The reason I have never used the printer is that same instruction books says that disks with raised lines or letters will cause the printer to print poorly. At the time that I bought the printer, all of my disks had raised letters so I never tried it. At that time I bought extra colored ribbons from J&R I think. They are getting old now. Has anyone bought Casio printer ribbons recently?
I printed a couple after burning, and they played fine. But, to be on the safe side, I almost always print before burning. I print on the Tys, which have no lettering, or raised areas. When I have to print on Verb +R DLs, I am careful to line up the disc so that it doesn't print across the lines, and I get acceptable copies. There can be a bit of variation when it prints on a line that is already on the disc.
It's been a while since I bought cartridges. A few months back, someone on the forum claimed that they weren't going to be made any more, and they were hard to find. Well, they weren't hard to find, but I ordered a bunch. They are much cheaper in 3-packs. Sometimes Blue (acceptable to me) is a lot cheaper than Black, sometimes not. Usually, 3-Packs with 3 different colors are the cheapest. Look them up on Amazon, get the number, and google that, to find the cheapest deal. Unfortunately, SMS doesn't carry them.
