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?

Printer Driver For 64-bit Brother Mfc 9800 Printer

I can't get my brother mfc 9800 printer to work properly with windows 7 64 bit. It seems to work with my other vista machine but i can't find the ms updated printer driver that is theoretically installed in this hp touchsmart computer. I've tried all the worthless troubleshooting wizards and have come up with nothing.

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 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).

Dell 924 Printer Not Compatible With Win7

It says that my dell 924 printer is not compatible with windows 7. So does this mean that i either need to buy a new printer or just revert back to vista? Will they ever be compatible? Or is there something else i can do? I just upgraded to windows 7 and now my dell 924 printer won't work. I found on the website where it says that it is not compatible. Is this forever or is it just a matter of time before they will make a driver for it?

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.

Aol 9.5 Compatible?

Just upgraded to windows 7 on my 64 bit hp quad processor with 8 gig ram and 700 gigb free disk space. I've been using aol 9. 5 software which is supposed to be compatible and ran well on vista sp2. Now i get error messages regarding low memory and that view point media player isn't loaded (and won't load). After 4 sessions with aol tech support they tell me the program downloads but isn't installing correctly and that it's a windows 7 problem. Although aol doesn't show up in the uninstall feature of the control panel it does show up in program file (x86) in my computer.

It will not allow me to delete it. As it stands now, although i can obtain my email on aol, i am unable to use the browser inside aol or access my favorite list nor answer or send email. Aol also doesn't fully load and i continue to get error messages regarding low memory and the view point media player. As it stands now i am unable to even delete aol from my computer. I have been using aol thru internet explorer but the "favorites" list is corrupted and is unusable. Obviously aol isn't willing to help further. What is going on  and how can i either get the program to work or at the least uninstall and remove the aol program from my computer.

Having been a windows user since the days of 3. 1 i find that it is an increasing task every time microsoft brings out a new version of the os and windows 7 is no exception as this is not the only incompatibility. I am beginning to rethink my loyalty to microsoft.

Can microsoft offer any help or solutions ?

Is Labelflash Compatible With Win7?

Does anyone know how to work labelflash in windows 7, or which program i should be using. Labelflash, for those who don't know, is like light-scribe but far superior in quality. It is a laser image label burned right onto the disk. The problem is i can't get it to work with windows 7 even in compatibility mode.

The labelflash website provides a free program, for windows vista and lower, but only allows you to use their own images. I want to use my images to personalize my disks. It can be done because, like with my lightscribe, i have done it prior to win7. Any help on finding a program ($$ not a problem) that will allow me to continue using labelflash with win7 to create my own images and not factory supplied images on labels will be greatly appreciated.

Media Player 12 In-compatible

I recently installed windows 7 onto my laptop, upgrading from windows vista. I had windows media player 11 on vista and i understand windows media player 12 comes with windows 7. However, the first time i tried playing some music, windows media player 12 was just a desktop shortcut. The program had deleted itself some how. This would not be a problem if i could download another copy. But the two windows media packs for kn and n windows both say they are incompatible with my computer. Can anyone help? Or must i abandon my music listen on my computer?

Compatible Network Adapter

Last week i went out and bought a hp pavilion desktop model # p6203w with windows 7. We have one computer wired to our dsl and a linksys wireless g broadband router model # wrt54g. My problem is the belkin wireless adapter i bought didn't work. Call hp customer service and they told me that the belkin adapter wasn't compatible with windows 7. I took the belkin back to the store and looked at the other adapters. None of them are compatible with windows 7.

I have a toshiba satellite laptop that works fine with the router so i don't want to replace the router. What i need to know is what brand and model # adapter i need to buy to get my desktop up and running? I have checked the device manager and it offers dial up and broadband but not wireless.
