Please follow these steps:
1.
Turn your printer on. Most power buttons are located on the top of the printer. Press and hold down the button until its LED light turns green.
2.
Choose the image or text you desire to print onto the CD. On your computer, open the image or text you desire to print. images should be opened by clicking on your computer's "Start" icon and selecting the "Pictures" tab folder within the Start menu. When the Pictures folder opens, click on the image you desire to print onto the CD to enlarge it. If you are planning to print text onto the CD, open the text in Microsoft Word or any other desktop publishing program you may have on your computer.
3.
Insert the CD into the printer. Press the "Eject" button that can be found on your CD printing enabled printer. A CD tray will open automatically. Place the CD into the tray print side up. Close the CD tray. The printer will begin working to detect the CD. Once the CD is detected, your printer's LED light will either flash green or another indication color.
4.
Print the image or text onto the CD. For image printing, click on the enlarged image's tab that will be on your computer's taskbar. You will see a horizontal row of action icons below the image. Click on the thumbnail image of a printer to print the image onto the disc. For text printing, simply click on the "File" action on the navigation menu in your desktop publishing document. Click "Print" within the "File" drop down menu. The image or text will be sent to the printer once you choose the "Print" action.
5 .
Remove the CD from the printing tray. The CD will be fed through the printer during the printing process. Once the process is complete, the CD will come through the bottom of the printing tray. Take the CD from the tray when it reaches the bottom.
The above mentioned steps must help you. In case of any difficulty please revert back.

    for Inkjet printers follow these steps:
    1.
    Find a printer that prints directly on a CD; this is becoming a popular feature and these printers are getting more affordable.

    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.
    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.
    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.
    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.
    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.
    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.
    Design your label. Your printer will have come with label designing software. Take some time. Make it pretty.

    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.
    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.

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:

Printing Direct to CD using Roxio EMC10 and HP All in One C5280


Solved by trial and error.
I went through every type of paper and printer combination listed in the Printer Preferences and eventually found a system compatible with Roxio EMC 10.
This by setting "Commercial Paper" and Neato 3-Disc Paper.
Whilst this is probably the incorrect way to do it, it has solved the problem and I can now print directly onto CD via my HP C5280 All in One Printer.

Tip. If you set Print preview before printing you can determine what the finished article will look like without having to wast numerous Discs trying.

Printing onto printable cd


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.

Good luck

Trying to print onto cd-r


I got this model for Xmas & spent over 2 hours with the same problem. How can you close inner tray when you're only supposed to push the tray half way in for printing onto disc? It doesn't make sense, it's a contradiction and the manual doesn't give any explanation, An absolute piece of Junk! It's going to be 'dumped' back to the retailer tomorrow! I've never had such crap!
