How do I print onto a CD with the Canon Pixma MG5220?

Asked by XOIIO (18328points) December 26th, 2010

I just got the Canon Pixma MG5220 for christmas is a great machine and am wondering, where do I put the CD in to print on it? There is a little thing you can pull down when the paper tray is down, and there is a slot, it that it?

I am also wondering, I heard it doesn’t have a transperancy adapter, what does that do exactly?

Have you tried reading the instructions? Or looking on canons website?

The intructions and website don’t have much help.

So I don’t think you print onto a cd. You print onto sticky paper that you then put onto the CD. These will work.

It was advertised that you can print onto the dvd’s and cd’s that have the labels, i guess I’ll have to scour the manual again.

@XOIIO If it could do that – print directly onto dvds and cds – that would be a major feature and it would be listed on the website.

Well It was advertised in the store, the manual in the box and on my pc didn’t show the slot location so I’n still looking.

@XOIIO At the moment, the only home printer that can print directly onto cds is the Epson Stylus Photo R800.

Well I checked and many canon printers can print CD’s with an attachment, and mine has a CD labeller program that has printable disc as the default. It looks like I need to buy an adapter for it.

Yup, there are plenty of different adapters on ebay, I jsut need to figure out which kind I need.

Just found the CD tray in the box! WOOT

Hi I have a canon pixma mg5220 and am trying to print onto a printable cd. i have finally found the slot where the cd tray goes. but everytime i press ‘print’ the printer says ‘the printers inner cover is open. close the cover ad press OK’. Please help. there is nothing in the manual about this.

@ellymag not sure, try opening everything up then closing it, and print on a piece of paper, then tr a CD
