[NOTES for Microsoft ® Windows XP® Users:]

  • The contents of this page are subject to change without notice. Please check this web page frequently for updated information.

  • If you have any questions about or require troubleshooting with Windows® XP, please refer to
    our Brother Solutions Center.


  • Before upgrading from your previous OS to Windows® XP, please be sure to uninstall all Brother software and drivers.

  • The CD-ROM packaged with some models of Brother Printer, Fax, DCP, or MFC cannot be used to install Windows® XP drivers or software. Please check the information for your model in the table listed below, on Windows® XP information and/or drivers compatibility.
    Note for MFC customers: If the label on the CD-ROM does not list Windows® XP then installing the software and /or driver will cause severe problems and loss of scanner function.
    If you have already attempted to install the software from the CD-ROM, it may be necessary to uninstall the software.

  • We cannot support Windows® XP(RC1/RC2) related issues.

  • Brother DOES NOT recommend for you to use Windows NT or Windows® 2000 driver
    under Windows XP. If you use Windows® 2000 driver with Windows® XP, you may experience system lockup or failures. For more details, click here.

  • Even if your Brother Product name does not appear in the list of Brother printers in Windows® XP, it does NOT mean your product does not have Windows® XP inbox driver.
    Please be sure to check the tables listed below and refer to how to install Inbox driver into your device.

  • If you wish to receive automated email notification when Windows® XP drivers are available for your specific model please go to our Driver Notification Request page.
