    most dvd burns come with cover design software. mine came with the nero suite and in the it came with nero cover design, it is just like work to be honest and it is really easy to use. if not you can google the dimensions on the internet and use those for paintshop or microsoft word.

    There's lots of DVD/CD printing software packages out there.
    Google them, They arn't expensive and all do pretty much the same job.
    Don't forget the cd tray for your printer.

    Yeah. I have an Epson printer that prints directly to CD. Needless to say it came with it;s own s/w package for creating CD/DVD designs.

    However, I'm a Photoshop snob so I do all my work in there and simply import the final image to the print utility for actual printing.

    Also, I have a DVD template (Illustrator file) that gives me a wire template for a DVD case/sleave. Again I pull that into Photoshop and use the guidelines to create my own covers. Then I simply print from Photoshop at 100% size.

    I've alos got Nero 9 and that contains cover design s/w also as stated before.

    Same as Alan here - for DVD / CD printing I use Epson Print CD (bundled with the R300 printer), and for covers I use Paint Shop Pro, and a template I made myself with all the relevant guides for spine etc.

    One tip is to over size the edges just a tiny bit - there are some variances in cases and the overspill allows for adjustment before I go to work with the guillotine. I add 3mm all round just in case.

    If you're into daft hollywood style fonts for the credits box, hunt the web - there are a few out there.

    PM me your email and I;ll send you the .ai file I use for DVD covers. I really need to get around to making the same thing for blu-ray as well nowadays.
