    I have an epson R220 and epsons software works fine for basic tasks. However, it lacks several options noted prior like lack of printing CD/DVD cases, and it was not designed to handle Audio CD's. I ran into this application a while back and it does everything that you could put on a wish list.

    This company offers a trial period for this tool:

    Audio cds are identical in size, to a dvd. I print cds on my Epson, using "Print CD" software, without a problem.
    So, explain what you mean please?

    I think what he means is that Epson PrintCD does not have a case cover printing facility. If this is the case, then I should point out that the software is only provided with the printer in the first place because there are very few programs supporting Epson direct disc printing; whereas there are literally thousands of programs available for printing case covers. These are usually even included in the burning packages used to create the discs in the first place - such as Nero.

    Furthermore, if what was actually meant by not handling Audio CDs was something to do with the content of the software, such as the clipart or graphical side to it, theyre there if you look.

    The only other meaning to this i can come up with is, indeed, a missing facility, and this is a feature only usually needed for audio CD production: track listing (where tracks may be listed on the cd in an evenly spaced column). Other than the above stated, i can't think of anything else...

    Anyone know for sure, if the Epson software that came with an R300, will work with the R200?
    Thanks.........

    The software for the 200 is the same as the 220, 300, & the 340 since I've got all three. track listing (where tracks may be listed on the cd in an evenly spaced column).I sure would like to find an easy way to do this since I put the tracks on the CD's and my one finger typing takes quite a while. I have been putting the tracks on regular CD's putting them in a slim pack with paper towel on top for 10 mins. and taking them out and letting them air dry for 12 hours or so using the Ridisc ink . Been doing this for about 4 mos. or more and they are still holding up as good as the day I printed them . Which is amazing considering the kids and ridin around in the car.For case covers I've been using undercover XP 1.10 which is free or a donation if you prefer. Chris

    Yes it's on Nero but it won't transfer over to the Epson print Cd unless you can tell me how .I've tried every way I thought but no luck. Thats where I need the help and I know back in the forums a while ago nobody knew how to do it. IHoe if you can steer me sure would appreciate it. Chris

    easiest way is to do the track listing to the correct size in nero, with the same background colour as your CD - then print screen, crop it to the size you want and save it as a jpeg. Import the jpeg to printcd and voila! i know its long winded but it works (unless your cd has a complex background. the other easiest way is to create an image at 1000x1000 pixels resolution in paint shop pro or similar, draw a perfect circle between all 4 edges and make your entire design in the circle and again import it to printcd as a saved jpeg.

    I just got a error while trying to send it I guess it will have to send in smaller chuncks. so when I get a little more time I'll send it in so you can put the files on one disc to make a copy for your printer

    I tried Epson website but they only have the drivers for the printer no software for it. That is why I am trying to find someone that has an original cd. When you get the chance, just .zip or .rar it and fragment it when you get the chance and email it to me plz. Thanks
