The 'Print CD' driver software for the Epson Stylus Photo R1800

I made the ultimate mistake of buying the printer on eBay! When do you buy a used printer? NEVER! I went thru no less than two complete 8 cartridge sets of ink blowing out the nozzles, and when I finally mustered up the courage to print on a DVD, nada! Turns out, that the softare CD's included in the original box, the seller couldn't find on mine. The 'Print CD' software is a stand alone CD that has nothing to do with the driver download on Epson's site. And do you think Epson offers the 'Print CD' anywhere? Not on your life. I've geeked around on the net 'til I'm cross-eyed, and even appealed to Epson, all to no avail. So can somebody PUHLEAZE tell me where there's a link or download available for this machine?!

    Soulvisitor, you're great. You step right up to the plate and go hunting for me. I should hit all the ratings links just to pay you back for trying so hard. Truth is, I haven't got the heart to tell you this, but I'm a Mac driver, and the two you were kind enough to hunt down were for PC's. But before you go scratching for the Mac version, let me try the knocked off disc I got tonight from a retailer here in town. I don't know if my Mac will even be able to read it, 'cuz it was burnt on a PC, but I'm fixin' to find out.
    Again, thanks so much for your help. I'm gonna hit the FixYa! button on your behalf anyway. Thanks loads bra.

    I can not get the 'epson print cd' software for my r1800 from anywhere (no longer available on the russian site) I would prefer the 'OSX intel' version but would happily settle for a windows vista copy. Please, please help. I'm so frustrated I could punch a zen monk............. and I am a zen monk!

    After much trawling around the web...this definitely worked for me:
    To get your EPSON Print CD software working for Mac OSX Intel...I suggest:

    Do a complete removal and re-installation of the Epson printer software and drivers.

    In the Mac Hard Drive/Applications/Utilities open the Printer Set-up Utility and remove all the references to the printer model.

    Trash all Epson printer do this go to the Mac Hard Drive/Library/Printer and move the entire Epson folder to the trash, then shutdown/restart & empty trash.

    Run the repair utility (may take up to 30 mins) ... Mac Hard Drive/Applications/Utilities and open the Disk Utility. Select Disk First Aid at the top of the dialog box.Select the Mac Hard Drive Icon in the left hand pane. & select 'Repair Permissions' at the bottom of the dialog box.Restart your Mac.

    Now download the relevant driver/s from the support pages on the Epson website.
    After installing - the driver needs adding to the printer list. To do this go into the hard disk, go into the folder called Applications, double click on the folder called ‘Utilities’. You should see in this window the ‘Printer Setup Utility', double click on this icon. This will present the Printer List. Delete any reference to the printer that may be on this list already as these may not be a genuine EPSON driver. Click the add icon at the top and a dialogue box will appear, this will be the Printer Browser.
    Highlight the printer and then select add printer. Note: Do not choose a printer from the list of Epson printers. Your printer will not appear here, nor will the genuine Epson driver. You should be able to highlight the printer and choose 'Add'. If 'Add' is not available, leave the Printer Browser open and do not do anything else on the Mac, leave it open for about 10 minutes. When you come back to it, you should now find 'Add' available.

    The printer should now be added to the printer list. Test the printer by highlighting it on the Printer List and selecting 'Utility'.

    To get 'EPSON print CD' working make sure you install the 'Epson Print Module' first (on the Epson support pages)...
    Then download Epson print CD version 1.6aE from here (it's a Russian website, don't worry - the software is in English!):

    Some of above sound far out like leave it for 10 mins but who knows, you may find it usefull, didnt test link.

I have a green OK on but It will not print, will not run a test page and the error message is no help either - what should I do? besides wanting to throw it out the window?

Hello, have you tried a self-test print? which is one initiated at the printer, NOT through the computer.
If you don't know how to perform one, try pasting the link below into your web browser and having a look at the info from the Epso website.

If you can prove the printer self-test works, then your problem's maybe on the computer side of things; maybe even a driver. If the printer self-test (NOT to be confused with the Windows self-test) DOESN'T work, then take a look at the faq's on the Epson website under 'drivers and support' as below.

Hope this helps!
Kind regards,

MacBook Pro Epson Print Driver Dilemma

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.

Mac OS 10.5 Leopard

First, install "epson easyprint" from the epson website. Its found under drivers and support for your unit.

Then click ok on that error message about "driver dealing with..."
After you click ok on the message, you will get another window where you will find a "manual print" button. Click on this manual print button and this will take you to the next window where you have to select "A4 as the paper size" and "CD/DVD as the paper type and paper path" . After this, click print... it should start to print! This is just a workaround until epson gets a patch for leopard for print cd........hopefully

R1800 printing way too green/yellow

I have the same problem. Your printer head is clogged. You can use the head cleaning utility within Epson. However, if that doesn't work, you may need to use a head cleaning solution.

Epson R1800 and Imac intel

Not sure about this as Mac's are not my bag. Try removing the driver and software you installed. reboot your PC and make sure the printer has gone from the list. Reistall the latest driver you downloaded from Epson and try it again.
