Casio Disc Printer Driver

Postby Emegra » Tue Oct 23, 2012 4:30 pm

Hi Everyone
I recently bought a Casio CW-75 Disc lablel printer at a boot sale for £2, brand new still in the box, what a bargain I thought, anyway after hours of googling and searching the internet including the Linux hardware compatibility website It looks likes there is no Linux driver for this machine (or at least not one that I can find), can anyone tell me if there is any generic driver I can use or some other way way I can get this to work with my Linux machine

Any help or advice would be much appreciated

Many thanks
Graeme

this review

http://www.ebay.com/ctg/Casio-CW-75-Lab ... -/48460057

refers to the device as

a standalone way to print titles on the audio CD's


.......as you say............no reference to it on any linux related topics!

truly standalone.....................

Hi pdc_2
Thanks for your reply, I understand it can be used as a standalone printer but it's not purely standalone, it comes with a usb port to connect it to a PC along with printing software for Windows, I have successfully used it to print some CD labels but my problem is that it has a very small screen with no backlight and I have a problem seeing it.

Many thanks

Graeme
