Does anyone know where to get drivers for a Brother MFC 7340 for windows server 2003? I have found windows server 2000, xp, vista, and windows 7 drivers but not server 2003.

If there is no driver ... that means the OS does not support the hardware. Your options are ... Microsoft, Brother, third party or learn how to program and write one. You can appeal to MS and Brother ... my guess is they will not likely write a new driver for a 7 year old OS.

Does the MFC 7340 have a ethernet connection? You might be able to print to it as a network device through a 'qualifying' computer ... Copy the document from the computer running Server 2003 to a XP or other computer and print from there ... just an idea.

Cannot communicate with twain devise

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.
