Recent switcher, got a shiny new MPB & recently started moving things over; I'm using an Epson 4880 printer, and I've got a wierd problem: When I try to print from CS5 (tried Acrobat too), my photo/picture package prints, looks great color-wise, but the entire image shifts 1/4" to the right (as I look at it from in front of the tray)... It cuts 1/4 off the right side, gives me a blank 1/4" strip on the left. Double-checked paper-size & margins... I've been emailing back & forth with a nice guy at Epson, but none of his suggestions have helped so far.
I can print the same image on this printer from my PC just fine. (Using a switch to share the printer)
Has anyone here see this kind of thing before?
QUOTE Thanks

I had a similar problem with that exact printer. It would print roughly 1/4 of the image and leave the rest unprinted.

You will have to completely uninstall any printers for that model, there should be an uninstaller with the install program for that printer

Then get the latest driver from here

yep, I have the latest driver, according to the Epson guy... uninstalled/reinstalled more than once.
I have to think it's a driver issue though, since the PC does fine, and all the settings I'm using on the Mac check out... did a different driver help you? If this IS the latest one, I'm not sure where in the heck else I can go with this...
