This is a bug in the C5280 software.

The one thing that worked for me was purchasing and downloading SureThing Disc Labeler at www.surething.com. Apparently it accesses the printer directly, bypassing the faulty driver.

Yes, it costs $30, but it was worth it to me to end hours of frustration. Also, you can download a 15-day trial version for free.

When you place the CD, you need to close the CD tray by pressing the button below the CD tray. Click on Start on the screen and go to my computers and see if you are able to see the CD. if you are on the net, we can chat online and i can guide you.

Check if the correct paper size is selected according to the letter size that you are trying to print,select custom size and give the specifications of the paper manually.
Open Solution center software on your PC, click settings>Printer settings, in the feature tab you have an option named Paper type, select plain paper and then click ok and close window and Solution center and try to print.

CANT PRINT LABEL ON CD


I have tried to print cd labels on two separate HP C5280 printers, with no luck. Printer keeps giving me an error message, cd/dvd tray is open. Printer just doesn't recognize the cd holder. I have uninstalled and installed the HP driver, spoke to the tech support, followed their instructions on chat, phone and you-tube, wasted so many labels, papers and the ink, complained to HP, all waste of time, money and energy. Please don't buy this product.
