    I have the Epson print cd software if anyone needs it. Alternatively you can get it from the following link

    http://www.Kevsplace.com/downloads.php?p=4

    it is the second option down under software(right hand side)

    Hope this helps.

    Man oh man oh man oh man...I am NEVER going to give those epson people a cent for the rest of my life I swear...If you work for epson, please go outside, start walking and dont ever come back... Youre not worthy...

    Noww(deep breath) Is the russian site truly the only place to get a mac installer? (im on a G4 PPC-10.4.something) And Im looking for..."Print CD!" software! OMG I have never encountered anything as poor as the service of this company...I'm really shocked...

    If anyone can help me out with a mac installer, that would rock...I'm going to keep retrying various russian mac packages, but I feel like I'm operating in the dark...Ive actually got the app running but it wont print because"The printer driver dealling with cd printing is not installed"

    So yeah I'll keep downloading various russian packages and will keep checking here.

    Thanks y'all. This appears to be the hottest thread on the planet regarding this issue..

    I'm sorry.......
    I just do not understand why so many people don't still have their cd of the software, that came with the printer?
    How do you lose something like that? Why would you take it out of the room the printer is in? Why is it more than a few feet from your computer?

    Will someone explain this to me?
    I'm curious to know what goes through people's minds...........
    It's truly unbelievable!

    I finally got it to work, I needed the two packages from the ruskies:
    http://support.epson.ru/driver_list.asp?product=442&uos=34

    The easy photo print and the print cd.

    Epson on the phone offered to sell me the disc for $25, and epson on the net said I couldnt buy the disc end of story...

    Thank you all who keep this pipeline open. I really appreciate it, and there wil be many more.

    JVC- Hey remember we're addressing this issue on a global scale, so it comes down to relative terms. How many people in the world own epson printers? quite a few Id say. I installed all my printer stuff about two years ago, (you hardly ever need to format mac hard drives) and have moved 3 times since then. I havent the foggiest where the disc is. I know thats no excuse but these things do happen...

    Its just really lame of epson to sell these products without creating a user saftey net for maintaining purchased software. No other company I have has ever dealt with has been this dodgy. Im not one for promoting pirating of software but the company almost leaves us with no choice.

    Long live Russia!

    I have an R200 and a brand new R220. When I moved and then upgraded my computer I couldn't find the R200 CD so I installed the R220 and hooked up the R200. It now prints ok on paper but streaks out badly on any CD I try to print to. I think I need the R200 CD to make this one work.

    Whoever it was who asked why someone doesn't have every disk they have ever owned is both righteous and missing the point entirely. They also, I suspect, don't have quite as many things going on in their lives as many of us do.

    I'm a computer consultant. I have in excess of 3,000 CDs and DVDs related to my private world, and I am responsible for about 100 other computers.

    I used to save every disk until the 21st century arrived and everything one needed was available on the internet. Epson is the ONLY company of any size that fails so absolutely in their responsibility to their customers. To not only NOT have copies of the software related to the products they sell online available but to require their customers to BUY a CD for $25 is unethical at best and quite probably illegal as well.

    In case you are unaware, Epson lost a major lawsuit about a year ago because of exactly this sort of failed responsibility towards their customers and their sleezy attempts to dishonestly extract money from them in highly unethical ways.

    The question is not why people don't save every disk for every product they purchase, the question is why Epson would make a deliberate decision NOT to make the software available online, except for the option to pay them $25 for a replacement disk. Moreover they make each new model's software, e.g. the R200 vs the R220, incompatible with the prior version.

    How many R200s do you think they sold worldwide? 50,000? 100,000? How much do you suppose it would cost Epson to keep the software for that model available online? $1/month? $2/month

    There was a clear corporate decision to remove the software from any form of access to their customers and to find an insidious profit instead in mandating a usorious charge of $25 for a replacement CD.

    That's sleezy as hell.

    I'll get off my soapbox and just ask if anyone has the original R200 software. I bought the R220 to take to a friend in another country and really don't want to hook it up if I don't have to. My next CD printer will be a Casio.

    Hiya, Im pleased to see someones offered to help you already.

    The core drivers should be easy enough to get from Epsom, but the best bet other than the previous post is the Russkies as far as the printcd software is concerned.

    The whole epson scenario reeks of lameness. Apparrently some other company wrote the printcd software, and epson licenses it every time someone buys a printer. So if you lose the disc, which lets face it happens, then you have to buy it off the third party every single time.

    So why dont epson hire programmers to write their own printcd software? And why does epson sell a product to the unwitting public that they dont actually own, without informing buyers of the hidden "trap"?

    The obvious global effect of epsons lameness became apparrent to me when I entered "Epson sucks" into the google search engine.

    Im happy to have it printing discs now, but never again will I give them my money

    Many unusable offers do not a solution make. Nothing has worked. My R200 fails to print on CDs and Epson has no solution other than a risky and usorious $25 option that may or may not work.

    The core drivers should be easy enough to get from Epsom,

    I agree, but they are NOT at all "easy" to get from Epson

    but the best bet other than the previous post is the Russkies as far as the printcd software is concerned.

    I looked at the Russian page options but I don't read Russian. I think it is beyond reason to suggest that I would need to do so in order to retrieve a simple software program that was one of the primary reasons I bought the printer in the first place.

    The whole epson scenario reeks of lameness. Apparrently some other company wrote the printcd software, and epson licenses it every time someone buys a printer. So if you lose the disc, which lets face it happens, then you have to buy it off the third party every single time.

    What is there in the normal course of Seller/Buyer relations in the computer world that suggests that that option ought so blithely be granted to Epson when no other company I know of does it? Isn't it more reasonable for the buyer to assume that the same rules that apply to all his other hardware purchases would apply to an Epson Printer? That the software would be supported would seem to be a minor part of that multi-faceted accord, reasonably assumed by the buyer to be a "part of the purchase"?

    So why dont epson hire programmers to write their own printcd software? And why does epson sell a product to the unwitting public that they dont actually own, without informing buyers of the hidden "trap"?

    The obvious global effect of epsons lameness became apparrent to me when I entered "Epson sucks" into the google search engine.

    Now we are on the same page. Good Post. Informative

    Good post, dude.

    Hey, I have the Epson R300 and I cant find my CD software anywhere! I really want to print onto CD again and its getting frustrating trying to find the software, i even tried looking for a torrent.

    Anyways i downloaded the CD Print software on this forum but it still doesnt seem to work!

    I tried following that russian site but it downloaded unknown files, i dont think they are for my printer anyways.

    Can anyone help?

    I hate Epson =(

    Finding driver = not a problem

    Finding the free software that came with it = a COMPLETE nightmare!!

    Somewhere close to hand I have the R265 disk... Around 6 months old.. the print cd tools should be the same as the 300 series.

    edit Found it!! It's 336mb.. so request it uploading because it will take me ages.
