    I've just upgraded my PC to a Dell XPS M1710 notebook which I'm using
    with external USB2 hard drives. Unfortunately, I seem to have misplaced
    my Epson R200 software disk.

    I really would appreciate it if someone could help me out - I know a
    good few people have this printer for printing direct on to CDs/DVDs.

    If anyone can help me out, can you please upload the disk contents to
    the alt.260 newsgroup and e-mail me at to tell
    me they're there? To save you upload time you could either zip them or
    rar them before uploading.

    I've tried the Epson site, but they only have the drivers (but not the
    application software to print-to-cd) there.

    Thanks in advance.

    Worldwide distribution through usenet is a dumb way of getting a binary
    file from one person to another. You've come up with this idiocy before.
    What planet are you on?

    Use something like - someone uploads, gets a URL and
    passes the URL to someone else for download of the file. The file goes
    after a week or two. There are even places that will delete the file
    immediately after it has been downloaded if that's a requirement.

    You're showing yourself as a dumbo. Since the early days of Usenet, it
    has been an accepted way of offering/passing binaries. If you put your
    brain into gear you would know that a couple of megs of binary isn't
    going to make one iota of difference to the tetrabytes of binaries on
    Usenet. Of course it might be the hot weather that's upsetting your
    angst level. Or were you rejected for a career with the plod - where
    you'd be well in your element - instead you try to be the resident

    I proposed this method because (a) many ISPs limit the size of e-mail
    attachments, and (b) it's something that anyone (even newbies) can
    manage (if they're able to post to this newsgroup).

    It's notable that (once again) you never post anything constructive -
    your main claim to fame is winging at people here - but rarely providing
    constructive help when it's asked for.

    Nor can I - with your idiot uninformed post.
    The Epson site was my first port of call. They only provide downloads of
    drivers - NOT the application software which is required for printing to
    CDs/DVDs and printing duplex etc...

    Why don't you try to CONTRIBUTE something useful - instead of joining
    dumbo Dave R in winging unconstructive posts ?

    Bit sad you have to go to Russia for what should be freely available
    here. Apparently Epson UK want £10 to replace the software, hence the
    absence from their web page. Robbin' gits!

    Oh of course, that old excuse. It's not just a couple of meg is it, oh
    superior intelligent one? That couple of meg would be replicated across
    the thousands of newservers running worldwide. I gave you a simple point
    to point solution, but you appear to have chosen to ignore it.
    If your head wasn't so far up your arse you might have come across my
    second paragraph which was a constructive suggestion on how to transfer
    large files between 2 people. Or even my other post not a couple of
    minutes later, with suggestions to some chap's sound level issues.

    But that would mean admitting that sometimes people have better ideas.

    Next you'll be going on about ego, and then killfiles. Perhaps we can
    forego the usual Morgan diatribe this time eh? It's a little tedious due
    to the repetition.

  8. It wasn't needed anyway. It doesn't take much Googling to find the
    Russian site. Tony must just have been unfortunate in his choice of a
    search phrase. I'm sure many people merely refrained from a "me too"
    post after Mark got in first with the useful information.
