MY NEW PRINTER ISN'T LISTED IN ACOUSTICA CD LABEL

Post by 55Dudester » Mon Jul 22, 2019 9:23 am

I was forced to purchase a new printer, as my old one died. So I purchased a Canon Pixma TS8120 printer to print cd's. However, in the list of printers in CD LABEL, this new model doesn't show, therefore, I can't get the software and my new printer to work together. Any suggestions ?
Thanks.

Hi,

Look for the Canon TS8000 Series template. If you don't have that, quit the label maker and download and install the Acoustica CD/DVD Label Maker Label Template Updater.

Ok thanks Greg, I have it now. However now, when I ask CD LABEL to print the CD label I made, it will only print to the 8.5 x 10 paper inside the printer. So I removed all the paper inside the Canon, and tried again, but it keeps telling me the printer has no paper......As you know, I don't want it to print on paper, but rather the cd in the cd supplied try from the printer. Is there a setting in CD LABEL I am not seeing ? I never had any issues before printing with my old Canon ip7220, but this new one, doesn't play nice.

Hi,

Make sure you have selected the correct template in the Paper Type setting:

That's EXACTLY what I did Greg, yet it still wants to print on the paper in the printer. I can't figure out why it won't allow the cd tray with the cd in it to print. Darn printers are a real pain.

Ok, got it working. Had to go into "properties" and under "Media Type" change if from "plain paper" to "printable disc" (bleed proof) Thanks Greg. One last thing. I have some printable cd's that have a large hole in the center, and another patch of printable's that have a small hole. How do I change the size of the hole in the print for which ever CD I will be printing ? Sorry for being such a pain.
Thanks again.

Ok, I figured out the different hole size thing...Had to go to "alignment" on the print page. Sorry for the bother.

Hi,

Just so you know, if the name of the template contains the word "full," then that will have the smaller center hole.

In the screenshot above, I've got the Canon TS8000 Series full printable CD/DVD template selected. The template called "Canon TS8000 Series printable CD/DVD" would have the large center hole.

Thank you Greg, I made note of that. Will there ever be a newer version of CD Label someday ?
