    I've had an Epson R800 for a couple years, and used it a lot for printing on CDs. Recently I did a clean install on my Mac Pro (10.5.4) and so needed to reinstall the Epson driver. I did that, but now I'm unable to print on CD--I keep getting a "paper out or incorrect tray position" error. I think it's trying to print to paper instead of CD. And it seems like with the driver I installed I no longer have the choices in page setup for borderless, etc. In page setup all I can choose is "Epson Stylus Photo R800" with no subcategories. In the print dialog box I have "Epson Print CD" selected, and under print settings I have "cd/dvd" selected for media type.

    Like I said, I've printed on discs a million times before--I know how to use the tray and stuff. It seems to me I don't have the right driver. From the Epson site I downloaded the 3.0aAs driver. I did a printer reset before installing. I repaired disc permissions. I also tried installing the latest Easy Print driver. Both of these drivers are for Intel, which I have.

    If anyone has any ideas, please let me know. It seems to me I'm missing some options I had before in page setup--like to choose 8x10 borderless for example.

    Hello Guys, I know this is already a resolved post but if anyone is looking, here's another option for disc printing.
    This is a way of printing without using plastic trays. They're easier to use and much cheaper in ink. The GX and the MX publisher both work with the MAC

    So you are suggesting people buy a single purpose disk printer rather than using the capabilities built in to their existing printers? Thanks for the suggestion but I for one would have to respectfully pass!
