Question about Epson Stylus Photo R300 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Can't get r300 to work with new iMac w/snow leopard despite downloading newest Mac drivers from Epson. Printer prints but I have no options, paper type, quality, color adjustments etc., only paper size and orientation. It will print draft copies. Do I need to install the original software first, then the updated drivers or is there a particular sequence I should follow?

I hate to say this but I doubt very much if you will find that the option to get those advanced features will ever be available.

Epson and all other hardware vendors will provide very little driver support for old-ish printers much less the really old models, which for the R300 would definitely apply.

Unfortunately I do not have direct Mac experience but there seems to be plenty of other people in the same boat and I expect to see the same problems with Windows 7..

Sorry I couldn't be of more help at this point...

Printer will not scan to computer.


You will probably have to go to this page to download the new Mac drivers for Snow Leopard to get the full functionality of your All-in-one printer back.

Print functions are generic enough where you don't need to have the most updated driver for it to work. But the scanning functionalities are more complicated.

Epson r320 printer w/ no advance settings when linked w/ new IMAC


I had the same problem when installing my Epson R300 onto my new iMac (Snow Leopard). The first install used the newest online driver from Epson. The printer symptoms were exactly like yours. Then I installed the Apple driver updates. It was seamless and now the printer settings can be accessed. Perhaps if you uninstalled (read about that on the Epson site first) and then downloaded the new factory driver, followed by the Apple update which will further update files, you might have some luck. Just a guess on my part. Best wishes.

Mac OS 10.5 Leopard


First, install "epson easyprint" from the epson website. Its found under drivers and support for your unit.

Then click ok on that error message about "driver dealing with..."
After you click ok on the message, you will get another window where you will find a "manual print" button. Click on this manual print button and this will take you to the next window where you have to select "A4 as the paper size" and "CD/DVD as the paper type and paper path" . After this, click print... it should start to print! This is just a workaround until epson gets a patch for leopard for print cd........hopefully
