We try to print, we see the file in the print cue - it goes from 0 to 1, then it oes back to 0 as if the file had been sent to the printer. However, nothing happens at the printer.

can you print a test page from the Epson printer management tool? Can you see the ink levels from the Epson tool? If you can do both, check that you aren't sending the print job to:
a. another local or network printer
b. a pdf creator (acrobat reader type file)
c. OneNote (MS Office tool)
Depending on what system your using for example WinXP or Vista, go to Start/Control Panel/Printers and see what printer is set a the Default. Default will usually shown by a printer with a Green Tick. Make sure your Epson R260 is set to be the Default printer. Right click the R260 and set it to Default Printer.
Ask some more questions of me if needed.

TM88IIIR on XP machine prints garbage

Turn printer off hold down on feed button and turn it on. This will produce a test page. Compare all your settings to the port settings that it is plugged into. It sounds like a buffer problem.

Epson Stylus Photo R260 doesn't complete prints

Make sure that you have the correct paper size set in your printer settings. Incorrect size would cause the problem you describe.

Page size for CD printing

I think that the CD/DVD printing ability depends on the software that epson bundles with the printer.
I had the EPSON R200 and i could only print CD's from the EPSON PrintCD software.
