Hey rip
Have you made the brother printer the default?
Have you installed the OCR software?
Some OCR software packages prefer you to scan into a document.
I use a HP unit that will not allow me to scan a document unless I scan it into a compatible software format, written or typed pages into WORD, photos in photoshop etc.
Try uninstalling the printer and then reinstalling it again
Turn off, any anti virus and firewall software you may have running and if you can update the software from within itself, update it
Dont forget to turn your anti virus and firewall software on after you have finished
go to the Brother website and download the latest drivers for use with your chosen operating system

Have fun !!

    Hi Rip,

    If the OCR software has not been installed, then the printer software cannot scan the document and transfer it too the OCR software.

    You told me that you have Office installed, so open Word and under the import menu, there should be the option to scan in a document and then run Words own OCR software over it to give you an editable page!!

    Also, have a look on the printer driver disk to see if the bundled OCR software is on the disk but not installed by the printer driver installation routine. It may be inside a different folder on the disk which may also have a misleading name.

    This happened to my wife, the software was on the install disk but it was in a folder called "inhibit",

    so she assumed that the folder was for another use.

    OK, if all else fails, there is heaps of third party OCr software available.

    Try www.download.com or www.tucows.com etc

    Try a search or google "OCR software" or even "Brother OCR software"

    Try www.driversguide.com these guys have a huge database of drivers and related application software.



    Please let me know what happens..





    Swoop.
