That is only a problem if you print outside of the printable area. I like running the printing all the way to the edge, but then I just wipe off where I over run, otherwise dry in minutes.

The R300 has had some reported problems printing discs. I first started having problems a few weeks ago. Printer is only a few months old and without much use. But, the printer's tray does not always track correctly and causes a printer error.

There was a discussion about this on another forum and many people are reporting the same problem. Don't know why the 200 works any better but the 300 is not a disc printing solution yet in my opinion.

have you tried the matte printable cd? there is another glossy type printable cd but then you have to let it dry before you let someone else touch your work...

Bob, it must be peculiar to the R300 or you just got a lemon. I've had an R200 for over a year and its never not worked perfectly. Recommended the R200 to two others who each purchased one and they've never had a problem either.

Oh Boy:-(
You all say you've got problems with the R300. I just ordered that one last week before your replies were posted. I ordered it from Newegg.com. Mainly because it had the connections for Dig Camera's and the R200 didn't. Least I thought it didn't. The price was good and the reviews seemed great. I guess I'll just have to wait and try it out for myself. It should arrive by Wed. I'll post back once I try it out.

Not everyone has problem with R300. I got a R300 for almost a year now and has not given me any problem. I print mostly DVDs and in full color. Drying is no problem either. Just make sure not to play your newly printed disc into your DVD player at least a few hours after printing. There is a message that pops out in your PC monitor in regards to drying and playing your disc.

In regards to the disc tray, make sure that the 2 arrows are aligned before hitting "print".

Good luck and Have Fun !

I have had an epson r200 for about 6 months now. Only used for CD/DVD labeling, mostly with full color images. After about 50 uses, my tray would not go in correctly without a tap from me to get it going....arrows were aligned and all but it would just sit and spin without taking the tray in...not a big deal but a bit of a hassle if I forget to tap it in and it gives me an error message...I have not changed ink cartridges as of yet, but will be looking into the e-bay deal if that pans out for MIke...

Other than that little problem, I would recommend buying at a local BJ's Warehouse for $80...I will probably be purchasing another, just for backup!

Since we're talking about the R200 anyone have a good photoshop template they use for their R200s?
