MAKE SURE YOUR BROTHER MACHINE IS THE DEFAULT PRINTER

If the printer driver is not set as "default printer", you can not print. Make sure your Brother machine is set as default printer. If your brother machine is not set as default printer, set it as default printer.

  1. Click Apple Menu and choose System preferences..., click Print & Fax, Print & Scan or Printers & Scanners.
  2. Choose from pull down menu of "default printer".

Most likely the software will NOT work in your Mac, unless the drivers in the CD are for both Windows and PC. My recomendation is to go to the Brother site, here is the link http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/bsc/public/us/us/en/dlf/download_top.html?reg=us&c=us&lang=en&prod=dcp130c_all
