I can't figure out how to print directly to a DVD from Photoshop.
I can print with no problem from the Easy Photoprint app, I send the job and after a while the yellow light starts blinking like it needs paper. So I insert the disk tray and press the feed button and it prints no problem.
However, when I print from Photoshop, I select "Disk tray K" as the paper size, send the job, and the light starts blinking, just like before. But when I press the feed button, it stops for a couple seconds and then starts blinking again.
I'm having to save the file as a .jpg and bring it into Easy Photoprint, which is a real pain. Is there some trick to getting DVDs printed directly in Photoshop?

I have not tried to print from PS to a DVD, yet, but one thing, you should have the disk holder tray already installed in the Pro-100 before. Not after you send the job from PS.
Remember, PS does not care. or know, what you are printing to, it just sends the file. The printer needs to know what you want to print to and if you didn't have the DVD tray loaded first, it likely thinks you are using normal printing.

"you should have the disk holder tray already installed"
The user's manual specifically warns you not to do this: "Do not attach the disc tray until the message asking you to load the printable disc is displayed. Doing so can damage the printer."

There will be no message to load the disk tray from PS. That is why I suggested he stay with the free included software.
I suspect that warning is to not try and load the disk tray while the printer is readying itself for printing.
As this is the first statement in the manual;
Placing a Printable Disc
To print onto a printable disc, place it on the disc tray supplied with the printer, then insert it into the printer.
My quote was, "Not after you send the job from PS." I have not tried to print a DVD from PS but I have done many from Easy Photo Print EX. It may not even be possible.
However, you cited a good point, better to be cautious.

Unfortunately, we can only advise that disks are printed in our own software.
Before printing, please ensure that the 'Printable Disk' media type option has been selected in the Quick Setup tab (Windows) or Quality and Media section of the Print menu (Mac). This may allow you to print the disk from Photoshop.
If you continue to have difficulties, we would have to advise that you continue using Easy PhotoPrint. I apologize for this inconvenience.
