Hello Karen,

You will need to Delete the printer from your Printers window and uninstall the current software and install software for Windows 7. Here is the page to download it:

DCP-167 WIN7 Downloads

I suggest that you download it using the Save button when you get the Download window. Direct it to save it to your Desktop.

When the download is complete, close all open applications. Make sure your printer is powered up, ink and paper in. DO NOT CONNECT THE USB CABLE at this point. Run (double-click) the file on your desktop to install the Windows 7 software. Connect the USB cable when prompted by the software.

Here are a couple Setup Sheets that will also help:

DCP-167 Setup

DCP-167 Windows7 Addendum

These are also available from the Manuals tab on the first link above.

If you need further assistance, just use the Comment button.

Thanks for using Fixya.

(Note: You should be able to uninstall the current software through the Control Panel, but there is also an Uninstall Tool available on the Brother site. On the step when you get to actually download the file, there is a link to the tool and also instructions for using it.)

My computer has a virus


Not knowing what operationg system you have on your computer, XP, Vista or Windows 7, I would recommend your go the link I have provided below by copying and pasteing into your web browser to go the Microsoft Security Essentials.

Dowload and install the software. After the installation, it will go out for updates and do a fast scan of your computer for virus problms. Abort the fast scan and then select a full scan. Let it finish and if it finds problems go to history and it will display what has been found and what it did about if.

Good Luck

Hello, welcome to Fixya!

According to Minolta site this unit was released in 2003 & supports up to windows xp, it does not support Windows Vista or Windows 7.

Install VueScan 2011 software on your computer and it should help find the compatible drivers for windows 7 if it is available.

I formatted my pc purposely to install windows 7.after this,windows fail to install so i re-install windows xp.after this my wireless fail to work.when i tried it says'no supported wireless adapters...

If your computer originally was shipped with Windows XP pre-installed, and you used the "System Restore" CD/DVD disks that were shipped with the computer to reload Windows XP, the correct device-driver for the wireless-adapter should have been automatically installed.

If you used a different disk to reinstall Windows XP, then you can try two things:

1. Access ACER's web-site, do a search for your model, and see if the web-site offers the device-drivers for Windows XP for your model, or,

2. use an Ethernet cable to connect your computer to the Internet, and access: and do a "Custom" scan. When the scan completes, click the "Optional Hardware Updates" section, to see if Windows Update is offering a device-driver for your wireless adapter. If so, select and install that adapter.

Usb don't work on windows 7


Not good news. HP only has drivers for XP on their website. See HP a305w Support

First thing I would do is to run your Windows 7 Update program.

If that doesn't work, I would try to run the Driver Doctor scan at:

There is no charge for the scan but to download and install the drivers, there is a charge.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Hello leonardopeli
Unfortunately, Mustek offer no Windows 7 support for this model.
What version of Windows 7 are you using? You may be able to install the scanner in the virtual XP which comes in-built to some versions of Windows 7.
