Bought a 2142 brother printer, and i tried installing on two pc's.. it finishes installation, then a lil window pops up and says, 'the cd is needed to copy flies and they need a file on it' .. and the CD is already IN, and I tried switching off, restarting, putting cd out, usb, all that.. maybe the file is missing from the cd?

Message no lexmark X9575 fax printer installed


Hi. Try to use and install the software again using the installation cd. When it runs, it should pop up the window with 3 options: Install a printer, Update/Upgrade, or Install additional softwares. Choose install additional softwares. In the next window, place a check mark in Fax solutions. Then, continue and finish the installation. If you don't have the cd, software can be downloaded by going to this link to the Lexmark website. http://bit.ly/d9TDnb . Download the compatible driver for your computer. Run the installation. Hope this helps.

Hi Tamatha, This is a USB device. So I will assume you are using Windows XP? If so, try this (ensuring you have the Brother drivers cd first). Disconnect the USB cable from your pc, then: 1. Go to Start 2. Click on Settings 3. Click on Printers 4. FInd your Brother printer and fax icons 5. Highlight these icons and delete them 6. Reboot your pc 7. When windows comes back to the desktop, plug the printers USB cable back into your pc 8. Switch the printer on 9. A message should pop up on the pc screen stating that a new device has been found 10. IF this message pops up, ignore it 11. Put the Borther cd into your cd rom drive and load the software. It will find the printer and install the drivers Hopefully that should work! If not, give me a shout :) Jay
