here is where you can find the driver for what your looking for CLICK HERE
Its easy,

1.:Chose "Brother" for option one
2.: Chose DCP 130 C for option 2
3. Chose your oprating system, (what version of windows you got)

Download, and then install.. you will probably have to unplug the printer from your comptuer b4 installing the driver, then plugging it back up after you have installed the driver, then it should auto install itself.

I am trying to re-install my brother printer DCP-585CW but it says driver out of date so will not install sortware

There may be a issue here that you have not unistall the original program before attempting to reinstall the new program.

If you have done this and still get a problem, you should go direct to Brother's web site to download the latest driver version that corresponds to your Windows OS such as XP, Visita, or Win 7.

Brother DCP 585CW unable to print error 46

A possible reset might solve hence remove your printer from the PC and uninstall the printer software. Now reinstall the printer driver software and connect the Printer to be detected and installed. Check printer properties to see the ink levels.
Use head cleaning before a test is taken . It is possible that the head is not reacting to the need of the command , can be an issue with ink drying , can
also be poor ink cartridge contacts

How do i change the printer option from printing in colour to black and white? i have the brother DCP-585CW

Do that from the computer, not the printer. When you go to print, select PRINTER PROPERTIES. There will be a place you can choose to PRINT COLOR IN BLACK AND WHITE or something similar. Just check it and click ok.
