OK and you installed that latest 64 bit driver correct? Unplug the printer from power for a few minutes

I have tried all the recommended suggestions with no success, when I follow the instructions another identical printer is installed but none of them let me print onto a cd, the same message saying the printer driver for cd printing is not installed and the cycle to obtain the said driver starts again

Expert:  Mike the Mac Medic replied 2 years ago.
Download the Epson EasyPrint software from the Drivers and Downloads page for your printer. (Make sure you note the file name and where you saved the file.)

Double-click the Epson EasyPrint file you downloaded and follow the on-screen instructions to install the software.

Restart your computer.

Place a CD or DVD in the printer’s CD/DVD tray and then insert the CD/DVD tray into the printer.

Open the EPSON Print CD software.

Design your CD/DVD or open a design you’ve saved.

Select Print from the File menu.

Make sure Epson Stylus Photo R300 is selected.

Select Tray 2.

Note: If Tray 2 is not selected, the CD design will print in the wrong position.

Click Properties.

Under Paper Options, select the following settings:

Source: Manual

Type: CD/DVD or CD/DVD Premium Surface

Size: A4

Click OK, to close the Properties window, then click OK to close the Printer Settings window.

Click OK to print.

Hi Mike,

I think I will start from scratch. ie:- install the printer using the original cd provided with the printer and progress through updates and downloads specifically for the R300. For some reason when I install a new printer as per instructions the printers is named as R300M which is totally different from the R300.I would like to thank you for all your advice and will rate your help highly.

Yours faithfully,
