I just bought an Epson R2400 and am having profile issue. In PSCS2 in the print settings dialog I can't select media type as Velvet Fine Art paper. I see the profile but is grayed out and can't be selected. I use a Mac and checked the profiles in Colorsync and it's there. I have the Matte black ink in. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
More than likely you have Photo Black (PK) installed in the printer. Because of that you will only see paper profiles for PK inks in the print dialog window.
Load a Matte Black (MK) ink cartride and the paper profiles that use MK inks will show up in the print dialog window.
One more thing, if you are running a Mac you will have to go to the Printer Setup utility and delete the "old" printer with the PK ink and then reinstall the "new" printer with the MK ink. You need to do this everytime you change black inks. There are chips on the black ink cartridges that tell the computer what "kind of printer" you are currently running.
