I've been searching for Epson paper ICC profiles this weekend but so far haven't found them. For reasons unknown to me my Epson paper profiles have disappeared from view. (Not in sys32/spool/drivers/color at all.)
I've re-installed the driver and that didn't work and I've searched Epson's sites and my computer as well -- no luck. (Epson seems to post icc profiles for every printer but the 3800!)
I print using Lightroom or Photoshop CS3.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
I've only had the 3800 for about 2 months so maybe I'm missing something simple.

Have you tried pulling down the latest 3800 drivers for your operating system from the Epson support site. I just checked the self-extracting driver files that I downloaded from Epson and used to install on Vista Ultimate 64-bit. I can see the ICC profiles in the install media. I'm pretty certain that they should get installed when the driver is installed or updated. Maybe you should try uninstall/reboot/reinstall.

I really searched Epson USA and Europe and could not find 3800 profiles.
I may try the uninstall/re-install bit.
Epson's included software CD does not give any option as to where to install its drivers, etc. It may be looking for a "C:" drive and I don't have a C drive. (Long story) So ...
I'm going to call tech support.
On the second re-install of the driver all of the Epson profiles are now installed. I truly do not understand.
BTW, the tech guy said the 3800 does not use icc profiles and that's why they weren't in the Sys 32 color folder!! He also said that is why they are not on their web site. ( I hope they don't find out I have them.)
