    Hey Guy's

    Well I have now printed on 2 DVD's unsuccessfully with the image generally being about 25% off center.

    I have been using CoverXP and set my settings to 118mm/42mm for RitekG04 as instructed by others.

    What am I doing wrong? Should I use Nero instead? Any steps on setting them up to print would be appreciated!

    Thanks

    It just came with the standard photo editing software, but I want to use either NEro or CoverXP as does everyone else here as well.

    This is why I need the settings for one of these 2 applications if anyone can help out please!

    Are you printing with an Epson (R200, R300)?
    If so, why don't you use Epson printCD?

    I have a different opinion: "the others" are using the Epson software.

    Alright, thanks for the advice I will definitely try it this evening.

    Most of the others I have spoken with are using Nero, you I assume use PrintCd?

    Thanks a lot

    I also have nero. I never tried it. It's pretty easy with PrintCD, so I did not try another solution.

    The only "bad note" that I give to PrintCD is you cannot create and save differenttemplates if you are using different disks (hub, non hub). You would like to have a setup for each. Well you can't. Epson will always show you the last one you have used.

    Just make sure that you always check before you print. I've learned the hard way :(

    Check what before you print, the hub settings?

    Yeap,

    What I mean:
    You print a nice non-hub G04, Great, You are happy.

    The next day, you want to print another picture that can be printed to the hub.
    You insert that burned dvd in the tray and you press print.

    Oh no!
    You forgot to change the inner diameter to 22mm.
    Tooooo late and trow away this disk.

    Happened to me and I guess I am not the only one.

    Thanks a lot.

    I installed Epson PrintCD tonight and all I can say is WOW! :)

    Everything is working great now!

    Thanks again for the tip.

    When I was at home yesterday I opened the Nero print cover software.
    It is designed to print on labels, not dvd/cd. I do not know much about label, but I guess there is a margin and this is maybe the reason why you were having 1" offset.

    Happy that you got it working :)
