Hi,
The all in one solution software you used in XP doen't work with Vista.

But you can still scan and copy by using Windows Photo Gallery.

1. Click on files tab at the top in Window Photo Gallery.
2. Click on import from camera or scanner.
3. Highlight your scanner icon (ie Brother MFC210c) then click import.
4. New scan window will popup, now you can preview or scan using this basic looking Vista utility.

Hope that helps.

How to use the scan ( Brother mfc 420cn ). Thanks!


With printer turned ON, and connected either through a USB cabe or ethernet, open the Control Center CC3. Click the SCAN button on the CC3 widow to select SCAN to Image, Scan to OCR, scan to E-mail, or scan to file. If you have not configured these options yourself, you will find the scanned documents in the user's My Pictures/ CC3/SCAN folder.So with CC3 open, the document on the glass falt bed or in the ADF, select the type of scan and press the corresponding button. A small progress window opens, etc..

How does one use the scanner? The instruction booklet doesn't tell us much What file do the item scanned go to?.


In your Brother's Scanning software, there is a "Preferences" menu where you can tell where to put your scanned documents.

By default (in Windows XP), it is located in My Documents => My Pictures => ControlCenter3 => Scan

Just try these locations for Vista or Win7

OCR problems for Brother MFC-8660DN with Vista 64bit


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.

Scan a document to my desktop


Choose OCR (Optical Character Recognition) if you mean to edit what you are copying, otherwise it would be like a photograph of what you are scanning and you will not be able to modify it as text. The original document should be very clear and the text dark, if not, then OCR will 'guess' what it thinks it saw and you had better be careful to review the entire document for errors. A good way to proofread a document for spelling is to look at it word by word from its ending toward its beginning. If you don't do it this way, then we tend to read it in context and read it so it makes sense even though there are misspellings. It wouldn't hurt to read it then from the top to the bottom to be sure it makes sense.

Ocr software


If you have lost the cd you can order another one from brother support (expensive!)

Have a look at eBay. Buy a defective mfc. Make sure that the cd is part of the offer.

If you want to use ocr only go buy omnipage software (scansoft). paperport includes a light version of the omnipage engine
