I am using Nero 8 and CoverDesigner 3. I am trying to use print to center discs, but there is no template or option to allow this that I can find. I am using an HP printer. HP software allows print to center but does not allow the freedom to manipulate the image placement. Am I just doomed to use what I have? Can anyone help out here?

Hi! I run into the same issue. There is a paper stock to print to discs, but it will not print to the center, so I created my own paper stock. You have to call up file > paper stocks, add a stock and then fidle about with the values.

Can anyone be more specific? One could waste a lot of printable disks using the trial and error method. I can use Roxio Express Labeler with the HP Photosmart D5360 Printer, but it does not permit much in the way of formatting options. Perhaps the only solution is to purchased the full Roxio labeler program. It would seem to me that Nero should be able to do this.

This should work for HP: [/size]

Call up CoverDesigner.

-> A window "New Document" will appear



Select any Template.

- The Design area will show up.



Call up "File > Paper Stocks..." from the menu bar.

-> A window "Paper Stocks" appears.



Highlight "User defined Stocks".

Click "Add Stock"

-> A new Stock is added (called Stock 1).

Highlight Stock 1.

-> You can change the name of the stock to your liking.



Change Width/Height to the following values:

Width: 130,000mm Height: 130,000mm

Do not forget the commas

Set "Feed paper as:" to "Portrait"

-> The preview of the paper stock should show a square design.



Click "Add Item"

-> a context menu appears

Click on "Disc" (Second but last item)

-> a greyed out disc appears in the preview, aligned to left and top of the square.



Highlight "Disc" in the left hand window.

-> The disc in the preview will change its colour.



Now adjust the values for disc size:

Outer radius: 58,000 mm

Inner radius: 12,000 mm

- > Inner and outer radius can be adjusted according to the target discs you use. Simply measure the diameter of your discs and divide by 2 to get the proper values for these entries.



Now adjust the values for the Position (X/Y)

7,000mm / 7,000mm



-> The disc in the preview will move to the correct position.



When you have finished click O.K. You can now use your own paper stock.



If you are using inches as default Linear measures the values have to be the following:



[size="2"]For the paper stock: Width/Height: 5,118" /5,118"


For the Outer radius: 2,283"

For the Inner radius: 0,453"

For Position x/y: 0,276" / 0,276"

Thanks to the person that posted the print setting for the HP printer to print to the hub of a DVD/CD using Nero CoverDesigner. I have a HP D5360 printer and am using Nero 8 with CoverDesigner v. 3.3.3.0, but when I try printing the DVD/CD, using the exact same procedure as posted, the printer kicks the DVD out and I get the following error on the printer: CD/DVD tray open close to resume printing. If I close the tray it will print normally to a regular piece of paper. It seem if I choose anything other than Hewlett-Packard Print on DVD/CD 120mm on the CoverDesigner toolbar the printer will error out. I emailed Nero, but they said it would only support the above option, Hewlett-Packard Print on a DVD/CD 120mm.

I have tried several different combinations of print configuration, but none worked. Does anyone out there have any suggestions?? Thanks,

Perhaps the printer driver lets you select the paper source ( Paper / CD ). You should select CD!
I don't know HP, but with Epson there is a similiar selection.

BTW: It would be very helpful, if one could edit the predefined paper stocks.
