HI, I've just bought a canon pixma5450 printer. I know I can print a cd by scanning one, but can I print one from my own designs, from photoshop?

Hi, Thank you for asking that question! My name is XXXXX XXXXX will be assisting you today.
I am sorry you are having that issue with your Pixma 5450.

A little more information please:

When you say that you tried "the instructions that came with the printer", what were the instructions and what happened?
Did you get an error message? What message?

I will be looking forward to your reply so I may help you.
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

there were no instructions on how to do it. there are instructions on how to scan a cd and then print directly onto a printable cd, but no instructions on how to print from my own design from 3rd party software and if I try to do it via photoshop, it refuses to print.

Thank you for the update, Paul.

Try this: From Photoshop, save your design to the desktop. Then, right click on the icon created and click on "Print". When the program is engaged, make sure you choose, if not the default, color or black and white, size and orientation of the print, how many pages, and the quality of the print, The design should print.

Please let me know if you need more information.
