Go to the Brother website and download the correct file for your OS:

Grab the full feature driver and software to use all of the features of your all-in-one. You need to install the software before connecting the USB cable with most printers. Otherwise you will get a generic driver that only lets the printer works; the other features are lost. (Uninstall the previous driver if you got the basic driver; then unplug the USB cable between the computer and the all-in-one before installing the full software.)

I hope this helps.

Lost program

Yes. Go to the Brother website and look for support and/or downloads. You should be able to download the software and drivers that you need. That will fix your printer.Also, once you download the drivers/software, burn it to a CD so that you will have it for next time.

Won't scan

Hi there, this problem was posted over a year ago so I boubt you will check this but the best help I ever get is from discussion boards so I think its time to return the favor. I spent 3 hours on this one and finaly figured it out. After following all the steps on you need to fully uninstall all brother drivers and reinstall the correct drivers based specifically on your model. In this case mfc 8500. I did this and even went as far as downloading (from above website) the official uninstall tool. I then tried it again and still my driver install would bug at the "click next when connected" But when i connect my printer it doenst let me click next.

Anyways for me the answer to my problem lay in the simple answer of the usb cable i was using. I had a labtop connected to a USB connector conected to a paralell port adapter connected to the printer. I had a theory that the parallel port and usb werent communicating. Keep in mind that the before all this the printer worked fine but the scanner and email fax did not. I then diconected the paralell port from the printer and found a usb entry (weird shape not sure of the term) at the back of the printer. Looked through my cables and sure enough had the usb/weird shape usb cable. Once i connected that to the labtop like a flash everything worked. This was grueling but i hate to admit defeat to computer problems. if you read this..i hope it helps.

Get official uninstall
decompress and use it.
restart. (will not work if you dont)
Get updated driver and software package
decompress and use it
Only Connect Usb to labtop now
Only now Turn printer/plug in printer now
Complete instalation

Printer will not print

Sounds like a driver problem we can prove this by testing printer disconnected to computer, press the blue button 5 time rapidly, printer should do a test print., If this works then there is nothing wrong with printer itself it is a problem with the way your laptop is comunicating with the printer, download and reinstall driver, but before you do delete old driver (control panel / printer and faxs, del brother icon.) then unplug from laptop and download and install connecting when softwate prompts you to connect it.
