According to brother, the only driver downloads available for the MFC-420CN Printer are as follows:
98 / ME / 2000 / XP / XP x64 / Vista / Vista x64 / 2003 / 2003 x64 / 2008 / 2008 x64

However, it has been reported that Windows 7 may be able to recognize the driver using the Vista driver, and installed it in Vista compatibility mode.

I hope this information has helped.

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

Ultimate Writing and Creativity Center isn't compatible with windows 7.


  1. You can run the software in compatibility mode. Read about that in the Windows 7 help file.
  2. If your copy Windows is authentic you may want to install Microsoft Virtual PC and XP Mode if they are still available on the Microsoft web site. Note that your hardware must be able to handle Virtualisation, and that feature is enabled in the BIOS.
  3. OR get a version that is compatible with Windows 7 32bits or Windows 7 64 bits (whichever you are running).
  4. OR install an OS that is compatible with your Writing Software.software. The last suggestion is done in jest.

Can i use Dir 300 on a windows 7? my desktop's OS is vista while my laptop's is windows 7.. would like to know if it supports windows 7..


Yes, this product is compatible with Windows 7.
To note, if you are upgrading to Windows 7 from either Windows Vista or Windows XP check before installing that your Wired/Wireless equipment on your computer will have compatible drivers for Windows 7.

Compatible for windows 7 my driver is not compatible for windows 7


If you buy something that says compatible with windows 7 and it makes no mention of 64 bit anywhere it usually means they are saying it is compatible with the 32bit version of windows 7. Is your windows 32 or 64 bit?

Goto Windows 7 compaitbility site from Google search bar and check if that model of dongle is compatible with Windows 7 or not. If it is compatible go to the support site for that Dongle Company and search for the upgarde drivers for it.If it is not compatible then consult and buy a Windows 7 compatible Dongle.

Is it compatible with windows 7 and if not, what do I have to do to make it compatible?


Check your software Compatibility for windows 7, go to Windows 7 Compatibility Center at Microsoft.

If your version is not compatible you have to check the software site for any newer version which support the Win 7 OS.

You can try the compatibility mode in Win 7, but there is no guarantee it will work.

Hope it helps.

Is there any other OS that is compatible with windows 7? All of my software is for my Vista. Is ther anything else I can do to make my OS more compatible?


Programs released before the market release of Windows 7 are most likely XP and Vista compatible only. What I recommend is to check the websites of those programs for available updates or upgrades. Newer versions of software are Windows 7 compatible.
