Question about HP Photosmart D5160 InkJet Printer
I spent a week figuring this answer out. First Do not use the supplied software from HP for this, unless simple text is okay for you. I personally found the software to try to do everything, but nothing well. If you have even a modest image application: Gimp, Photoshop, etc, create a new image at 4.5 inches x 4.5 inches. Set the ppi to 150 at least, 300 for High Quality and create you 'label' there, then go to print.
1. in print dialog box choose 'Preferences'
2. then choose 'printing shortcuts'
3. then choose 'print on CD/DVD' (DVD icon)
(confirm in papersize on right that you are printing on a cd/dvd)
4Then pull down your CD/DVD tray flap on the HP printer and load up a CD to print on. Align it to the arrows, then press print.
As long as the image is 4.5" x 4.5" it will fill the DVD perfectly --especially if you download a 'Mask' template from any printer --which you could google to find one, but it is just to give you an Idea of your 'safe print' zones, and will really come in handy for high quality labels-- don't for get to turn off that 'mask' just before saving--if it's black, or better yet, make it white, then when you save the final image it will create a beautiful white circular edge on the image so that you can better preview and so that you won't waste ink!

SOURCE: Cannot remember how to load
keep the printer ON.then open the flap on the front side.there is a small gap made in the flap to get it opened.as u open the flap the cartridges will automatically move and come in the position where u can remove the cartridges.just pull the cartridge to the dwn side near to you and it will come out.in the same way insert the new cartridge.
