I am having trouble printing on cds with my r1800 via EPSON Print CD.
The image is incomplete, but not out of center. It cuts off the right side and bottom portion, creating a partial square. Hope that is clear. It even shows up in the preview as a cd with the image cut off. ???

Re: Epson 1800- trouble printing cds
Try to print on a sample or spare CD, before that Click Print Position Confirmation Pattern in the Print Confirmation Pattern section.Click Print to print the confirmation pattern on the disc and remove disc..
--Using a metric ruler, measure the distance from the hole to the cross marks labeled A and B. On print cd application click file and click print and select adjust print position, click enter values then select the distance for A into the height (top) box and distance for B in the width (right) box then click on ok

I print with the R1800 as well as the 24" 7880 in my studio. Whenever the "preview" shows less than the whole image I intend to print it is generally either the orientation (portrait/landscpe) is set incorrectly or the Paper size selected is incorrect for the size of the print.
Disconnect the printer from the computer. Turn it off & make sure the CD/DVD tray is closed then turn it back on.
Here's generic instruction for you:
If you are receiving an error pertaining to the CD TRAY NOT BEING INSERTED CORRECTLY, please do the following:
Recommendations: -Don't force the CD/DVD tray into the printer. -Make sure your printer is powered on, and the output tray is in the upper position. -Please ensure there is at least 3 inches of space behind the printer, or the CD tray may eject.
Included, are the correct CD/DVD loading instructions. Please follow the instructions below:
CD/DVD LOADING: 1. Ensure the printer is powered on. Remove any paper from the sheet feeder. 2. Push in the paper support extension on the printer, and close the paper support. 3. Push in the output tray extensions, but leave the tray open. 4. Lift the output tray. Place one hand on the top of the printer, and pull up on the output tray until it stops. Lay the tray down in the upper position. 5. Place the CD or DVD into the CD TRAY with the white (or printable) side facing up. Note: To print on small 8cm CDs, please place the small CD ring on the tray first, then place the CD inside the ring. 6. Slide the tray into the tray guides located in the output tray. Push in the guide until the arrow on the tray matches up to the arrow on the tray guide. 7. Press the PAPER button to load the CD/DVD into the printing position. The CD is correctly loaded when the printer's POWER button stops flashing.
General tips for CD and DVD printing: -Burn data/video/images onto CDs or DVDs before attempting to print on them. -Do not use thermal-printable or regular CDs or DVDs in the printer. -Moisture or fingerprints on the printable surface of the CD may cause marks or smearing to appear after printing. -All printable inkjet media is different. Some surfaces will absorb ink better than others. If output appears banded, faded, or streaky, print a Nozzle Check pattern to confirm that all colors of ink are printing completely. If the ink does not completely dry or smears after 24 hours curing time, you may need to use the Epson Print CD tools to adjust (lower) the print density. -The only supported resolution for CD/DVD printing is 1440 dpi (aka "Photo") -Borderless printing and printing on the "inner circle" (plastic around central hole) of CDs is not supported. -Do not use the "print preview" feature provided by the Epson printer driver as it will only show the image on a blank field and does not offer a clear indicator of where the image will print. -The Epson Print CD software works best with JPG images and may not import some TIFF images.
Is the R1800 the only printer that you have on ythis mac?
If it is make sure it is directly connected to your mac via a USB or Firewire cable.
Trash epson folder from Mac HD-Library- Printers
Delete Epson printer utility from Mac HD- Application folder( if you have both delete both icon.
Under prnter setup utility delete the r1800 printer
Go to finder click on file the find, type com.apple.print, if it find anything drag it all on the trash, it will not disappear from the window ( the prefs and . cache files)
download the latest driver for your r1800 from epson website
epson12113.dmg - 10.3MB - posted on 12/20/
then reinstall it, after reinstalling try to readd th printer and make sure under print using it will say Epson SPR1800 series. If you see guten print/ that is a third party driver. dont use the gutenprint. then try to print, update me for the outcome
I just off the phone with Epson and one problem with Leopard is that it uses Apple's drivers for printing instead of Epson's. I couldn't print directly to CD because of that.
To see if that's your issue, go into system setting -> printers & faxes and then select the Epson printer from the menu. On the right, it will give information about your printer including KIND. If it has your printer name followed by GUTENBERG, that means it discarded the epson drivers in favor of the Leopard ones.
You have to delete that printer (hit the minus button while it is highlighted). He then had me go to Macintosh HD-> Library->Printers and delete the entire Epson folder to prevent it from automatically reloading... this may be overkill, but...
Then go to Epson.com and download the latest mac drivers for your printer and install them. Go back to System Prefs->Printers and Faxes and click on the + button to add a printer.
When I did this it, my r1800 came up, but it had a drop down menu to choose the KIND and it still had the Gutenberg option, but it now had 'EPSON SP 1800'-the actual epson drivers. I chose that option and now it works flawlessly and I can again print to CD.
