As the Christmas and New Year's holiday time fast approaches, many of us (who are the oldest of the family) open photo albums and sit for a quiet few minutes alone looking at photos and remembering times long past.
This week, I started to work with my new printer, an EpsonStylus Photo R800, giving myself the challenge of learning to print borderless prints and printing directly onto a CD/DVD. The borderless prints are quite easy if you stick to using the software called FilmFactory on the installation CD, but, after checking the EPSON Web site, it seems this application is no longer supported. It certainly makes me wonder how old the CD was that came with this brand new printer?
A friend calls printers the "invention of the devil" and certainly that remark describes the experience everytime I buy a new printer. It's like starting all over again as if I knew nothing about printing.
Printing on an ink-ject compatible CD/DVD was much easier than anticipated. First, you burn the data onto the CD and then you print on it. This process went fine except as I was following along with the manual, I discovered one spot in the directions where I could not make the choice given in the steps, but the printing went fine anyway.
You would think this fancy printer would print simple labels for me but so far I have had no luck and no reply to my email to EPSON has been given. (Note: since this posting EPSON has given me a solution which I will try.)
Nothing is simple in December!
