    .My printer is a Brother DCP-J315W.Just wondered if it was possible to print CD labels on this printer.On my previous Epson printer I was able to insert the blank label and print onto it.I do have A4 size printer sheets which I could print to but then would have to cut them to fit the disc which is not easy.Anybody out there have any suggestions.Have been told to get some Avery labels which I can print on.Can someone tell me how I actually use my printer to print them I must need something else besides the labels

    I used to have a utility for printing cd labels, came with the labels. Don't have near by so can't help further.
    You might get more help if your thread is labelled correctly.
    Tell me what it should be and I can edit it for you.

    Hi Sparky10 thanks for the reply it looks good you say I just put a A4 sheet into the printer tray and select what needs printing.I am presuming the A4 sheets have the round shape of the disc in the centre of the sheet.When they are printed how do you remove the disc label part rom the rest of the sheet is it perforated perhaps

    Hi, Yes the round covers are pre cut and just peel away after printing.

    Hi, With the supplied sheets, the round covers are off set from the centre, this allows for the other stickers that go with the sheets, there is supplied software that calibrates the printer to centre up the round covers if memory serves me correctly.

    I used to faff about with sticky disk labels etc. Not any more.........
    bought an Epson printer that prints directly onto disks, just buy the full face printable CD's/DVD's and off you go!
    SO much better than those horrible sticky label sheets, looks much more professional. Printer and disks are cheap!

    Hi Sparky 10 I am afraid I only bought this printer about six months ago and at the time never thought about printing onto discs.I did have a Epson which would print directly to the disc but had a lot of problems and then it just gave up so bought this one.For the amount of disc printing I will be doing this is fine.About the paper you say the supplied paper has the round covers off centre and you need the software to calibrate the printer.What would be the situation if I bought the paper myself with the covers in the middle of the sheet so the printer would not need to be calibrated.Could I just print onto that sheet peel off the cover and fit it to the applicator.

    Hi, It has been a while since I actually used this type of paper, but I have found some, I may have mislead you into the calibration bit, because looking at the paper it appears to be central on the sheet. I believe that if you buy the kit from the link that I gave you it will have all that you need to do what you require. I put a photo of the paper here for you to see, hope this helps you.
