Passwords and permissions are usually the problem. User and password set in copier has to have administrative rights to the file you are scanning to

How do i setup scanner from my machine to my laptop? please start from step 1 including cable connectios and scan to folder instructions. I am using windows 8.1 pro


Before you even start, your machines "Network Support" firmware needs to be up to date to be able to connect to a Windows 8.1 PC.
Secondly your machine has to be networked. No USB scanning supported on Ricoh Devices. Create a shared folder on your C: drive called "scans". Share so "everyone" can access the folder. On the MP2852 select scanner mode and tap the block with "Prg Dest" on the screen. Select Folder and Browse for your PC. Enter your PC Username and Password when asked. Find your shared "scans" folder, select it and then tap OK on the screen. Next enter your name and save. You should be good to go. Keep in mind anti-virus and firewalls can block it. Also ensure your PC is part of a "Home Group" otherwise you will not find your PC when you browse from the MP2852. If your PC is not in a "Home Group" then you can just create a "Home Group" under your "Network and Sharing Center" and while you are there ensure that "Password Protected Sharing" is switched off under your "Advanced Sharing Settings" also found in your "Network and Sharing Center".

HOW TO SHARE FILES AND PRINTERS BETWEN WINDOWS 7 AND VISTA With three different...


HOW TO SHARE FILES AND PRINTERS BETWEN WINDOWS 7 AND VISTA

With three different versions of Windows being used now, you’ll probably find yourself trying to share files or printers between them. Today we take a look at how to share files and printers between Vista and Windows 7 machines.
In this example we are on a basic home network using Windows 7 Ultimate (64-bit version) and Windows Vista Home Premium SP2 (32-bit version).
Set Windows 7 Share Settings
On the Windows 7 machine we need to set up a few things in Advanced Sharing Settings. First type network and sharing center into the search box in the Start Menu and hit Enter.
1net.png
Then click on Change advanced sharing settings…
3net.png
Now in Advanced Sharing Settings, make sure to turn on network discovery, file and printer sharing, and public folder sharing. Make sure these are enabled in both the Home or work and Public profiles.
4net.png
Depending on your setup, you might want to turn off password protected sharing. Other wise you’ll need to enter the password for each machine in, which isn’t that big of a deal. Turning it off while you’re setting it up makes things a bit easier though by saving a step.
5net.png
Set Vista Share Settings
On the Vista machine we need to double check and make sure it’s sharing settings are ready to go. Right-click on Network and choose Properties.
2vista.png
The Network and Sharing Center opens up. Under Sharing and Discovery we need to turn on File Sharing, Public Folder Sharing, and Network Discovery.
7vista.png
Also on the Vista machine you might want to turn off password protected sharing … but it’s completely up to you.
5vista.png
Share Files Windows 7 View
Now that we have the correct Settings On each machine, it’s time to put it to the test. Open up Network on the Windows 7 machine, and you should see all of the machines on the network. The Vista machine in this example is VISTAGEEK-PC.
2net.png
There was no need to enter a password to access the Vista machine because password protection is turned off. But now you can go through and see the User Shared folders. In this example both public and Users directories are shared.
6net.png
Share Files Vista View
Now on the Vista computer, double click on Network and you should see the Windows 7 machine (where in this instance it’s MYSTICGEEK-PC).
89vista.png
I enabled password protection on the Windows 7 machine so we can take a look at the login screen that will be displayed before connecting.
6vista.png
Then you’ll see the folders and devices that are shared. Here you can see the HP printer connected to the Windows 7 machine is available.
90vista.png
And you can continue browsing through all available shared folders and files.
88vista.png
Printer Sharing
As we showed above, you can see the printer connected to Windows 7. Let’s make sure we can connect to it and print a test document. In Vista click on the Start menu and type printers into the search box and hit Enter.
95print.png
Right-click on the shared printer and select Properties.
96print.png
Under the General tab click on the Print Test Page button.
97print.png
The following message is displayed while the test page prints out on the printer connected to your Windows 7 machine.
98print.png
Another test you might want to perform is opening a test document and making sure you can print that to the Windows 7 printer.
100default.png
Provided everything prints out successfully you might want to make it the default printer.
99default.png
Troubleshooting
If your machines aren’t able to see each other or the printer isn’t working…here are a few steps you might want to use to determine where the problem is.
Double check to make sure Network Discovery and File and Print Sharing is enabled on both machines as shown above.
4vista.png
In this example both machines are connected to a Belkin home wireless router and IP addresses are dynamically assigned. If you are using Static addresses make sure you can ping the IP address of each computer. If not, double check the assigned IP Address and cabling of each computer…
8ping.png
If the printer isn’t working, double check to make sure you have the latest drivers for each OS installed.

HP1020 problem with a livebox and WIN7 configuration


I found it somewhat difficult to completely Unshare files and folders on my HomeGroup Network and still allow Printer sharing in Windows 7 (Home Premium).

Initial UnSharing still allowed files like those below to be viewed on other home network computers:

C:/Users/

{user x} (folder)

AppData (folder)

Default (folder

Public (folder)

desktop.ini (file)

Other computers on the home network could step through many levels of hiarchy in the AppData folder and appeared to have "Delete" access!!

To completely decouple the computers, I had to go through the following several different Sharing/Unsharing assignment locations, till I could completely break the linkage.

I would appreciate any clarifications or simplifications.

File UnShare Confusion on HomeGroup Network

There are several different Network Sharing/Protection assignment locations in Windows 7.

To prevent all sharing between computers on the Homegroup Network, but allow Printer Sharing:

1) Start->Control Panel ->Network and Sharing Center->Choose Homegroup and sharing options.

Uncheck sharing boxes that you don't want to share. Save changes.

2) Start->Control Panel ->Network and Sharing Center->Choose Homegroup and sharing options->Change advanced sharing settings.

Click "Turn off Public folder sharing (people logged on to this computer can still access these folders)".

3) Start->Control Panel ->Network and Sharing Center->Choose Homegroup and sharing options->Change advanced sharing settings.

Choose Media streaming options.

Click "Block All" button. Turn off. Click OK.

Anomaly Note: You have to close Control Panel and repeat all step 3 again for the change to take effect.

4) Open Windows Explorer.

a) Select "C:/", select "Users" folder with single click, then click "Share with" in toolbar.

b) Select Advanced sharing.

Under Sharing tab, select Advanced Sharing. Uncheck box labeled "Share this folder". Apply and close.

5) Open Windows Explorer.

Select "C:/Users/", select all folders and files under "Users", then click "Share with" in toolbar, then click "Nobody".

6) Verify success by going to other home network computer(s) and trying to access your files and folders. You should only be able to see there is a computer and not be able to see any folders of files.

When I try to scan to file via Control Center 3, I receive a message that says:


I had this same irritating issue - after uninstalling and re-installing several times I decided to check the folders to see if there was any remaining Brother folders or files hanging around. First I went to the Windows Twain32 folder and removed the remaining folder in there - then I went to Programs files (both of them in Windows 7) and moved all Brother Folders AND Control Center folders to a created folder on the desktop (just in case) - reinstalled the software and it worked! Hope this helps someone because I tried all the other fixes and they did not work for me.

Is there any possibility of making this printer compatible with windows 7


With Windows 7, I found that installing the Vista software/drivers in the compatibility mode works well.


Right click on the setup.exe file, left click properties, left click compatibility. Change the compatibility to Vista(Try Vista SP2). Then install the proper drivers. You'll be prompted when to connect the printer(powered on).


***To install drivers, sometimes the file unzips and does nothing. You have to look for the setup.exe file, right click on it, then left click run as administrator***


As for scanning, if you have the disk that came with the printer, then insert the Printer disk and stop it from running. Go to My Computer and double click on it. Look for the drive with the Dell disk in it. Right click on it, left click explore. Look for the OCR Folder. In the OCR Folder, there is an Abbyy Folder. right click on setup.exe, that's in the Abbyy Folder and left click run as administrator. This will install the OCR program.


Scanning

Scanning using USB connection, open the Dell All-In-One Center, click on scanning and copying and scan from there.

Scanning wirelessly, use the scan buttons on the printer.


If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response

Thanks, Joe

Go to your network and sharing center. Choose homegroup and sharing options. Change advanced sharing settings. Under your home or work profile, scroll down to file sharing connections. Switch to enable file sharing for devices that use 40 or 56 bit encryption. If that does not work, under password protected sharing, select "turn off password protected sharing". This is not recommended if you use your computer in multiple locations (laptop). I have found that turning all of these features off, running a scan from the printer successfully and then turning them back on, Windows seems to be comfortable allowing the printer to connect to the computer.
