    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.

    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

    Cheers
