Yes, just use Windows 7 Update function to install proper drivers automatically. The drivers provided by Brother on CD do not work, though.

Installing a later version of mac to to get the printer to work

Here is a link for the Mac OS 9 driver for the MFC-420cn:

If you need a newer version of Mac OS , you would have to purchase it. Mac OS does not update from 9.1 to 10.X
Mac 9.1 is about 10 years old.

In May 2002, at Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference in San Jose, California, Steve Jobs, accompanied by a coffin, held a mock funeral[5] to announce that Apple had stopped development of Mac OS 9. Mac OS 9.2.2, introduced in December 2001, was the final version of Mac OS 9, and the end of the classic Mac OS.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

The link above will take you to a User's Manual for your particular All-In-One. On page 1-2 INTRODUCTION, it shows the button that needs to be pressed in order to access the Scan Mode of your MFC-420CN. Installed software that came with the model should open up when the button is pressed. If not, consult the manual on how to install the software again.

Or you may want to use existing Windows software (example: in Windows Vista, you can use Windows Fax and Scan).

Hope this helps! Give me a rating if it does, thanks!

No disk

Hi There,

You can save yourself some time and money by doing a Google search for the Brother MFC-420CN installation CD. I am not sure what Operating System you have on your PC/Laptop but if you Google something like: ie.. Installation CD WinXP Brother MFC-420CN - you will get a good amount of responses. Then you can either save the info to your hard drive or burn it to a CD.

Sometimes if you contact the manufacturer and tell them you lost your CD - they will send one out for free.

Both of these options work, but I would go with the download cause if you lose it again the info will be stored and don't forget to backup your downloads for future use..

Hope this helps and please don't forget to rate me.

Thanks and Happy Holidays..
