Modify some Canon printers to enable CD/DVD printing
Authored by: Makosuke on Jan 22, '10 06:28:05PM

This really is quite easy to do, and SO worth it--I've modified an older IP4200 and a 9000Pro in a few minutes, both of which worked perfectly (and you can download the OSX software to print discs free from Canon's non-US website, which is functional if rather ugly in terms of interface).

I bought a tray off eBay for the 9000, but I managed to successfully make a crude but fully functional one with an old DVD case (it's the right thickness and size for the base, and it's even black), some foil, a box cutter, and tape. So long as the holes are in about the right place it worked fine after a bit of calibration in the software (it lets you offset prints in tiny increments).

Nothing to be afraid of, I just wish my new multifunction series printer had that feature available.
