New computer is Windows 7 - 64 bit Printer is Brother MFC-8820D. Printer works fine - computer does not recognize the scanner feature of the MFC. Have tried both USB and LPT1 connection to the new...

I lost my network fax and scanning when I upgraded to Win 7 as Brother had no support for Win7 and this printer. Very disappointing.

However, I recently downloaded the MFC-8370DN install package from the Brother website and installed it on my Win7 64 bit Asus laptop. The installer couldn't find my MFC8820DN, but I manually entered the IP address ( in my case).

That might be because of generic ink!
This generic ink destroys the nozzels due to a chemical reaction!

If you re lucky you will have good results when useing original brother ink carts.

Run the cleaning procedure twice after you have inserted the original carts!
