Brother Mfc-8440 Scanner Driver Win 7 X64

I installed a new pc with windows 7. My printer is a brother mfc-8440 connected via usb. Brother does not have windows 7 drivers for this mfc, but the built-in windows 7 printer driver works ok. Printing works just fine. My problrem has to do with scanning. Windows 7 also has a built-in scanner (imaging) driver. However, i have 2 problems with it:a) it won't scan to pdf. I can overcome this with a 3rd party scanner utility (pdf converter, paperport, etc). This one i'm ok with since 3rd party software works. B) it seems the driver does not include legal size paper (8. 5 x 14) in the list of supported paper sizes. I'm unable to scan a legal size document using the windows 7 utility (or 3rd party software). Since the problem is present in both programs, i'm guessing it has to do with the windows 7 driver.

I found a suggestion to use the xp x64 driver from brother and install it under compatibility mode. I attempted this, but get an error message from brother that says "this driver is meant for a different os version. "Please help while this is the only problem i'm having with the move from an old xp machine to windows 7, it's a major hassle because i frequently need to scan legal size docs and send them in pdf format (as you can guess, i work in a legal office).

Brother Mfc-8840d Printer Not Compatible

I have just installed windows 7 (32-bit) on my father's laptop computer. When i installed the software for his brother mfc-8840d printer, windows told me the software was not compatible. Checked brother's website and indeed, the brother mfc pro suite software is not compatible with windows 7. No problem, windows still installed the scanner driver and i can scan with the unit. However, the files created are in tif format. Windows only allows for saving in a few formats, including tif. Is there a way to configure the scanning feature in windows to save as a pdf file?

Brother Mfc 255cw Color Printer Problem

We've just purchased a new computer running windows 7. We attached our printer, it was detected and immediately configured. (It's a brother mfc -255cw color printer). We've used it for several weeks with no problems. Now, suddenly, it won't print and says it's because of a problem with the current printer setup (although as far as i can tell it hasn't changed at all).

I went to check the properties and got an error message and i tried to "find" the printer but got the error message: the active directory domain service was unavailable. (Although according to the computer control panel it is the currently installed, default printer). What's going on?

Brother Mfc-425cn Printer Problem To Print On Network

I do have a brother mfc-425cn printer and i cannot get it to print as network printer (which was no problem with windows xp). When installing windows 7 drivers, it has been found correctly and without problems in the network. The whole installation process worked fine. However the printer does not react, when i want to print s. Th. So i did the windows 7 troubleshoot. The following 2 problems are found but cannot be fixed automatically:

1)"printer brother mfc-425 usb printer cannot be contacted over the network" - "not fixed".

2) "problem with wireless adapter or access point" - "detected"

As i said the printer was found in the network without any problems during installation. I also have no problems to access other computers or the router in the network. Internet access is fine. So the whole network seems to work just fine, just the printer does not respond.

Brother Printer Mfc 420cn Pro Suite Will Not Work

Brother multi-function printer mfc-420cn pro suite will not work with windows 7 and brother says they have no fix! I can print only and but no longer scan my documents to pdf and brother customer service support says they do not have windows 7 drivers for this software so just have to wait and see or buy a new printer. Mine is only 2 years old so hoping someone out there has an idea or if having same problem, maybe if enough people complain, they will come up with the fix.

Brother Print Driver Problem

Am trying to install the control center for a brother mfc-9440cn, but keeps giving error message - says need to install windows (r) service pack. Have searched microsoft for such a thing and appears not to exist. Have tried the other recommendation here: all programs. Windows updates - updated other things but does not address this issue. Does (r) service pack exist? Does someone have a link where this exact service pack can be downloaded? It is ridiculous how much time gets wasted trying to fix new software so i can actually do my work.microsoft - 1) provide a quality product 2) provide some accessible customer support.

Brother Hl 820 Driver Issue

I have a brother hl-820 printer and have recently upgraded to windows 7. With windows vista, i was able to select and use the brother hl-720 driver which comes preloaded in the windows 'install a printer' driver list in the printer installation wizard. I am given to believe this is a result of brother's work with microsoft to ensure ongoing compatibility.

Unfortunately, the same trick does not seem to work with windows 7, which states that it is unable to install the 'kernal printer driver' and that i should contact the manufacture, brother, who of course do not support the hl-820s anymore.

Does anyone know if there is anyway to get this printer working again?

Programs Sewing Machine Brother 6000

Do you think its possible for a sewing machine to get a software problem? Obviously if its ran by software it could get a software problem. Brother 6000 isn't mainstream? Who would even bother except a rouge phd to invent the demise of sewing machine. Personal very personal very very personal. I fell in love with the quilt sewing embroidery machine the first time i saw the brother 4500 beautiful , computer operated, perfect. Then i got scared what if it had a computer problem and its difficult to get parts and service for a 2003 hp compac? Not many people own or even know what a brother 6000 is, or know how to fix it.

I am looking for a quilt embroidery machine if you have any experience and most have some computer operation to them. My sewing machine is not computer operated its just a regular singer. Then again i don't have to worry about a sewing machine virus and the issues of fixing it and worrying about it. The brother 6000 is about 10 thousand dollars , lota money for a sewing machine. In fact way to much for me. I just wonder if computer operated sewing machines get viruses? What is a good yet inexpensive one?

Brother Hl-2140 - Windows Can't Find A Suitable Driver

I have a brother hl-2140 connected to my windows vista-32 business pc via usb. Prints great. It is shared. I have a second windows vista-32 business pc and installed the shared printer and it prints fine. I have a laptop with windows 7-64 home premium and i'm trying to install the shared printer. I have downloaded all current drivers via brother's website and used both disks that came with the printer (all os's on one disk and windows 7 as a separate disk). I've tried installing all versions of drivers to be sure. I've plugged the printer directly into the laptop and the printer prints fine.

When trying to install the shared printer, i physically point the laptop to the correct *. Inf file, but it always says that "windows could not find a suitable driver. " Just as a side note, brother states on their site that the hl-2140 is windows 7 compatible. I have seen many posts that contains 7 and xp issues. But i have not found any post for 7-64 to vista-32 sharing.

1815dn Scanner Not Working

We have installed windows 7 pro to our dell latitude d820
Processor:  intel t2300 1. 66ghz
Ram:  1gb
32-bit os

We have an all-in-one printer - 1815dn - that we have used before the os upgrade. Previously, we used this printer as our network scanner. Since the os upgrade, the printer will not scan over the network, nor if we connect the laptop directly to it. Its as if the scanning option/software doesn't exist, or at least is not recognized at all by win 7. Anyone know of a patch/upgrade/work around to get the scanner back as a network scanner?

Firewall Blocks Scanner

Spend several minutes with brother (model mfc-490cw). It's a 3 in 1. It is set perfectly. My computer is shown on the list were to send the scan to, but the connection doesn't go through. Able to scan from my computer to printer. If i disabled firewall, works. Try to add brother programs, don't find the right to add obviously (and the tech either). Was working just fine with vista! For now, only have config. Problems with windows 7. I don't think that removing my firewalls is the right answer.

Dell 1815dn Scanner Problem

I had windows xpand the dell network scan program on my laptop, and had no problems. My company then installed windows 7 on my laptop, and the dell network scan program back on. The program starts up fine, but it doesn't find any scanners. I have tried searching via an ip address, "browsing" for a scanner, having the scanner hooked up directly with the router, and directly to the laptop, but nothing. I've gone and searched for updates, fixes/patches, but nothing.

Canon Mf4150 Scanner Functions Not Working

Windows 7 does not "see" the scanner functions on my canon mf4150 multi-function printer/scanner/fax. I've already updated drivers on the new pc. Checked services are enabled. Verified all functions of the canon mf 4150 are working properly using my old pc with the same software (paperport 12. 0). Checked registry entries for latent issues. There must be a resource conflict somewhere, but i cannot find it. Anyone have useful suggestions?

Minolta Film Scsi Scanner Problem

I have a minolta film scsi scanner, dimage scan dual, and had it working in xp. The only way i could get it working in xp was to load the program as admin/safe mode. Do you have any suggestions as to how i should try and install this in windows 7? Minolta has not supported photographic products in many years. When i first installed it in xp it didn't work. Found a note which informed me that the only way to get it working in xp was in admin (safe) mode.

It was successful. Now i would like to try it on 7 but with the xp installation steps, might there be a suggestion as ti installing it on 7?

Canoscan D2400u Canon Scanner Does Not Support

I cannot get my trusted old scanner to work. (Canoscan d2400u), no updated drivers at canon's website and 'vuescan' does not support either. Would the ultimates virtual xp allow the old drivers to operate my scanner (given that it only responds to 32 bit xp) or do i have to throw away a perfectly good piece of machinery? Is windows 7 going to cause an upsurge in landfill with all this redundant hardware?
