Question about Brother MFC 6490CW InkJet Printer
Brother MFC 420CN
Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit
Printer and Scanner functions work ok with Windows drivers, but when using Paperport, the drop-down list of available scanners only shows that dumb WIA scanner. The TWAIN scanner which I prefer is not there. I installed the Vista patch from Brother but nothing changed. The OEM software refuses to complete the install by disappearing from the screen and memory, even when using compatibility and admin rights. Isn't there a stand-alone TWAIN driver for 64-bit systems? Microsoft doesn't have a clue and Brother doesn't care just like other vendors.
I'm not sure if it is the right problem, but I have solved a similar problem of my Brother printer (I also have Windows 7) and now it runs well. I have done a tutorial to fix it. It worked for me. The link to this tutorial is: http://autorneto.com/tecnologia/gadgets/brother-en-windows-7/
(it's not in English; it's in spanish, but it is not a difficult spanish. You can easily translate it to english, or use google or something).
Hope it helps. Please give your opinion about the tutorial, in the tutorial's page.
