Same problem, "plug in USB, turn on" nothing happens. PC is a Compaq Evo D51S P4 1.8GHz 512Mb 40Gb XP Pro Desktop. Tried from original CD and downloaded 210inst.exe from Brother site and same, same. I know the cable and printer is ok since the printer works with an older HP PC wth Win-Me.

If the installation stops with the message "plug in your usb cable", there are probably windows drivers that are in the way for Brother's own drivers. To remove them, unplug the machine, close the setup software, go into control panel -> printers.
Rightclick on the "background" and chose "printer server settings", pick the drivers tab. Most likely, the printer is in this list, so you just mark it, delete it and it should be gone. Afterwards, reboot your computer and re-start the installation software, still with the usb cable unplugged. This time, when you get the "plug your usb cable in" message, the installation should proceed when you do so.
I had this and got arround it. Here is what I did. I shrunk down the installation window so I could do other things. I went into the control panel, system, hardware, device Manager. Their was a spot marked Other Devices, with USB devices listed, but the computer didn't know what they were. I uninstalled them! and then I did a scan for new hardware. The computer found the printer and continued on with the install.
Unfurtunately you didnt tell us what pc system you run: Is it XP, Win2k or Vista?
The latter one wont be able to connect to your pc. For the mfc 210c are only drivers for xp and win 2k, 98se avaiable.
You need another (newer) mfc (mfc240 or 235) if you run vista.
Anyway, if you run xp, download the aggrssive usb driver remover from the brother homepage and delete the drivers installed.
After a restart of the pc do have the mfc DISconnect from usb port (which must be one of the pc: NO hub!). Insert install disc and wait until pc software demands the connection to mfc. Connect now to pc usb. Let the software finish the installation. This should work for xp and win 2k/98se.
Drivers and manual are available on the the Brother support site!
