not to print on the DVD until you've finished copying files on to it - for some reasons a lot of DVD writers don't like it when you've printed on them first.
