I am still waiting for the arrival of my new 3800. On the paper subject I have read quite some useful information in the topic about the same subject.
I still have a lot of Canon Photo Paper Pro (PR 101) and Photo Paper Plus Glossy (PP 101) and have difficulties just throwing this in the waste basket. Can I use this in the 3800 and if so, what drivers should I select?

Harry,
I would do it this way, were I wanting to make great prints and use up the Canon paper.
Click Edit in Qimage, then select color management.
See screen snap.
There's a funny looking icon all the way to the right of ENABLE Printer profile.
If you click that icon button all the way to the right, you will get what is shown in the screen snap. It sets the profile to a special one that was made for these conditions.
It also says to set your Driver to ICM.

As far as what paper selection to choose in the driver, check the Canon paper box for an insert or label that tells you what paper selection to use if you are printing using an Epson.
If not, then experiment with glossy or semi gloss and see what you like better.

You'll probably have to do a profile for the Canon paper to get it spot on.  Remember that Canon and Epson lay ink down very differently/
