USA Canon iP4500 Without CD Tray?

I’ve been looking at CD/DVD printable inkjet printers and have read numerous places that the USA Canon iP4500 does not come with the CD/DVD tray to print directly to the disc. Can anyone confirm this? I’ve seen these comments on Amazon and other user opinion sections of various websites. It appears that Canon is selling a different version of this printer in Europe with the same model number.

No Canon printers sold in the USA come with CD/DVD trays. Something to do with a patent issue I believe. You can get tray kits off of ebay to convert the USA printers to enable disc printing.

You also need to modify the printer firmware settings to enable the disc print functions. Not difficult to do. If you buy a tray from a reputable supplier, the instructions will be included.

This works for me.
