A compatible should be fine. Some of the new Brother laser machines can actually be broken by non-OEM toners, but yours is not a laser. The worst I'd expect from a donor film might be a slightly poorer image. Try it out. If you have to load the film rolls into your old cartridge, make sure it's running the right direction, and with the correct side down.
