I want to convert Epson CD images ( .ec3 files)  to .jpeg / jpg.  I have searched high and low for a software or process that could do this, but cannot find a solution...

Any ideas?

... I don't care if its free or a paid solution.

Obviously, the good folks at Epson never had in mind that you would want to do anything with and .ec3 file other than print CD's and Jackets. They didn't include an export function in their software.
I suspect that there has never been much of a demand for doing this because you haven't been able to find a hack that will do this for you. (my guess is that there isn't one out there)

The  best solution that I can offer is to open the file with the Epson Print CD software, available here,  and do a screen grab from the preview window. This should render you a perfectly suitable jpeg.

The link points to the Epson Print CD v2.0, which creates .3c4 files but it claims that it will open .ec3 files. I didn't have an .ec3 to test it out.

LOL... I totally agree.  I make typing mistakes all the time... I am just careful (as best that I can) to double check my work or use MS Notepad before submitting.

Thanks for the response... I was hopping for a different option, but I think you are correct.

I totally understand. It's frustrating when something seems so simple, in this case, rendering an image from what is essentially an image file, but turns out to be not so.

Hope it works out for you, and thanks for the points.
