FOr whatever reason canon printers in the US won't print to CDs. Some legal issue I hear.

Anyway, go into the printer's setup and change the country to australia or UK. Then reinstall canon's drivers on your computer picking that same country. Done.

Now you'll need the tray - ebay sellers have them all, there are different ones for different printers.

Then you'll have to 'modify' your printer - remove some cover that blocks the CD feed door.

Done.

Of course you'll need some kind of software for printing the CDs..I got accoustica cheap.

looks like you need tray E
