Knowing your PC-System would be helpful: Is it Win (and what version) or is it Mac?).

Did you connect to a USB-hub? This wont work! You have to connect directly to a USB-port of your PC.

Do connect only by a USB-cable NO longer than 2-3m!

How to connect the scanner into the computer


Hi.

Are you trying to start a scan with a button on the printer / scanner?

With your pc on and the printer / scanner on, click on "my computer" if theres not an icon on your desktop you will have to click on "Start which is on the bottom left of the screen, then on either my computer or computer" You will see a list of drives but scroll down to see if there is an imaging device connected.

If you double click on the imaging device it will open up microsoft scanner and camera wizard, follow the instructions and it will scan..

I hope that helps..

Try re-installing the software that came with the printer. I am having similar problems and re-installing did the trick.

Can not scan document


Hi,
The all in one solution software you used in XP doen't work with Vista.

But you can still scan and copy by using Windows Photo Gallery.

1. Click on files tab at the top in Window Photo Gallery.
2. Click on import from camera or scanner.
3. Highlight your scanner icon (ie Brother MFC210c) then click import.
4. New scan window will popup, now you can preview or scan using this basic looking Vista utility.

Hope that helps.

I cant scan


You have to connect the mfc directly to a USB port of your computer. DO NOT use a hub.

The mfc uses the XP buil-in scan driver.

Did you install the whole mfl-pro suite? Use paperport to do scanning from your pc.
