I think you need special dvd's for printing, i dont know if that
particular brand as that kind, when I need to do that I use
'Lightscribe' which is a feature my computer dvd recorder has that
inscribes the title in the disc, but you need a specific
recorder/media to do it. That media costs a bit more than the usual
recordable discs.
