Printing from Disc: Photos Are Grainy


Does printing from a disc create poor quality? I have tried cleaning the heads, etc.

  If you mean the old film discs, then yes, the tiny negative will produce grainy photos.
If you mean digital photos stored on a CD-ROM or DVD, it depends on the resolution of the file stored on the disc. If it is a low-res highly compressed jpg suitable for email or computer display (as is common for labs that develop/print film and also include a CD of the photos), then it will likely not have enough resolution for printing.
