105 Create Labels for Your CDs and DVDs with DME

 <  Day Day Up  >  

Before You Begin

100 Install Microsoft Plus! Digital Media Edition (DME)

When you produce movies and save them on CDs and DVDs, you can write the title on each CD or DVD with a felt-tipped marker, but that looks cheap. Instead, use the Microsoft Plus! Digital Media Edition to create labels for your CDs and DVDs that contain the movie title, your name as producer, and eye-catching graphics.



You need to purchase specialized adhesive paper for your labels. The Plus! CD Label Maker creates inserts for CD and DVD cases and prints lists such as the album's contents on those inserts. You can use plain paper for the inserts , but you need CD and DVD-ready adhesive labels for the CD and DVD labels you create. Record your CD or DVD before attaching the label, because many burners won't correctly write to a disc with a label.

The Plus! CD Label Maker is a program that comes with the DME enabling you to design and print labels. The CDs or DVDs will play perfectly with these labels, and you can easily print the labels on your printer. This task demonstrates an overview of what you will do to create customized labels for your CDs and DVDs. You can create extremely fancy labels if you dive into all the program's features.

The movies you create have pizzazz, so why shouldn't the labels on your CDs and DVDs?
