Epson R300 printer will not print 4 x 6

I have an Epson R300 that is a fine printer, but using Win 7 64-bit OS, the printer defaults to letter size paper. Though I select 4 x 6 and either click on Apply Now or OK, the printer continues to default to letter size. It prints fine at letter size, but I want to print photos that are 4 x 6. The letter size defaults cannot be changed successfully in "Devices & Printers" or in the software (Photoshop Elements or GIMP). In "Page Setup" the only options are various sizes of plain paper (Letter, Legal, A4, etc.). I have even made sure that administrators can manage the printer (not just print) to no avail. Epson doesn't provide drivers for the R300 leaving it up to Microsoft as part of the Win 7 OS. One site that addressed the problem, punted to Epson, despite the fact the drivers are MS' responsibility (according to Epson).
Ideas will be much appreciated. I really don't want to buy a new printer right now.
Thanks

You should not have any issue printing 4x6 on this printer.  Perhaps you are not using the correct driver?  

Try loading the latest driver from here:

Once you have the new driver you should be able to select various paper sizes.

Wow!<br />You make it look easy!<br />Somehow, however, Epson managed to make it look hard. The info I found suggested the built-in drivers with Win7 64-bit should do the trick, but they didn't in my case.<br />Thanks for the help!<br />2ward2
