Hello and thank you for your question, I look forward to helping you with your issue today. You will need what is called Lightscribe. It requires special CD/DVD's and software.

There are two options. The first being that you can print out CD labels and adhere them to the CDs. There are special labels that can be used which can be attached to the CDs via the glue that is on it. You can find such CD labels at the following page:
The second option is to print it directly on the CD; however, this will only work if you have a lightscribe writer.
I will be standing by.
Thank you,

If you want to print directly to the CD/DVD, Lightscribe is the only way to do that.
