    when I disconnect and connect the usb cable windows starts 'found new hardware' with message 'windows need to install driver software for your Brother MFC 9050', but can't find it. If the driver is built in why windows can't find it?What do I need to do to start my printer?

Hi,

As per Brother, when you Connect the Printer Via USB, it would automatically Install Drivers. If not, there is either some problem with the machine or you are not Configuring the Printer Properly.

Follow the Manual and Make sure, you are Configuring in a Right Way.


Few Notes from Brother

  • Brother DOES NOT recommend you use Windows NT, Windows® 2000 or Windows® XP driver under Windows Vista®.
  • Even if your Brother Product name does not appear in the list of Brother printers in Windows Vista®, it does NOT mean your product does not have Windows Vista® "built-in" drivers (Inbox drivers).
  • If your device is connected by parallel cable to a PC running Vista® only printing is supported by the operating system. For this reason we strongly recommend you use the USB or network connection when connecting Multi-Function devices.
  • The "built-in" drivers do not support network scanning. To use this function, you need to install the Brother original drivers.
  • PC-FAX sending, Manual Duplex and Quick Print Setup features do not work from within Internet Explorer 7.0.
Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

    Thanks for your response!!

    A new Hardware means that PC is fine and he is Detecting that Printer is attached . You could try a couple of things :-

    1. Are you using Vista 64 or 32 Bit Operating System? Anyway, try to use the Printer on another Machine which have Vista 32 bit Installed.

    2. Unplug the Printer and keep it unplugged for 30 minutes and then try to attach.

    If problem persists, you need to call Brother for Repair Quote.

    Hope i helped you.

    Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Instal only one printer driver on the PC it is physically connected to. Preferably the Windows 7 PC (Latest OS). Unshare the printer, remove drivers from other PC's., then reboot al PC,s and re-share the printer. The PC's sharing should allow the Windows 7 PC to use it's driver, although they may request a disc for basic information about the printer.

I do not know if Windows Vista driver software for the MFC-3240C is available on CD/DVD.

You can download either the Full Driver & Software Package or the Add Printer Driver Wizard for Windows Vista ("regular" edition) from this page.
