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.

When you first turn your printer on, the LCD screen on the epson R320 gives a list of options. If you press the down arrow button, at the end of the options is the list of your inks with their levels. The one that is low or out is flashing. The ink names are abbreviated. This bypasses the Vista problem because you won't have to rely on your computer at all!

Hi - I have the R320, I downloaded the following driver epson11889_easyprint_310a from epson site. I uninstalled previous driver which was for the r200, installed this one and everything OK Status Monitor works fine.

I was able to install the original XP status monitor from the CD, onto Windows Vista Home Premium.
On the install cd, you need to open the 'STM3' folder under whatever language you are installing, 'English' in my case. There are several .exe files in that folder:
For each of these, right click on the file, and choose 'Properties'. Under the 'Compaitbility' tab, choose 'Run this program in compatibility mode for:' - Windows XP (Service Pack 2).
Then run the 'STMSETUP.EXE' file, and it should install properly, and work. Although I cannot guarantee that it will work on your system, or that it will not have any negative effects on your computer.
So far, I have not had any trouble with it.
