Like many of you, I use inkjet printers for DVD covers and Disc printing. As Epson has been the only printer manufacturer to offer disc printing in a low priced ink jet printer, I’ve pretty much ignored Canon in my printer purchases these past few years.
I’ve owned Canons before, and thought them to be quite good too. I then stumbled across this article on how to modify a Pixma series printer to print CDs and DVDs.
How in the heck is this possible? Well, it’s because Canon originally designed many of these printers with disc printing capabilities, and disabled them? Apparently some of the same printers are sold in foreign markets with the disc printing capability left intact. Why on earth would they do this? I have no idea.
