Printing on DVD's : Epson Printers

Hi, I've been using my Epson Artisan 50 printer with the Continuous Ink System to print labels and it's working out great. But when I want to print on DVD's I'm not sure how I do this. I'm asking this here cause I know a lot of you use this printer. I'm currently using DiscLabel to print my labels. What software are you using to print with for you Mac users?

Thanks

Does the printer have a tray and slot to print discs with? If not, you can't.

It should be in your manual... Im not sure how that printer works compared to mine, but I would say its not hard..

That's the printer I have (well it says Epson P50), and i can confirm it does come with software called PrintCD.

fantastic printer...beats the socks off my previous epson cd printer!

i did a recent blog entry on the DVDs/Blu-Rays I'm printing off actually, if you're interested:

The blog post looks awesome! Where do you get the different cases and/or templates to print them? What type of paper do you print the inserts on? How do you get the gold etched option?

I was thinking of buying one of these epson printers but I can't find the printable DVD's here. I can find printable CD-R's but no DVD-R's.

I use photoshop to design the DVD labels. Then flatten the image and copy and paste to PrintCD to print from there. You can download the photoshop template I put together,
