    Hi everyone,

    New to the forum here. Can you tell me how to get the r200 to print all the way to the inside if using printable media without the stacking ring similar to how gregcab's photos show?

    Thanks,
    Hookani

    hookani load up the print software and down the lefthand side there a an image of a disc it's yellow in colour with arrows on it click it form there a new window opens on that select options then you can adjust the internal and external print diameters to what size you want

    Yep, notice my sample above are print-to-the-hole samples. The software that comes with the printer is very well designed.

    Thanks guys,

    From what I can gather, the inside diameter is around 23mm. Is that close to what you use. I am using Prodisk media.

    Also, I've heard you can use a spray laquer or something to keep the disk from smearing. Anybody tried that?

    Here what I set on R-200 printer.
    Inside to the hub: set to 23 mmm
    Inside to the stack ring: set to 33/41/44 mm depend on the type of media of used
    Outside set to 118 mmmm (all media)

    > spray laquer or something to keep the disk from smearing

    even some post said is good, but I never try and I never will. The quality of Epson R-200 is good enough for me.

    hey I'm planning on picking up the R200 soon, I recently bought a hundred pack of glossy labels though. Would I be able to put those on a disc, and then print to it? Just didn't know if the disc printing feature was only setup specifically for the printable discs, can you choose any options (ie glossy, high quality, etc)

    Thanks!

    I do not know if you need the R200 to print on labels.

    I only recommend to buy inkject printable media.

    I do not understand after all these posts of users reporting playback problems, that some people are still willing to try with labels.
    BUY ijp media. It's easier, faster, and you will not have potential playback problem.

    Uhm, ok, thanks, but my question was -

    As for playback problems, I don't know anything about that. I've backed up nearly all of my movies (around 160 discs) and have never encountered a playback problem with a disc that has a label. Thanks anyway.

    It would probably be easier to just print the labels first and then stick them on. In addition to printing on cd/dvds, the r200 is just a regular old inkjet printer. To answer your question though, you could stick the blank labels on and then print as if you were printing on a printable media but like I said, it would be so much easier to print the labels first and then stick them on.

    ok, that's cool. Just a pain sometimes lining them up right and all that, but I've got a good template set up. Soon as I get through these I'll go printable, thanks

    I you need compatible cartridges for that Epson 200/300 printer below is a link to a ink store that I have used for my Canon compatible compatible cartridges for the past year. Fast delivery and I really cannot tell the difference in the finished product as far as ink quality is concerned. The prices are hard to beat! Just look for yourself!

    Just copy and past the link above to your browser window.

    Where do you get all the images to scan for the DVD's? I have found a few at various sites for Music CD's but I'm cluefree as regards Movie titles.

    Has anyone found/made templates for the Epson R200/300 so we can print from photoshop or publisher, etc, instead of using the epson print cd software that came with?

    I'm just curious.
    Assume that you have template, then how does photoshop/publisher control the cd/dvd tray ????
