Printing to CD/DVD

I have an HP D5360 printer ... althought there are quite a few other printers
that could be affected. This printer has a tray in which a printable CD/DVD
can be loaded to print to the label. The problem that I'm having is finding a
way in Hardy to print to this tray.
Quite a bit of software allows me to print to this tray (OpenOffice, for
example). The problem is getting something that is reasonably easy to create
the label in, followed by a print. The diameters of both the Cd and the Hole
in the middle need to be visible - which appears to rule out OpenOffice.
GLabels does this part very well ... but has no way to print to this tray.
HPLIP makes the tray accessible, but GLabels doesn't appear to take their
printer configuration from the driver.
I've tried printing to a PDF ... but KPDF doesn't allow printing to this tray
Does anyone have any suggestions
