No option to print to cd/dvd on a mac?

I'm using an apple mac. When I go to print something I go into the print settings on the drop down menu. There are a list of media types such as gloosy paper etc but cd/dvd and cd/dvd premium surface are light grey i.e not selectable. I did not have this problem with my old r200. Any ideas?

I can'tu nlock my MacBook Pro model number A1286

I went to work on an answer for you. I had to go through the steps myself rather than trusting my memory. The problem is that he software on the install disc did something to my drive so my Mac wouldn't boot*. So this is a bit more complex than I thought it would be. Here's the deal: prior to OS X version 10.7 Lion, it's a simple matter of starting your machine with the DVD called Mac OS X Install DVD.

***But WARNING:** If you have 10.7 or later installed on your Mac, resetting the password using the 10.6 Snow Leopard DVD may damage the directory or volume structure of your hard drive. This is damage to the data stored magnetically on the drive, not actual damage to the computer. Check your OS X version by clicking the Apple menu (upper left) and clicking "About This Mac" in the menu that drops down.

If you're not sure what version of OS X is installed on your machine, I'd suggest taking it to an Apple Store near you. Hopefully, there is an Apple Store near you. Before you go, sign up for an appointment with a "Genius" at your local Apple Store. Search Google for "sign up Genius Apple Store" or go to

* I fixed my hard drive with DiskWarrior. Expensive, but highly recommended drive repair software.

Steps to reset password (ONLY for machines running 10.6 or earlier):

If you still have your system disks that came with your Mac, this will be pretty straightforward. Note: I go into detail because I don't know what you know. I'm not trying to insult your intelligence. :)

1) Slide the first system disc, the "Mac OS X Install Disc, gently into your disc slot (careful there isn't disc in there already).
2) Turn on Mac while holding down C key. Keep holding C key at least 30 seconds.
3) The first screen has you select your language. Click the arrow in blue circle to continue.4) The next screen it stops at says "Install Mac OS X" at top. **Do not** click the Continue button.
5) Instead, click the "Utilities" menu at very top of screen.
6) In the menu that drops down, click "Reset Password..."
7) In this, the last screen, Click your Mac's hard drive at top (hint: it's **not** the one that looks like a CD).
8) Under "Select the user account" make sure it says your main account. If not click to select your user name on the machine.
9) Under "Enter a new password for this user" click in the white and type a new password. It should be at least 9 characters long and contain at least one capital letter somewhere in it, and it should include a number somewhere, such as your lucky number. Something that's not too difficult to type. Enter the new password again in the box below that.
10) Click the "Save" button. Wait until it's done!! Turn off your Mac by holding down the power button until it turns off.
11) Turn on your Mac as you would normally. Type in your shiny new password when asked.

Critical: Write down password and put it in your nightstand or something. Memorize it. You'll need to know it. (Note: this is *not* the same as your AppleID password if you have one.)

Good Luck! I hope this helps.

I only wan to know how to enter in bios menu of setup menu on a macbook pro

I stand to be corrected but...I'm pretty sure there is no bios on the Macbook does however use Extensible Firmware Interface (EFI).
All settings and changes can be done through the Mac OSx system. If you need repair options or other tools you can insert the Mac OSx install disk in the disk drive and boot holding down the "C" key to boot from CD or DVD.

Hope this answers your question......

I have a hp deskjet 5650 i want to print a document in color, but it only prints in grayscale. how do i change it to color? thanks

In the print menu (Command P), there is a drop-down menu toward the bottom of the screen.
One of the options is Quality & Media. Under this option, make sure that greyscale is not selected.
I hope that works for you!

I just installed a new color cartridge for an HP 5650 Deskjet printer but it only prints in black. I'm printing from a MacBook, OS 10.6.6

Hi, Try printing whatever you were wanting to print but click the drop down arrow right next to the printer selection tab. Then you should see a drop down menu about halfway down the menu, click it and select print settings. You should see another drop down menu called color, just click it and change it from grayscale to color.
Hope this helps, Justin

How can I change the setting from grayscale so that it will now print in color?

Go to print as per normal under the drop down box beneath the number of pages. In firefox the drop down box would be firefox and then in the drop down menu select Paper Type/Quality then change the color from grayscale to whatever color options come up. Hope this helps.

Whenever you send a file to print from a program a small window shows up. If it shows only
Printer: Drop down menu ARROW Presets: Drop down menu Some buttons at the bottom
then click on the ARROW pointing down for more options. That will show more info, including a drop down menu that will allow you to change page settings, printing settings, etc. For example, if you want to change the printing quality, select "Paper Type/Quality" from that drop down menu and new options will show up allowing you to change the settings of the printer.

Epson R300 CD/DVD Tray ERROR message with Leopard any Solutions?

One of the guys on this site said read the manual over and over again, and he was right.
You must go to system preferences and choose print and fax. Set the default media to A4. Then in the Print CD program when you hit print your will see fifth line down Epson Print CD on offer. Hit the arrows on the right and choose print settings from the drop down menu and then media type and choose CD / DVD. All should then work. It does on mine.
Regards and best wishes. David
