So I am totally wet behind the ears as far as wide format printers go. I have the pro 6100 double roll feeder printer

I am also new to papers available.

I will be using to photograph my wifes paintings and creating prints from them.

How do i go about creating the different papers in the software which are non canon papers?

For instance I purchased a roll of epson photo premium luster photo paper 260 but i dont see any paper at the 260.

I am totally in over my head, Help 🙂

Hi ironman52,

Is there no way to open a dialog box and enter all of the paper specs in that box Weight, thickness, type, sheen etc... then i can name it and add it to the medial file???

I tried what you suggested and it did not seem to fix the situation. I bought a roll of canon paper matte finish, but the 210sgm was not even in the medial list.

Saw your post and reply from Patrick. I haven't been able to get the Media Configuration tool to work with our iPF6100. The latest version (Windows 10 x64, MCT v7.02.001) finds the printer and communicates but does not display an "Add and Edit Custom Paper" button! Totally useless. I downloaded the MCT version he suggested (v1.8) thinking an older version would work. It cannot find the printer. So, we are stumped. Which version of the MCT tool did you find to work for you?
