    First, I spent all night looking in forums, Australian and Russian websites all to fix this "That driver is not installed for the printer to print to CDs". This is the whole reason I bought this printer--because it is supposed to print to CDs! I am so upset having spent hours of my time wasted looking for software that should have come on the installation cd! Can someone please help me. I have even tried the adobe photo shop templates, but when I go to print, it says,"close the cd tray, so this can print to paper"....

    Right click My Computer, select Manage.
    Go to Services and Applications
    Go to Services
    Scroll down to Print Spooler service
    Make sure it is started.

    Sometimes you may decide to optimise your computer and disabled a lot of useless services. This is one, but you need it running to be able to Print!

    Maybe you don't need it if "Spool Documents so program finishes printing faster" is not selected. Dunno.

    If you want your defaults to be not adjusted you should also select ICM - No colour management in your printing preference defaults. And set Photo as your default Quality while you're there. Don't do Borderless as default because it slightly stretches your pages to do that.

    I had a similar problem with my C62 and just contacted the Epson website staff and they gave me a new download and the printer runs fine now
