does anyone here scan a cover of a dvd and then print it on a dvd-r?
It's easier to download them.
I scan and print dvd covers, and scan the disc label, and print it on my disc, so it all looks like the original. Sometimes I'll buy a dvd from the pawn shop, and the cover will be messed up, so I'll use the http://www.cdcovers.cc site, to print out a good copy. If I record a movie from the tv, I'll use the site also, for the cover and disc label art.
I like the backups to look as close to the original as possible......
I have an HP C4180 printer/copier/scanner that let's me scan the discs I want to print, and then I print the writable media disc (I use Taiyo Yuden for my archive copies) using an Epson R380 printer that does discs too. I was a little hasty in the Epson...I ordered it from a mom and pop computer store for $200, and later found it on the web for $140! One drawback with it though, it takes SIX different color cartridges - $20 bucks apiece! But it does a fantastic job I will admit. I use full size Memorex single disc cases from K-Mart, use their blank media inserts, and just go wild with the graphics and text - a lot of fun for making wisecrack reviews!
See the Epson compatible ink here:
All 6 cartridges cost about what one costs, that you buy. I use the generic ink in my R200, and it works great! Been using it for two years, with no problems. No need to pay $20 for each cartridge!
Ihoe scans and prints. Also the Epson settlement is June 20th http://www.epsonsettlement.com/ Chris
