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 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?

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.

Visioneer 9420 Scanner Driver Does Not Work

I recently upgraded from vista to win 7 professional. My visioneer 9420 usb scanner worked fine under vista, but win 7 will not communicate with the device. I have uninstalled the old driver per the manufacturers instructions, downloaded and installed a new driver, but cannot get the system to recognize the scanner, other than installing the driver. Is there any place other than the manufacturer that i can get a driver that will work with this device, since the manufacturer does not have a driver certified for win 7?

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?

Win 7 X64 Information Needed

I downloaded and ran windows 7 upgrade advisor to see if my system was able to support windows 7. It said that my system could support windows 7 x86 and x64. I am thinking of getting windows 7 full version and needed to know if i do a clean install can i get x64 and have it format the hard drive and let it remove what the factory recovery discs put on my system and then proceed with the installation.

Also i am planning to upgrade my system soon and if i already own a retail copy of the full version of windows 7 can i put it on the new system if i put my current system back to the way it was when i got it out of the box (meaning if i use the recovery discs that came with my current system). Also, are the system requirements for windows 7 x86 and x64 the same for hard drive space, ram, and processor or are the different. If they are the same for vista home premium x86 (before sp1 came out - i got my system before the release of sp1) then i am fine.

Lost Win 7 Ultimate X64 Disc

I've managed to lose my windows 7 ultimate 64-bit disc. Also, being a fool, i don't remember if it was a full install or upgrade, (i'm running the rc over vista home premium x86. ) I was planning to get this taken care of sooner or later, but the rc expires in ~13 days, so it just got urgent. First order of business: is there any way to tell what version you have by looking at the product key? I have that copied down. Second: is there an iso i can get so i don't have to go get a disc?

Broken Win 7 Pro X64 Download

I downloaded windows 7 professional x64 from the e-academy and well it's broken. Their tech forums said to re-download it. Same result. Now i have a perfectly good product key code and no software to use it on. Where or how can i get a working copy of win 7 professional x64 downloaded from? It was suppose to be an . Iso file but 5 different burning softwares say "invalid . Iso file type" and the microsoft dvd/usb tool software says the same thing.

From the e-academy the file size was on 1st attempt 0. 99gb on second attempt 1. 2gb. I also tried the 32 bit version and this worked like a dream. Would be fine but my pc needs 64 bit not 32 bit. I can use the 32 bit on my laptop. I can not try to download the 64 bit any more as my download limit has been reached and their support will not offer further assistance.

Right Click Explorer Crash Win7 X64

I am having an issue with windows explorer crashing after right clicking. This only seems to happen after my computer is on for 10+ hours continuously, and restarting the computer fixes the problem until another 10 hours has passed.

Currently using windows 7 ultimate x64. I've been doing some research and some think it is the antivirus. While using the x64 rc i had the same problem with avg. Now that i'm on the retail version i get the same problem with microsoft security essentials, so really i have no idea what is causing the problem.

I just installed the retail version yesterday, so i don't have many programs installed. Just firefox, feeddemon, itunes and ms office, all with the latest updates.

System specs, if it helps:

Dell xps 410
Windows 7 ultimate x64
Intel pentium d 820
768 mb nvidia geforce 9600 gso
4 gig ram
