I am trying to print directly onto disk on Cannon ip4300,
but on installing of the software I get an error message
about the middle tray is open.
The middle tray has to be open to hold the CD in the F tray.
What is the solution.
The printer prints as normal on paper.
but not on CD's using the F tray.
The software alludes to changing options
that are not presented on the page setup?

The Error 311 indicates a communication error between the Mac and the printer. If you upgraded the Mac from Leopard to Snow Leopard, there could be older driver files for the iP4300 that are conflicting with the new driver. Therefore I would start your repair by trashing all of the Canon files.
The first step is to disconnect the USB cable between the printer and the Mac.
The next step is to delete the current printer queue for the iP4300. Open Print & Fax, select the iP4300 in the list and click the minus ( - ) button to remove the queue. You can now exit Print & Fax.
The third step is to remove the Canon files. These are located in HD > Library > Printer > Canon > BJPrinter. Select all the files inside this folder and trash them. Then empty the Trash and restart the Mac.
With the Mac restarted, you can now run the installer for the 10.6 driver you downloaded from the Canon web site. Ensure this driver is version 10.26.0.0.
Once the driver has been installed you can connect the iP4300 USB cable to the Mac again and open Print & Fax. If the install has worked, the printer should automatically appear in the Printers list (note that this can take several seconds). If the printer does not appear, click + to add and select the Default view. The iP4300 should appear in this view. Select it and click Add. You may get a prompt stating the printer is already installed. If so, cancel this install and try printing with the new iP4300 queue.
If the error message still occurs, then I would try another USB cable. They have been known to cause the 311 error.
The tray is for the DVD or CD itself, not for a label. The printer prints directly on the CD or DVD, you must use ink jet compatible blank disks, the white ones with no printing. You don't need a tray to print the label.
your printer does not support CD label orinting. though you can still print CD labels but with some softwares. there are HP printers that prints CD labels. Check them out.

These printers comes with a special software that enables them print on CD labels. Also try to get their softwares and see if you can interface them with your own printer and them print. Else you may have to get one of these printers that support CD labelling. Cheers!
You need to install (or download then install) the Easy-print toolbox software. It should be available on the Canon website. When you run it, it shows options for printing photos and cds. Click the cd button and follow the instructions. (You just choose a picture, photo, text etc. and position it using the cd displayed on the screen. Then insert the cd into the special holder, push it in some of the way, then allof the way when it says to.)
Ps - it's best to download the latest of everything (all software, drivers etc.) for your printer to make sure you have the most up-to-date versions.
I had this eror. It was caused by indexing error left to right.Would print some then cancel after starting to make clunking and left to right error gets to large.(white edge up the side of full page print). There is a toothed print head carriage drive belt and a clear indexing strip above the heavily white greased bar behind print head carriage. If this clear indexing strip gets grease or anything else on it the print head cannot index. With print head at full right position,power off, I carefully wiped the clear strip by pinching between clean dry fingers and wiping up and down the strip a few times,maybe use cotton wool buds and IPA or methalated spirit if you can't get your fingers in there without breaking the strip. then with power on print head in change cartridge position,push carriage to far left and wipe right side of clear strip.I pushed carriage full left to right a few times,Then ran print head alignment.Fixed without taking apart.
