Sorry for broken link, don't know what happened there. Here it is again. ClickHere index page for Drivers and software.

Can you say what you are doing and at what point you can't get it to work? As I understand it you are wanting to print a picture straight onto a DVD, is that right?

Have you created the cover in 'Print CD' software program? as per my 2nd link (that does work) "Before you print, create the CD/DVD label data using EPSON Print CD. We only recommend using the EPSON Print CD software to print directly to CD/DVDs."

I've had the same trouble with Win7 64bitbut have now got it working:-

Open printCd Import the picture from the file source and adjust as appropriate. Select Print - you see the message regarding driver not installed.Click OK Select Tray then ensure you select Tray 2 Click Manual Print Select your printer - mine is an R300 Check paper is selected as manual,A4 (this is the default normally) Select Properties, CD/DVD Premium Surface as Media Click Ok and OK again.

Don't forget to put a CD or DVD in the tray.
