Microsoft® Windows Vista® Support for Printer/MFC/FAX/DCP products
Brother is committed to providing support for latest version operating systems and as such Brother has been working with Microsoft® to ensure the very latest driver support for Windows Vista®. Driver Support for a large number of Brother machines is shipped with the Vista® Operating System. The drivers will automatically install when the USB cable is connected to the PC and the Brother machine. These drivers known as "built-in" drivers may not include the full functionality of Brother original drivers released for previous operating systems. As an alternative and for other connections such as network and wireless, Brother will provide drivers for download. These drivers, known as "Brother original drivers" are developed by Brother and include more functionality than the operating system "built-in" drivers. Brother original drivers can also be used for USB connection. Brother recommends the download drivers provided from the links below for use with Microsoft Vista® and Brother products.
>> For more information on Windows Vista®, visit the Microsoft® Windows Vista® homepage.

[NOTES]

  • Brother DOES NOT recommend you use Windows NT, Windows® 2000 or Windows® XP driver under Windows Vista®.
  • Even if your Brother Product name does not appear in the list of Brother printers in Windows Vista®, it does NOT mean your product does not have Windows Vista® "built-in" drivers (Inbox drivers).
  • If you wish to receive automated email notification when Windows Vista® drivers are available for your specific model please go to our Driver Notification Request page.
  • If your device is connected by parallel cable to a PC running Vista®, only printing is supported by the operating system. For this reason we strongly recommend you use the USB or network connection when connecting Multi-Function devices.
  • The "built-in" drivers do not support network scanning. To use this function, you need to install the Brother original drivers.
  • PC-FAX sending, Manual Duplex and Quick Print Setup features do not work from within Internet Explorer 7.0.
