I just purchased EMC10, and have downloaded all updates and patches available. I also purchased an HP D5360 Photosmart. The D5360 came with a CD/DVD drawer to allow direct printing onto printable disks. This printer also came with an older copy of Express Labeler v3. V3 locks up a lot under my XP Pro SP3 and only works about 50% of the time. It also is very limited as to what I can print onto the disks. So, Ii purchased EMC10 which includes a full copy of Label Creator v10.
Problem: In Label Creator v10 under File/Print, under Printer; I see my HP Photosmart D5360 listed “HP Photosmart D5300 series", and after selecting it, I can also go into Properties and select “Print on CD/DVD" and make other selections. But, the problem is; under Media I only see "standard paper", "commercial paper", and "print to disk". I've tried all choices but do not see any options to print directly to CD/DVD disks. No mater what I choose, it only allows me to print to CD/DVD paper labels, not to printable disks.
I'm currently sitting in front of Roxio Label Creator v10. I have tried other's suggestions but still not working. Just before I press "Ok" to start the print, I still see "Media" "Standard Paper", and "Paper type" with "Letter....". When do these settings get changed?
Now, when I continue following the steps above, I'm instructed to press "Ok" to start my print, but this is what comes up:
"To ensure the printer aligns properly, we recommend to calibrate HP Photosmart D5300 series printer." "Do you wish to proceed now? If you prefer to do it later, you can select the Calibrate option in Print dialog." "Ok", "Cancel".
I trided both, printing an alignment page and not printing one. However, it will only print to "Plain paper," and will not even try to print to my printable CD disk, and gives me an error to insert "Plain paper".... If I try "Cancel," it dumps me out. Apparently it really wants this allignment. So.... I go with the whole allignment thing following the instructions it gives closely, keep in mind that its always having me insert "Plain paper", no printable CDs yet requested. I tried once to force it to use a printable CD for this alignment thing, but it refuses to print to printable CDs, only paper.
Now that I'm all done, it tells me to: "Please load Generic (plain paper) for disk (1 sheets) into the printer." "Click ok when you are ready." "ok" or "cancel" If I click "ok", yep; my CD creation gets printed onto plain paper.... If I go ahead and ignore their instructions to insert Plain Paper and I insert my printable CD disk, and click "ok", nothing prints out and my HP 5360 gives me a Pop-Up; warning me that my CC/DVD print drawer is open and to close it. So, I remove my CD and close the drawer and the project gets printed out onto a blank piece of paper.
How do I print directly onto printable CDs or DVDs with my HP Photosmart D5360?
p.s. Please-please lets stay on topic, I really want to fix this, thanks!
