    Vista X64 has a built in driver for this machine. Trouble is, it does nothing. Either you try to print to it and it doesn't respond at all, or it turns on, but still no printing. I've tried the Brother work around, which tells you to download an old driver and install that, doesn't work either. So no printing to this device from X64. The workaround from brother is at the following url: http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/BSC...


    For those who want to give it a try. Peace

    Ok, tried "solution" from Brother...did not work on Vista 64



    1. Connected Brother 4800 to my wife's mac (prints fine and wife happy)

    2. Shared printer on the mac

    3. Installed Apple Bonjour (free download) on Vista 64

    4. Used Bonjour printer wizard to add printer onto Vista 64...

    5. And it works! using same Brother Driver that will not work directly connected via USB
    Seems like there still must be a driver to USB problem on Vista 64 as the driver works when connected via LAN

    My vista x64 lappie also won't work with the included vista driver or the brother workaround. No printing to this printer from this machine. Though it prints just fine to my HL1400 Brother laser. So that's the story.

Try using the WindowsXP driver directly, click on 'continue anyway' and see if that works.

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.

I cannot Get papaerport from my Brother 5440CN as the CD won't work with Vista


Here is a link to the official Brother solutions website.

Brother MFC-5440CN Drivers

If you select your operating system from the drop down menu, hit the search button and it will find the Windows Vista drivers for your Brother MFC-5440CN.

Be sure to select the correct version of your OS, either 32-Bit or 64-Bit otherwise the drivers will not work. If you are unsure of which one you have, follow these simple instructions:

- Click the windows button in the bottom left hand corner.

- Right click on "Computer" in the right hand column.

- Left click on "Properties" at the bottom of the drop down menu that appears.

- A new page will load, under the subheading "System" you will see "System type" this will tell you whether you are running 64-Bit or 32-Bit Windows.

I hope this helps solve your issue. If however you have any further questions please feel free to Tweet us @RefreshCarts or post on our Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/RefreshCartridges

I am tying to print a document...the printer list pops open shows it then disappears and nothing is printed (mfc 4800; Vista)


First of all, restart your system and your printer. Leave the printer off for few minutes (let the printer get cooled) and then reconnect it's usb cable and try giving a print command. If the problem persists, uninstall it's drivers and reinstall it. It'll be helpful if you update it's driver.

It's also important to run a registry cleaner and system cleaner.

If you have further problem, do let me know with the description of the outcome from the above tips.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

If you can wait unti Windows 7 comes out, I think you will be surprised with the amount of drivers the operating system will be equipped with. I was one of the Beta testers for the system and there are thousands of driver files, so hopefully they will cover the playing field.

My MFC 440 CN installation software does not work with vista, I have put on the drivers with Brother solutions but I have no operational software for the multifeatures of the machine.


You say that installed the drivers with Brother solutions. I am guessing that you mean you downloaded the Vista drivers from the Brother Solutions Website? Have you downloaded and installed the utilities for Vista from there? That should be the software that you need.

Have you checked Brothers website for a Vista driver? Try here: http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/BSC/Public/Templates/DownloadTop.aspx?NRMODE=Published&NRNODEGUID={2C7B4D65-D5B3-47BF-958E-322BE5EFDCA8}&NRORIGINALURL=%2fbsc%2fpublic%2fus%2fus%2fen%2fdlf%2fdownload_top.html%3freg%3dus%26c%3dus%26lang%3den%26prod%3dmfc9840cdw_all&NRCACHEHINT=NoModifyGuest&prod=mfc9840cdw_all&reg=us&c=us&lang=en

This is the Vista 32 bit driver.

If you are running Vista 64-bit, download this driver: http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/BSC/Public/Templates/DownloadTop.aspx?NRMODE=Published&NRNODEGUID={2C7B4D65-D5B3-47BF-958E-322BE5EFDCA8}&NRORIGINALURL=%2fbsc%2fpublic%2fus%2fus%2fen%2fdlf%2fdownload_top.html%3freg%3dus%26c%3dus%26lang%3den%26prod%3dmfc9840cdw_all&NRCACHEHINT=NoModifyGuest&prod=mfc9840cdw_all&reg=us&c=us&lang=en
