My Canon ip6000d just arrived today, and unfortunately, Canon USA Parts would not sell me a CD tray. What are the current options for buying a type B tray other than eBay?

I have some thin dvd tray cases. Are they the easiest way to make a tray for an ip5000. Also, can the trays of the epson r200 be modified?

I've not personaly tried the thin DVD cases... but those slim jewel cases seem to do the trick so long as you don't mind working with a razor blade. An Epson tray is however "ideal" except for the fact that the center hub doesn't clamp so well after a while, but one can live with that.

Is there a homemade tray d template I can use for a MP500? I wanna try to make one because eBay has pre-order tray d's.

Yes, I'll confirm that you'll not be able to get any parts from Canon USA.* I tried too and was told I'd have to order from a Canon service center overseas.* I guess they're on to us.* That's why I made my own.
Last week at MacWorld I was checking out one of the new Pixma models, and when I opened the inner cover a friendly Canon girl immediately knew what I was looking for, and told me it did not support CD label printing. Several other Canon people joined the conversation, they all knew about the modification and even told me I would have to buy the parts overseas, since Canon doesn't sell them in the USA, and even if they did, it would have been by mistake, and it would not happen again. So I told them I already ordered a bunch of trays and roller parts in Europe and sold them on eBay, and they didn't seem to have any problem with that at all.

Well thanks to the links on this forum, I purchased an ip6000d printer, popped out the cd print cover, plugged it in, did the service mod. Plugged in the USB cable, installed the US software.

Everything went great.

Made the cd template from the link posted here (somewhere), out of USPS priority boxes (perfect cardboard thickness). The template printed a little wide so narrowed it a little.

Popped in an inkjet printable cd-r, fired of NERO Label Designer, picke ip3000 for the cd, stuck the cd and template in the printer. and...

IT WORKED THE 1st time!

So all you people who have been having problems making the template I suggest USPS priority boxes.



btw the Drivers I installed were downloaded directly from the Canon US site. No registry mod or nothing as long as you do the Service hack FIRST.

I have exactly the problem - it behaves exactly as in the manual (measurements, orientation etc) until I hit Print, and then I get that annoying message.* I have updated CD Labelprint to 1.3 to no avail.* I would be surprised if Canon will do anything about it, which is a pity as otherwise it looks like a good application.SO, I am having to print using Word, with ink going all over the tray.*[img]/forums/images/emoticons/shakehead.gif[/img]..**.* W* It works but is not satisfacftory

Photo matt board works great for those having trouble finding the right cardboard to make a template. After glueing two matts together, the top matt, which is about the same thickness as a cd\dvd does a great job holding the disc in place.

What number in the UK would I call to order these things? I have someone over there that can order the parts, if I knew what number to call.
