Printing On Cd's

Question

I tried using labelmaker and the set-up goes well. When the printer tries to print an error occurs demanding that the CD tray be removed and then it prints correctly on paper. The location on the paper is not correct for the CD or any labels I have.

I would recommend using the cd labeling software that came with your printer, seeing as how it is a cd printer. The roxio label creator probably won't work with your particular printer in cd print mode, as the printer uses its own proprietary software for that purpose. If you want to use roxio label creator you will probably have to use CD labels made for that purpose, which would defeat the purpose of having a CD printer, I think. Michael.

Hi

Click on the calibrate button if you have'nt already done so to calibrate your printer just follow the prompts.

 

On the print screen select commercial paper from the drop down list. Then click on the next box down and scroll down the the labels your using.

Hi, I had the same problem with my Epson R 300, I found setting the printer to:

Manual feed

CD/DVD

Best Photo

A4 paper

and the roxio at Print to disc to work just fine.

Good Luck

Ian

Which is it - paper or plastic?

 

The title of your post talks about printing directly on cd but the text talks about printing on paper. That may be why you are getting answers that don't make sense.

 

Go to page set up and select "print to disc". Select the printer you have. If that doesn't work, you may not have installed all the drivers when you installed the printer.

I've noticed the problem, and it's quite simple. Although the manual config works, if you'll watch the printer box that pops up and disappears it's defaulting to plain paper and not cd/dvd printable media. Is this normal? who knows but it does tout the ability to print to cd, it doesn't without completely configuring the printer before hand.
