Re: only 1 copy at time

The previous poster is most likely correct. You have to use Microboards ink for the PF-2, PF-3 and PF-Pro printers. The part number you need is the PRF38ml. The PF-2 printer has a sensor for the barcode on the PRF38ml as well as a RFID chip for verification.

If this does not fix your issue, then the sensors that scan the barcode and the RFID chip may be broken, dirty or out of alignment. If so, you need to contact Microboards or an authorized Microboards repair center for repair services.

Can not print direct to cd dvd

  1. Find a printer that prints directly on a CD; this is becoming a popular feature and these printers are getting more affordable.
  2. Step 2 Buy some printable media. Printable media is a bit harder to find and a bit more expensive but you need a special surface that will absorb the ink. They will be marketed as "inkjet printable" discs. Look for them online or at your electronics store.
  3. Step 3 Set up your printer for CD-R printing. Chances are your printer can print on paper and CDs, so you'll have to let your printer know what you are up to. In your printer properties, select CD or DVD as your media type. You can do this from the print dialog right before you print.
  4. Step 4 Clean the rollers. You can do this by running a clean sheet of paper through the printer without printing anything. Load up several sheets of paper and press the cancel button to feed it through. Do this a couple times.
  5. Step 5 Pull out the tray. This may be a separate part of your printer or built-in. Read the manual and learn how to pull it out properly before you go yanking at random and breaking things.
  6. Step 6 Place the CD in the tray. Make sure there is no dust or paper scraps on the tray and place the CD on the tray so it lies flat and the printable side is facing up. For smaller CDs, place the adapter first and then put the CD down.
  7. Step 7 Insert the CD tray into the printer. If the tray was attached to the printer, put it back where it came from. For separate trays you may need to wait until you are ready to print and load it into the manual feed.
  8. Step 8 Design your label. Your printer will have come with label designing software. Take some time. Make it pretty.
  9. Step 9 Print. Double check your print settings and print directly onto your CD. Choose "File" then "Print" and click "Okay." If you are loading manually, now is the time. Manual loading slots are usually on the back.
  10. Step 10 Allow your CD to dry. It is recommended to let it sit for 24 hours. There is a lot of ink on there and you do not want to ruin it with smudges.

Do you know how to print on a CD/DVD?

I have just bought the same printer. if you have found out how to do this then excuse me. It isn't clear cut but basicaly all you do is :-
1/ Make sure you have a blank label stuck on your disc, you can also buy printable discs.
2/ Place the cd onto the cd holder label side up.
3/ Pull the front cover down - where the paper comes out.
4/ If you look carefully further inside where the paper comes out you will see another flap/cover - carefully pull that down.
5/ you will notice 2 little rollers and an arrow next to the right hand roller.
6/ place the cd tray carefully onto the rollers and align the arrows on the tray with th one on the ptinter.
7/ now your set for the software - open the CD Label Print software - click on new - click on image tab - and either image file or if it is from the scanner then select twain capture - if you select image file then either make your own image for the disc or select an appropriat file from the browes button.

I won't go on any more but just experiment, you will soon see how easy it is.

Happy Printing

Canon MP810-CD-R Tray loading-printing problem

I read on another site that you must wait until prompted on the screen to put the tray into position. Opening the inner door and loading the tray before asked to and then pressing OK was the key to fixing the problem on the MP830. 
It's the simple things that always get you into trouble, I guess.

Disc Feeding Problem

I am assuming you are using a PF-2 printer. If you are using a standard HP78 ink cartridge instead of the Microboards cartridge, the unit will only print approx 5 discs before it stops. The microboards cartridges have a security tag under the barcode label that is scanned by a magnetic reader on the left hand part of the unit. If you are careful, you can use a razor blade and remove the label from a microboards cartridge and tape it on the front of a HP ink and save yourself about $25 an ink cartridge...
