Hello,

1) buy a printer with cd/dvd print tray - like canon 4500, it prints on printable dvd only (printable dvd's have a special white coat to absorb the ink).

2) buy a dvd burner that supports lightscribe like asus drw-1814bl (it prints black only on special coated "lightscribe dvd's"

3) NOT RECOMENDED but also possible, buy cd/dvd labels print on any printer and adhere to cd/dvd, usually over time the glue will destroy cd's and trapped air will make bubbles when the cd/dvd is hot (air expands in hot environment).

Printing directly onto CDs


Hello,

I'm afraid that is not possible with the printer. You an do cd/dvd labels but you can't print directly onto a cd.

You would need a CD/DVD burner with a Light Scribe capability. You also need special CD/DVD's to use Light Scribe.

Thanks for using Fixya.

PS. Just for additional info, here is a link to support for your printer:

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.

How do i inkjet on to a cd


That's not really a function of the program as much as a physical issue with the printer. If the printer doesn't come with a cdrom caddy specifically for printing on CDs, then it can't do it. From what I can tell from the specifications on the EasyShare 5500, there is no such accessory available for it. Sorry!
Please rate this answer if you feel it has helped you!!

Canon pixma 4500


HI

FIRST YOU HAVE TO MAKE SURE YOU HAVE PURCHASED THE CORRECT WHIT PRINTABLE DISKS.
YOUR PRINTER WOULD HAVE CAME WITH THE NECESSARY SFTWARE CALLED CD PRINT.
OPEN THE PROGRAM AND FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS TO CREATE THE IMMAGE ON THE CD/DVD.
YOU WILL BE WORKING WITH AN IMAGE OF A BLANK WHITE DISK, AND WHAT EVER YOU DO THERE WILL BE PRINTED ON YOUR REAL DISK.
YOUR CANNON PRINTER WILL HAVE AN OPENING IN FRONT WHERE YOU WILL HAVE TO INSERT THE DISK WITH THE PROVIDED TRAY ( A BLACK RECTANGLE WHICH THE CD/DVD WILL FIT ON).
FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS ON THE PC AND YOU CANNOT GO WRONG

Epson stylus r1800 problem with printing on cd/dvd


Try this :

Disconnect the printer from the computer.
Turn it off & make sure the CD/DVD tray is closed then turn it back on.

***

Here's generic instruction for you:

If you are receiving an error pertaining to the CD TRAY NOT BEING INSERTED CORRECTLY, please do the following:

Recommendations:
-Don't force the CD/DVD tray into the printer.
-Make sure your printer is powered on, and the output tray is in the upper position.
-Please ensure there is at least 3 inches of space behind the printer, or the CD tray may eject.

Included, are the correct CD/DVD loading instructions. Please follow the instructions below:

CD/DVD LOADING:
1. Ensure the printer is powered on. Remove any paper from the sheet feeder.
2. Push in the paper support extension on the printer, and close the paper support.
3. Push in the output tray extensions, but leave the tray open.
4. Lift the output tray. Place one hand on the top of the printer, and pull up on the output tray until it stops. Lay the tray down in the upper position.
5. Place the CD or DVD into the CD TRAY with the white (or printable) side facing up. Note: To print on small 8cm CDs, please place the small CD ring on the tray first, then place the CD inside the ring.
6. Slide the tray into the tray guides located in the output tray. Push in the guide until the arrow on the tray matches up to the arrow on the tray guide.
7. Press the PAPER button to load the CD/DVD into the printing position. The CD is correctly loaded when the printer's POWER button stops flashing.

General tips for CD and DVD printing:
-Burn data/video/images onto CDs or DVDs before attempting to print on them.
-Do not use thermal-printable or regular CDs or DVDs in the printer.
-Moisture or fingerprints on the printable surface of the CD may cause marks or smearing to appear after printing.
-All printable inkjet media is different. Some surfaces will absorb ink better than others. If output appears banded, faded, or streaky, print a Nozzle Check pattern to confirm that all colors of ink are printing completely. If the ink does not completely dry or smears after 24 hours curing time, you may need to use the Epson Print CD tools to adjust (lower) the print density.
-The only supported resolution for CD/DVD printing is 1440 dpi (aka "Photo")
-Borderless printing and printing on the "inner circle" (plastic around central hole) of CDs is not supported.
-Do not use the "print preview" feature provided by the Epson printer driver as it will only show the image on a blank field and does not offer a clear indicator of where the image will print.
-The Epson Print CD software works best with JPG images and may not import some TIFF images.
