Where to find "manual feed" setting

I'm using a new MacBook Pro with the Intel processor. When I try to print on CD/DVD I no longer have the manual feed option. I contacted Epson and followed the directions about resetting the printer, empty the trash, restart, add printer etc. but am unable to find where I select media as DVD or manual feed. It should be in the page set-up under "Format for:" Any help?

Re: Where to find "manual feed" setting

Try a new copy of your install disc, obtainable from Epson or try using a registry cleaner. You may have picked up a spyware that has corrupeted registry settings for your printer, which will not correct by just reinstalling. Make sure you have the correct drivers and updates for your printer and for your op system.

MacBook Pro Epson Print Driver Dilemma

your problem is about profiles. The gutenprint is the only way to print from intel to r1800, but this driver don't use the same ICC profiles. You have to use one of three solutions below:
1 the best, you have a profile calibrating device, you make a profile of your couple ink-paper and you convert your document into this ICC profile.
2 you convert your picture into your software in one of the Epson generic profiles (hey probably still are on your computer) and you print whithout color managment
3 (awful) you anticipate the color distorsion and you tune your picture to be bad on the screen but pretty good on paper.

Mac Intel OX 10.5.5 drivers not loading and working

I had this same problem with my MacBook Pro Intel notebook running the latest Mac OS. I went to the OKI web site ( ) and downloaded the OKI C5000 GDI Intel driver. I followed the install instructions to load the driver. Next, I went to system preferences and selected printers. Then I selected the + button under printers. My current printers showed up on the list. I then selected "More Printers" and the other drivers loaded on my Mac were listed. One option was OKI USB. I selected this option THEN I plugged my USB cable from the OKI into my Notebook. The computer recognized the printer. I hit Save and I proceeded to print my first document. FYI: I spent several hours trying to get this thing to work yesterday with the USB cable already plugged in. I don't know why it would not work. This worked for me. Good luck.

Epson R300 CD/DVD Tray ERROR message with Leopard any Solutions?

One of the guys on this site said read the manual over and over again, and he was right.
You must go to system preferences and choose print and fax. Set the default media to A4. Then in the Print CD program when you hit print your will see fifth line down Epson Print CD on offer. Hit the arrows on the right and choose print settings from the drop down menu and then media type and choose CD / DVD. All should then work. It does on mine.
Regards and best wishes. David

Unable to print on DVD/CD

The latest R800 driver for Windows
(which is probably required for Vista as well as XP) has a hardware interface problem.

When you try to print on a CD, the power button should blink slowly and the paper feed button should turn red until the media (CD) is readied by holding the paper feed button down for a second. However, with the driver above, the paper feed button instead blinks very fast (the printer is being "probed" by the PC in a tight loop I would guess) and so the CD cannot be readied.

The previous version of the driver,
does not have this problem. But I doubt it will work under Vista.
If you would like this driver e-mailed to you, send me an e-mail to my "junkmail" account asking for it (include this documentation so I know what you want) and I will send it.
My junkmail account is jim3 underline porter6 at fastmail dot fm

Cd tray not feeding

I had the same problem. My printer was sitting too far back in the cabinet and the cd tray was hitting the back wall when it was pulling it throuh. I moved the printer forward and the obstruction in the back was no longer an issue. It started printing all cd's just fine.
