Excessive cropping with D100 prints

Am I doing something wrong?
FYI I'm editing in photoshop but printing using my Mac in Classic mode to enable borderless printing on my 1280 printer. I use Epson's film factory to handle the prints.

Your D100 should record images at the traditional 3:2 film aspect ratio. A 6 megapixel JPEG should come out at roughtly 3,000 x 2,000 pixels If not then there is a problem with your sensor.
The sensor in the E20 does NOT record images at the traditional 3:2 aspect ratio so you will need to learn to adapt BACK to film dimensions... Think of it this way, the D100 takes the "right sized" photo whereas the E20 cuts off the edges...
You didn't say what type of media you are trying to print onto or what printing program you are using. That could be your problem.
You should try printing onto 4 x 6 stock and see how much is cropped when you try to do a borderless print. My Canon S900 crops a tiny bit off at each edge in order to do borderless, but it's only like 1 millimeter.

Now, if that isn't the issue, then you may be experiencing a problem I have also run into. When I size a photo to 8x10 in Photoshop and then print borderless on my Epson 1280, part of the image is cropped. I can't explain why. I have used 9.75" as my long dimension to get a boderless print.
The wierd part about it is that I don't think it is an Epson problem. I have taken files to the lab for 16x20 prints and part of the image gets cropped. I can't figure it out.
