Question about Brother MFC-8660DN All-In-One Laser Printer
I suggest using ISIS drivers instead of TWAIN. I have always had trouble with the twain drivers failing especially in paperport ive found the ISIS drivers to be much more stable.
If you do require TWAIN though best way to fix is un-install the software that the TWAIN driver came with and re-install it. Unfortunately thats the easiest solution.
If you want to try the isis drivers they should be on the cd that you used for the twain drivers just select isis instead.
Let me know if you need further assistance.

You are correct in that paperport 9 will not work on Vista and paperport 11 is the alternative. I called about a similar model and the guy at Brother told me that paperport 11 is included on an updated cd from brothermall.com for some models. It was only about $3 so you might want to check for your model. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: won't scan
This MFC works fine when hardwired to the network - eg LAN or USB connection. Wireless setup straightforward but you will encounter problems if you ever shut off the printer as it will appear 'off line' and there is no way, short of reinstalling software or spending countless hours of wasted time, trying to reestablish connectivity. If you like the printer and scanner and fax then ONLY attach hardwired to your network. Don't bother with Brother support as they will only respond with an extract from their manual on setting up the system...the answers are no help.
