I have a new photosmart d7560 printer, which I bought specifically for printing on cd's and I can't get it to work on my MacBook Pro running Os x 10.6.1. When I use HP Create and try to save a CD file I get the error message: "The operation couldn’t be completed. (com.hp.StudioCreateError error 1.)" If I try to print without saving it will not print even thoughI have set up the d7560 cd tray, and selected printing on a cd.
Help! I have loaded the latest drivers several times.

One time I tried opening the "create" program directly and it would not work. Then I opened the "Studio" programand selected "create" from that and it worked...
Is anyone upset at the lack of assistant from HP? Or Apple? This is quite disappointing.

I found a YOUTUBE video that explains how to print on a CD/DVD using HP D7560; select, copy, and paste this link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AuDCTBo3cKs&feature
The man doing the demo in the video tells us to start by clicking on "Solution Center" which is suppose to have been installed to the desktop when HP software was installed. HA! I installed custom, then un-installed, then installed easy method, there is nothing on my Mac Tiger OS that comes up Solution Center, and I can't find such a program to download via Googling . He made it look very easy to design a printable media disc using templates. I guess I have a Mac problem. Hope this helps someone, it took me 24 hours to figure this out.
01. Save a folder named HP to your desktop, put a JPEG picture in this file. Doesn't matter, just any old JPEG. This is just until you get this procedure embedded in your brain.
02. Click on the "HP Photosmart Studio" (HPS) program that installed when you set up your HP D7560
03. Notice the icons at the top of the page, see the"Create" icon it is grey/dead. See the "Library" on the left of the HPS window just under the option icons.
04. Click on the desktop folder in the list of folders being offered under the Library.
05. Click on Desktop Folder, then click on the HP folder you just made, then click on the picture inside your HP folder. Look at the top of the project window, notice the icons are ALL active, waiting to serve you. "Create" came alive.
06. Click the "CREATE" icon at the top of the window
07. Notice the "Creative Projects Palette" has taken the place of the Library.
08. In the first section of the "Pallette", see the "Projects Controls" section, see "Project"and choose "CD/DVD Label", also realize the other option in that pull down menu is pages.
09. Now appearing on the right side of the window is a disc with the tiny lines around the edge and an inside circle.
10. In the 2nd section of the "Creative Projects Palette", see "Disc Controls". Select the Label type you want.
Tip: HP CD/DVD Tatto, prints backwards (I guess should you want to burn a disc on your T-shirt. :-P LightScribe (5 inch/120) has the largest hole in the middle of the disc. CD.DVD (5 inch/120 mm) has the middle size hole; depends on your blank printable media, just pick one.
11. To test the waters, see the "Project Controls" section, then choose "Insert Text".
12. Tip: Type in your texts, or copy your text from a word processing program with spell check and paste into the square text box. Continue until you have all the text you want to appear on your disc. Use as many text boxes you need for placement of your text.
12. High light the text you just typed. See the "Creative Controls" section on your left, click the "Content" option. Pick the font, color and design you want for your text that is currently high lighted. You have choices.
13. After you have saved your work, click "Done" at the bottom of the window to close your project.
14. Tip: if you didn't pick all the pictures you needed at the beginning of your project, click "Create" again. Clicking takes you from the project screen to the Library and back.
15. Tip: If you should fill up the disc with texts and decide to include background picture, move your texts boxes way off to the sides so the background picture can be behind your text. Click on each text box in the "Creative Controls" to move the box(es) forward, meaning the background is behind the text boxes and the text will show.
16. Tip: Perfect way to use all those dead CDs that didn't burn correctly, but still had a printable surface for practicing your art.
