Patent Number: 7,422,297

Title: Printer

Abstract: A tray (3) having a setting area (6) on which an optical disc (100) is settable moves between a print position where the optical disc (100) is printable and a setting/removing position where the optical disc (100) is settable. When the tray (3) is at the print position, a printer unit (35) prints characters, etc., on the optical disc (100). An aligning member (13) is provided over the tray (3) for aligning the position and direction of a print area (P) on the optical disc (100) where printing is to be performed. The aligning member (13) is movable between an aligning position where the aligning member (13) overlaps with a surface of the setting area (6) except for the print area on which the printer unit (35) prints and a retractive position spaced from the setting area (6). When the tray (3) is moved to the setting/removing position, the aligning member (13) moves to the retractive position. Thus, after the optical disc (100) is set on the setting area (6), the aligning member (13) is moved to the aligning position to thereby align the position and direction of the print area (P) on the optical disc (100).
