I have an Epson R265 and wish for the first time to use the cd printing tray to print image directly to the cd. I have downloaded cd from the cover section here but how do I then print the cd image directly to my cd without having to use labels any help would be appreciated.

Have you installed the software that came with the printer? If so then in programs you should see cd print, start it up then follow instructions.

What goes around comes around

I Was not having clear answer for your problem to fix. But i can say that printing the cd image directly to the cd with out using the label have some advantages like
-Low cost
-Convenience
-Reduce potential drive damage

Import the cd image do not drag and drop (it will only say it isn't the right sort of file)

When you import it, it won't be the right size, so just resize it (after you have altered the disc template to the discs you use or you will lose half the picture) Once that has been done, print, and it should be as you want it.

The standard disc size has the large middle, rather than the small hole we generally get now, so you much edit the size and save it, to save having to redo it everytime.

Unfortunately tho, you will have to resize every label you want to print on the disc unless you have done one and saved it. No getting around that hon sorry.

Hope that helps, any questions, don't hesitate to ask :)
