    Hi,

    Looking for anybody who owns the Canon PIXMA MP990 multifunction printer.

    the Canon website says that this machine can print directly to CD/DVD.

    I have read about ten reviews and no mention of this feature is made.

    Can anyone confirm for me that it does print to DVD?

    Regards

    no canons print on CDs

    Link to where it says it does?

    older ones can if you hack them.

    only epsons and HPs can.

    I'd better take my four year old Pixma iP5200 back then as it's defective. It's been happily printing DVDs ever since the day I bought it.

    The wife's MP990 prints DVD's fine, too.

    The recently discontinued MX850 prints on discs, too.

    Thank you very much.

    This is exactly the info and help I needed - from an actual owner of the item.

    Cheers.

    Here's the Mac OS X software to print CD/DVD labels on an (non-US) Canon MP990

    http://software.canon-europe.com/software/0034820_0010758.asp?model=

    I am just about to buy one.

    I had the same searching issue re CD/DVD printing as the initial review and Canon sites that come up are US ones that don't indicate this feature. Luckily, I don't live there...

    Is the MP990 that you bought is from Europe or in the US? Since you live in England and US :)
    Does it have tray that you can just put the CD/DvD on and print it directly? Furthermore, if anyone who live in the US and have this printer can you confirm about the tray?
    I am about to buy one too and I'm in the US and cannot find any info about that ability. Thank you.
