Unplug your printer from the computer.

Go to your start menu, and open your control panel. From there, doubleclick on the printer icon. You should see your printer listed. Right click on your printer and choose 'uninstall' (it might be 'remove' or something like that.) Unistall the printer.

Restart your computer (make sure the printer is still not hooked up). Reinstall the software that came with your printer. Then you can go back into your control panel, printers, and look for an option that says 'add printer' Add your printer (maybe even restart the computer) and finally plug the printer back in.

See if that works, and let me know if it doesn't, or if these directions are too technical.

Re: DVD labels won't print on my Epson R265

Hello guys.

About the problems printing CD/DVD with your Epson R265 ....................

There is nothing to do. The prg coming with the printer (PrintCD) is wrong at all and we cannot understand why the Epson Corp. has simply deleted the prg by its download site.

After tryng for a lot of solutions ........ INCREDIBLE but TRUE ..... the program Print CD coming with the previous Epson R200 is ok at 100% !

So, in conclusion, all prgs inserted onto the Epson R265 CD are OK eccept the Print CD. Don't install it from the R265 disk ! It will crash !

If already installed, delete it and install the prg Epson R200 print CD.
It will work fine and without troubles.

Repeat ... it's incredible, but true.

The prg can be downloaded searching for Epson R200 software.
If you will have troubles, let me know.
