Thank you for this. I did see the info about the Canon hack online. Some 
people said it was better to buy from Canada where the Canon printers 
come with the cd print capability already. I need to research this further.
Can you tell me how flexible the cd print software is? Do I have free 
range to make the label in any layout I choose? Can I change font, font 
size, move it around, and put a full image on the label?
I don't personally know anyone with a canon printer to tell me what the 
print quality is. I would hope I could safely assume that the photo 
quality of the printing whether on a disc or photo paper is acceptable.
