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:"

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.

Try checking the ip address range on your MacBook. Apparently Mac Laptops tend to change their network ranges when they come in range of a new network. This means your printer is no longer in the MacBooks LAN address range. Also check and adjust your printers IP address and if necessary change it to DHCP or Auto addressing
If you are using a leopard operating system, you have to install easyprint. http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/support/supDetail.jsp?oid=26322&prodoid=37368458&infoType=Downloads&platform=Macintosh, Trash / re-install epson print cd. There is a work around for that. Please contact epson.
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.
I found this answer on Apple.com support discussions. Worked for me. There is more information available on the discussion, but this was enough to fix my problem.
Try Page Setup. Select to format for your printer. The choices for different all media should now be available under the Paper Size. This is a change from previous practice of creating a separate printer for each type of media.
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.
