Hi, I have an HP Photosmart 7200 and an HP Photosmart 7900 and I just recently bought some dvds that are inkjet printable.  Is there anyway that I can get either one of my printers to print onto the dvds?  Is it like a tray I buy or what?

    As far as I'm aware, neither of those printers can feed a CD, so you'll need to print on labels.

    With either printer you will need to buy CD lables and print onto them, then stick them onto the CD, alternatively purchase anothewr printer that will do the job for you like the or this one or here is another one

    No, you can't do it.  HP does not currently (and has never, as far as I know) make a printer that can print on optical media.  Epson does make such printers (quite a few, but not all by any means), and I think that Canon might have made one or two.  But HP has never embraced this, you have to use labels.
