Printing directly onto a CD or DVD
Follow the steps below to print on either size of CD or DVD.
Step one: Load the CD/DVD holder
CAUTION:Do not press the CD body against the CD tray at any time as it might scratch the CD.
Step two: Load the CD/DVD Tray
CAUTION:Before loading the media on the CD/DVD tray, ensure that the printer has about 10 cm (4 inch) of clearance behind it.
- The printer feeds the CD/DVD holder while printing on the media. The CD/DVD holder might protrude about 7.5 cm (3 inches) at the back of the printer.
Step three: Create the label
- Click Start and go to All Programs. Find Roxio and click Express Labeler.
- Select the images to print on the disc by clicking the left and right arrows beside Layout and Background.

- Make sure the HP PhotoSmart D5300 All-in-One is the selected printer.
- Click the Diagnostics button if you want to double check the printer driver settings.
- Make sure that the Paper Source is set to HP CD/DVD Tray.
- Under Paper Size, choose either CD/DVD 120mm or 80mm.
- If you are using HP brand CDs, set the Paper Type to HP Water Resistant CD/DVD.
- Click OK. Then click OK in the Print dialog box.
Step four: Remove the disc and the CD/DVD Holder
- Remove the CD/DVD holder from the tray.
- Close the tray.
- Remove the disc from the holder.
CAUTION:Do not touch the printed surface while removing the disc from the holder.
