Printing and Exporting Documents

Printing Directly on a Disc

You can print directly on a CD or DVD if this feature is supported by your printer (and if Disc Cover supports your printer).

To print on a disc:

  1. Open your disc design in the main window.
  2. Select your printer and tray type in the layout list (File > Change Layout…).
  3. Open the Print dialog (File > Print…).
  4. Make sure that the correct printer is selected.
  5. Set up the number of copies.
  6. Click the Options button to revise the print options.
  7. Click the Next button.
  8. In the system print dialog, make sure the correct printer is selected.

    Epson printers:
    In the Layout drop-down list, open the Print Settings (or Printer Features) section. Set Media Type to CD/DVD. Disc Cover can set up the Media Type automatically if you install the Epson EasyPrint software. You can find it here:

    For more information refer to the User's Manual of your printer.

    Canon printers:
    In the Layout drop-down list, select the Quality & Media section. Set Media Type to Printable disc. For more information refer to the User's Manual of your printer.
  9. Click Print.

Problems at Printing

Sometimes, you may need to update the printer driver to solve the problem.

An error message from the printer driver can tell you that the front printer cover is opened, or improper media type is selected. This is common while using Epson R800 or R1800. To solve the problem, select the paper format recommended by the printer manufacturer (usually "A4 (Manual Feed)" or "A4 (CD/DVD)"). Following the steps above, in the Print dialog of Disc Cover, open the Tray Type pop-up menu and choose Page Setup. In the Page Setup dialog, set Paper Size to A4 (Manual Feed). This paper format will be set up automatically when you print on a disc at the next time. In the system print dialog, go to the Paper Handling section, and select Scale to fit paper size check box. In the Destination paper size pop-up list, select A4 (Manual Feed).
