Thank you, RBF.* This is good, but bad, news.* Helpful nonetheless.* Are you sure?* Has *ANYONE* been successful with this on their i960?* At least now I can give up my fruitless quest, sleep soundly, and continue to write on my DVD's with magic marker.* Oh well.

i am 100% sure, just got myself a cheap ip4000, and watched how it worked

i has the same sensor on the front rollers under the metal clip, but a few inches from there, there is a switch that lets the printer know if the tray has been opened or closed, in the i960 case it would be the feed tray being inserted or removed

Thanks RBF - would you be able to post a quick photo of the sensor/metal clip assembly from the ip4000? I may be able to obtain this sensor, and would be willing to hack my i860/i865 as an experiment, so this issue may not yet be completely cold. Thanks in advance!

i will open the printer and take some pics tonight

just a FYI, you will need to solder a connection on the i860/i960 main board to hook up the connector, you can see the spot for it. i tried doing that too, and i killed the board

The good news is that I have found and won a set of attachments (all 3 CD-R pieces) from ebay UK.They should be arriving in the next two weeks. The bad news is that if rbf351knows what he is talking about, I may need to modify my printer to make up fora missing sensor. I'll keep you all posted.

Okay, so the Royal Post took much longer than I expected. I have all three pieces in my possession--and the verdict is...

my i960/i965 will not print onto CD's even though I have the tray guide and tray installed. Looking back at the German article, it looks like this guy had the same problem so this weekend I'll be opening up the unit to see if there is some obvious place to wire in an external switch.

I'll keep you all posted.
