I can't print direct to CD with my Canon printer!

Note to U.S. customers: Canon printers sold in the U.S. do not have a direct-to-CD printing option.

First, open up CD/DVD Label Maker and click on the Print button. Check that "Disc Tray" is selected as the Paper-Bin option. There may be a catch with some Canon printers, however: the Canon drivers won't list the Disc Tray as an available paper bin until you've clicked the Properties button on the Print dialog and changed the Media Type to one of the Printable Disc options. Once you've done that, the Canon drivers will list the Disc Tray among the paper bin options -- in fact, it'll be the only option -- and you should be able to print.

Please note that starting in version 2.49, Acoustica CD/DVD Label Maker automatically sets the Canon tray and media type for you, so you won't need to take the above steps. If you"ve got a pre-2.49 version of the CD Label Maker, you should be able to make this problem disappear just by downloading and installng the latest version of Acoustica CD/DVD Label Maker.

If you've got version 2.49 or higher and you're getting this problem, you might have disabled the auto-tray setting option. To make sure it"s on, select the "Preferences" option from the File menu, go to the "Miscellaneous" page in the Preferences dialog, and make sure the "Don't auto-set paper bin or media type" box is not checked.
