Canon Pixma ip4000 CD printing

I am considering buying a Canon Pixma ip4000 printer, particularly for the
CD / DVD printing facility. So far I have been printing separate labels
using the Nero Cover Designer software. Is it possible to use this software
to print directly onto the disc with this printer using the dedicated
cradle, or has the supplied Canon Easy-PhotoPrint software to be used?

Also, is there any way of using the Canon software to print all the way to
the hub, using suitable full face printable discs? The Canon software I have
seen demonstrated leaves a large diameter non-printed area in the middle.

Thank you,

John B.

The IP4000 is an excellent printer, and it prints on CD's flawlessly using  
Nero Cover Designer... (I didn't like Canon's own CD printing software  
either). Just make sure you use the right (Canon) ink, and special  
*printable* discs.

I'll repeat what I posted a month ago. As you see the hole diameter is  
configurable in step 6 of creating the template, so that answers all of  
your questions... ;)

Create the new template:

1) In Nero Cover Designer goto File -> Paper Stocks
2) In the list select 'User-defined Stocks' and press the 'Add Stock'  
button
3) Give the new stock a nice name, eg. "CD-Tray PIXMA 4000"
4) Set width = 131.0mm, height = 238.7mm (got these from Printer  
Preferences dialog)
5) Press the 'Add Item' button and select 'Label'
6) Set outer radius = 59.0mm, inner radius = 22.0mm (or 11.0mm for a small  
hole in the middle)
7) Set position X = 6.5mm, Y = 87.0mm

Print onto disc:

1) In Nero Cover Designer goto File -> New and select any disc template  
(this is not the one created above)
2) Select the tab "Disk 1"
3) Choose your freshly created paper format from the drop-down box on top
4) Now paint your cover...
5) Goto File -> Print
6) On tab 'Elements' unselect the things you don't want
7) On tab 'General' press the 'Setup' button, and choose PIXMA 4000  
'Properties'
8) On tab 'Main', set Media type to "Printable disc (recommended)" (this  
will also select "Disc tray" as paper source)
9) On tab 'Page Setup', set Page size to "CD-R tray B"
10) OK, OK, OK

Many thanks. I could not wish for a better, and prompt, answer! All I have
to do now is order my new IP4000 and get printing.

Thanks again.

Everyone, it seems, is praising the Canon Pixma ip4000, without giving
the Canon Pixma ip5000 a mention.  This surprises me.

I do not possess either, but I am interested.  Is it just the price?

Would someone kindly explain please.

Emrys Davies.

Can you tell us which extra's the IP5000 has to offer?
Hmm, maybe I don't want to know this, since I already have the IP4000, and  
am very satisfied with it ;)

The main difference with the ip5000 is the droplet size and resolution. The
ip4000 has 4800 x 1200 with 2 picolitre droplet size, but the ip5000 has
9600 x 2400 resolution with 1 picolitre droplet size! What visible
difference this makes I don't know, but did read somewhere that one reviewer
thought the ip 4000 better. Best have a look for reviews about both. The
ip5000 is somewhat more expensive. There is also a ip4000R that includes
built in WiFi connectivity.

Hope this helps.

I have an IP4000.&nbsp; I think it is great.&nbsp; In some respects I wish I had
an IP5000.&nbsp; I have seen one result from it and it was fantastic but I
have never seen any direct comparisons.&nbsp; In other words the same photo
using the same paper.&nbsp; Canon does not seem to want to provide that.<br>
<br>
The printer is $40.00 more; not enough to not to buy it if the end
result is more than marginal.&nbsp; However, while 2 picoliter print heads
have been out for a long time (the entire i series), the 1 picoliter
print head is new.&nbsp; While I have not heard any negative reports I would
be concerned about print head clogging; especially if you do not print
photos frequently.<br>
<br>
I ask myself why in their narrow carriage flagship model, the ip8500,
did Canon not use the 1 picoliter engine instead opting for the proven
2 picoliter setup.&nbsp; Maybe they are field testing using their customers
and the testers.&nbsp; I do not know.<br>
<br>
I would like to see the replacement for the i9900 be a Pixma ip10000
with all of the features of the ip8500 plus a 1 picoliter (proven in
the field) droplet size with two additional cartridges, one for high
gloss and the another for a transparent protectorant.<br>

It is identical to your ip4000 except for a 1 picoliter droplet size.  
Of course there are more nozzles.

Pff, if that's all, there's no reason to consider the IP5000 in my opinion  
;)

I remember I had to choose between IP3000 en IP4000 when I bought mine.  
And because I needed a parallel interface this choice was simple, since  
the IP3000 only has a USB interface.

Is the Canon IP4000 that prints on CDs available in the USA or only
in Europe?  If it is not available in the USA, is there an easy way
to modify the USA version to print on CDs?  Thank you in advance for
all replies.

I can only say for sure that the CD printing feature IS included in Europe  
and that it is NOT in the USA, but I don't know for other parts of the  
world...

Also I don't know whether the package in the US simply lacks the extra CD  
tray, or that the printer is physically different so that is theoretically  
impossible to print on CD...

hold on......
choosing between ip3000 and ip4000 is way bigger than between ip4000 and 
ip5000, since ip3000 doesn't have extra photo black cart, which really

on the other side, i guess that a man can (that's can't) see the difference 
between 4000 and 5000 similar as most can't hear the difference between CD 
music and on encoded with high mp3 bitrate...there IS a difference, i guess, 
it's just simple human eye can't really see it, so it's no use of extra 
money...maybe if someone prints larger formats or similar. There's also 
question of the point since ink absorbs, even just a bit, and so etends it's 
size on paper. Some also have doubts about 1 pl drops and possible more 
clogging problems.
It's quite interesting also how some doesn't see the difference between 4000 
and one with 6 carts (or is it 7---one with extra red and green)...

Does anyone have any similar set up instructions for Surething CD Labeller 
Deluxe? I tried creating a new template but couldn't get it anywhere near 
the CD. All I've managed at this stage is a workaround of creating the label 
in Surething, exporting it out as a BMP and importing it into Canon's CD 
printer software to print from there. A bit of a pain though.

See this link:
http://pete.mvd2.com/custom_templates.htm
get both templates for cano i865 and i9950 and modify them
on this page
http://pete.mvd2.com/pagesetup/index.htm
you have explained how to modify,

just bear in mind that ip4000 page size values are 13,1 cm width and 23,87 
mm  height
Then CD label start position left is 0,65 cm and top is 8,7 cm
then get old coaster (normal, not printable), draw a black circle onvery 
outer edge of new design and another one at very inner edge. Print this 
design to coaster and you'll see if it's centered. If not, correct start 
position values.
Don't forget to set printer properties - media type to Printable 
CD(recomended), and page size to CDR tray B

Ops...those two templates don't have full face, so they have quite a big 
inner ring, and in Surething inner ring can't be altered.
SO, i guess you'll have to change existing template in a way second link 
explains.

INCORRECT!

The ip5000 does not have any additional cartridges.  It has a higher 
resolution and a 1 picoliter droplet size.  It prints somewhat slower 
than the ip4000.  According to PCWorld review against the ip4000 the 
business graphics and documents are much better on the 5000 but the 
photo quality is marginally better on the 4000.

While I have not heard of this happening, I would be concerned that the 
small droplet size could lead to print head clogging down the road but I 
do not know.  I cannot understand why Canon choose a 2 picoliter droplet 
size over the 1 for their flagship ip8500.

I too purchased an ip4000 prior to the ip5000 and considered returning 
the ip4000 and purchasing an ip5000. After reading all of the reviews, I 
am glad I have the ip4000 and will keep it.  The next printer I may buy 
is the successor to the i9900.

Canon Pixma IP4000: Howto do CD Printing ?

Can anyone comment -for certain- if the new Cannon Pixma line (4000/5000) is able to print directly on CD/DVD's? There seems to be quite a bit of uncertainty about this. Originally it seemed as though only UK models did, but now I've heard rumors that the North America versions can as well.... Anyone own one of these, and can say for sure?

Hi, my father has bought a Pixma 4000 and has commented over an issue with the supplied software - which would appear to only allow the internal cd hole diameter to be reduced to +/- 10mm which seems to make the minimum hole 33mm. However he says the software screen states the maxmum outside diameter of the print can be 118mm and the inside no less than 17mm - which is fine if you can change the setting by this much.. As the FULL face printable discs he uses has an internal diameter of 23mm how does he alter the print software to this figure - as it seems to stick on -10mm from the...

Canon PIXMA ip4000. Duplex printing.
Hi. I'm a fresh owner of Canon PIXMA ip4000. This is a really good printer. Everything works fine but I don't understand one thing. When I print pages with ticked duplex printing function, everything black text/pictures/etc. looks like it is printed using only half tone of colour. Explanation: If you for example normally print 50% of colour e.g. black on purpose it is printed as dither pattern. But when you use solid kolor (e.g. black) it is printed as solid. When I print as a duplex it prints me solid colours as a dither patter like in about 50% of colour whilst when I switch off the duplex function everything looks standard. Please help me to solve this problem. Best regards. Bye. Zebbik wrote: > Hi. > > I'm a fresh owner of Canon PIXMA ip4000.

For everyone interesting in printing to CDR with Canon's ip4000 and Surething CD labeler, i created a template and put it on following link: http://www.angelfire.com/ex/protoncek/CanonPIXMA4000.zip I hope that link works, otherwise reply here and we'll sort thing out. I also hope it works OK. In any case, maybe you should make a test print before you actually print on new CD for this purpose download this design: http://www.angelfire.com/ex/protoncek/ip4000_test_design.zip open it and print it to coaster - you can use normal one (no need for printable), as it's only a black circle and it will show on normal CDR, too, so you'll see if it's centered. If not, open page setup and correct start positions. have fun! Absolutely bloody brilliant!! Worked first time. Thanks a million sleeperman! Caitlin wrote: > Absolutely bloody brilliant!!

Canon CD Print Software With Epson Printer?
I have two printers that print directly onto CD's, the Canon i865 and Epson R310. I'm having problems with the CD Print software that came with the Epson one, so i was wondering if it's possible to just use the Canon one? Or is each piece of software designed with only one printer in mind? Kris ...

Canon IP4000 not printing black on cd's?
Whenever I print black on a cd its comes out green. Printing black on paper works fine. Can anyone confirm this printer uses the large black ink cart when printing on paper and the small one when printing cd's? Thanks Andy PS. All carts are Canon's own. Canon and PCWorld dont want to know since it is now outside 12 month warranty. PCWorld's response was: ===================================================================== Thank you for your email. As the model is out of warranty, we would need proof that the fault was inherent at the time of purcha...

Warning about Canon PIXMA iP3000/iP4000 series printers
We were considering buying a Canon PIXMA iP3000 because these are the first printers we have ever seen that finally quit ripping people off quite so much on ink. The whole printer ink jet market, until now, has been a scam, making you spend an average of $40-$60 buy new print heads and cartridges for all three colors because one color runs out. That is like having to replace your gas tank, fuel pump, radiator, water pump, windshield washer tank and wiper motors, because you ran out of gas or got too low on radiator fluid. Oh, and by the way, there are no gauges, or transparent tanks, and no ...

Canon IP4000 Printing CD-R , Hints Require
Hello All, I bought a Canon IP4000 inkjet printer couple of days ago. I must admit the overall printing quality is very impressive. However, I do have some problems of printing directly onto CD-R. The problems are 1) the colour on the CD-R is pale 2) the colour takes long time to dry; even over 20 hours after printing, I can still wipe the colour off with finger (this is using LIGHT in the SATURATION option) I wonder whether anyone has any experience on this, am I doing things correctly or am I missing something. Anyone wants to shed some light on this? Many thanks in advanc...

Canon Pixma iP4000 refuses to print on empty ink
Hi all, a Canon Pixma iP4000 is used both from Mac and Win XP via USB (either or). The current default Win printing setup is to print BW only - most of the printouts are plain text. For any reason the printer used up the color ink very fast before. I guess, OOo on the Mac did not know about the black text ink, nor the black photo ink and used YMC instead - those where empty first. Now photo black was empty. The printer extension (Win) then refused to print the next BW page. Its help mentionned that printing could be done on one's own risk. However, there was no option at a...

Canon IP4000
I've have this printer about a year, and been happily printing CDs all that time, then suddenly last week it stopped working. Every time I insert the tray, it just spits it out again. I'm getting this message: "The CD-R tray is not inserted or a printable disc is not placed on the CD-R Tray. Insert the CD-R tray with a printable disc in the Inner Cover and then press the RESUME button. Printing will then restart." Any ideas what the problem might be? TIA > Every time I insert the tray, it just spits it out again. > Any ideas what the probl...

Canon IP4000 CD printing / update driver after OS reinstall
Hi, all. I have a Canon IP4000 that I modified the driver and registry to allow CD-R printing. Recently, I had to reinstall my OS, bringing my computer back to default factory settings. I am trying to reinstall the driver for my printer but it isn't recognizing the port/printer and won't reinstall. Does anyone have experience with this? Thanks. ...

fyi: print on cd/dvd with Canon printers U.S.
In the United States the Canon printers are disabled from printing directly on cd/dvd's. I think this is due to Epson having a patent on it (i.e. direct printing on cd/dvd's) in the United States. Canon would be infringing on this patent.. Those of you interested in it, here is a series on enabling U.S. printers. http://pixma-faq.periastron.com/1.html http://pixma.damnmachine.com Much better site with updated info and forums. ...

UPDATE: "Problem with Canon Pixma ip4000 printer"
I received a brand-new (refurbished? not sure) ip4000 Pixma tonight from Canon, even though my defective one was two weeks past warranty. And yes, it came with a new print head and new ink. So, thanks to this excellent customer service, my opinion on Canon has done a 180: (reversing my earlier, knee-jerk vow) I will definitely continue buying Canon products.
