Well, the Canon Pixma Series printers support the direct printing to CD's. I
have the Canon Pixma 5000, and teamed up with Turboprint it will print to the
CD's ok. All I still have to do is to get the print alignment corrected and it
will be fine.. I haven't tried it with Glabels yet, as that may be another
alternate, way of printing..
