Epson R300 CD printer

Hi folks , my first post!

I have an R300 printer ( this is not a networked printer and is a direct connection using USB )
Now under Win XP it printed CD's using the built in tray and the epson software with no problems what so ever.:cool:
I recently upgraded to Win 7 x86 Ultimate and Windows loaded a driver for the printer. This driver would not print CD's as in days of old ( all other functions are OK ) so I downloaded the latest CD printer driver software from Epson for WIN 7...... but still no luck. When I try to use it it tells me that " the driver for this function is not loaded" (not the exact words but that is what it means) :confused:

Has anyone any idea what might be going wrong??

Look forward to any help as I print a fair number of CD / DVD labels

Printer Driver

I had same problem with a new hp printer.
I contacted hp support,they downloaded the correct driver,that didnt come with printer disc.,from there end.
No charge,I have a 1yr., warranty.

Thanks Jimmy,

Have sent email to Epson and am still awaiting reply, (have found in the past that forum members are a good source of help on items like this!)

Got reply from Epson today and to use print direct to CD on the R300 do the following;

1. Open Print CD.
2. Select File > Print.
3. Select 'Manual Print'.
4. Select EPSON Stylus Photo R300(M) (from the drop down list).
5. Select 'Properties'.
6. Set 'Source' to Manual.
7. Set 'Type' to CD/DVD.
8. Click OK and Click OK again for the CD to Print.

Tried it and it works perfectly:D
