Using the Brother printer driver
1
A printer driver is software that translates data from the format used by a PC into the format needed by a
particular printer, using a printer command language or page description language.
The printer drivers are on the CD-ROM we have supplied. Install the drivers by following the Quick Setup
Guide. The latest printer driver can also be downloaded from the Brother Solutions Center at:
http://solutions.brother.com
Windows® Printing
The dedicated printer driver for Microsoft® Windows® 98/98SE/Me/2000 Professional/XP and Windows NT®
4.0 are available on the CD-ROM supplied with your Brother device. You can install them easily into your
Windows® system using our installer program. The driver supports our unique compression mode to enhance
printing speed in Windows® applications, and allows you to set various printer settings, including economy
printing mode and custom paper size.
Note
If your PC is protected by a firewall, and is unable to print, you may need to configure the firewall settings
to allow communication through port number 137. Visit the Brother Solutions Center
(http://solutions.brother.com) for more information.

Printing a document
1
When the machine receives data from your computer, it begins printing by picking up paper from the paper
tray. Your machine can print on many different types of paper and envelopes. (See the User’s Guide for
information about the Paper Tray and Recommended paper.)
a
From your application, choose the Print command.
If any other printer drivers are installed on your computer, choose Brother MFC-XXXX or DCP-XXXX
Printer* as your printer driver from the Print or Print Settings menu in your software application, and then
click OK to begin printing.
*(Where XXXX is your model name. If you are using a USB cable to connect your machine then USB will
be in the printer driver name.)
Note
For Macintosh® users, see Using the Brother Laser driver for Macintosh® (Mac OS® X) on page 115 or
Using the Brother Laser driver for Macintosh® (Mac OS® 9.1 to 9.2) on page 119.
b
Your computer sends the data to the machine. The Status LED blinks in yellow and the machine starts
to print.
c
When the machine finishes printing all the data, the LCD shows the machine status.
Note
You can choose the paper size and orientation in your application software.
If your application software does not support your custom paper size, choose the next larger paper size.
Then adjust the print area by changing the right and left margins in your application software.

„ If paper is curled, straighten it and then put it back in the paper tray or the MP tray.
„ If the paper is not feeding properly, it may be curled. Remove the paper and straighten it.
Manual duplex (two-sided) printing
1
The machine prints all the even-numbered pages on one side of the paper first. Then, the Windows® driver
instructs you (with a pop-up message) to reinsert the paper. Before reinserting the paper, straighten it well,
or you may get a paper jam. Very thin or thick paper is not recommended.

Printer Emulation Support
1
Your machine will receive print commands in a printer job language or emulation. Different operating systems
and applications will send the print commands in different languages. Your machine can receive print
commands in a variety of emulations and has an automatic emulation selection feature. When the machine
receives data from the computer, it automatically chooses the emulation mode. The default setting is
Auto(Epson).The machine can choose from the following combinations:
Auto (Epson) - default
Auto (IBM)
HP LaserJet
HP LaserJet
BR-Script3
BR-Script3
EPSON FX-850
IBM Proprinter XL
Your machine has the following emulation modes. You can change the setting by using the control panel.
„ HP LaserJet Mode
The HP LaserJet mode (or HP mode) is the emulation mode in which this printer supports the PCL6
language of a Hewlett-Packard® LaserJet laser printer. Many applications support this type of laser printer.
Using this mode will allow your printer to run at its best with those applications.
„ BR-Script3 Mode
BR-Script is an original Brother page description language and a PostScript® language emulation
interpreter. This printer supports level 3. The BR-Script interpreter of this printer allows you to control text
and graphics on the page.
For technical information about PostScript® commands, see the following manuals:

„ EPSON FX-850 and IBM Proprinter XL Mode
The EPSON FX-850 and IBM Proprinter XL modes are the emulation modes that this printer supports to
meet the industry-standard for dot matrix printers. Some applications support these dot matrix printer
emulations. Use these emulation modes so your printer will work well when printing from those types of
applications.

Using ScanSoft® PaperPort® SE with OCR
2
ScanSoft® PaperPort® SE for Brother is a document management application. You can use PaperPort® SE
to view scanned documents.
PaperPort® SE has a sophisticated, yet easy-to-use, filing system that will help you organize your graphics
and text documents. It allows you to mix or ‘stack’ documents of different formats for printing, faxing or filing.
You can access ScanSoft® PaperPort® SE through the ScanSoft® PaperPort® SE program group.
See Documents for ScanSoft® PaperPort® SE on the CD-ROM.
The complete ScanSoft® PaperPort® SE User’s Guide, including OCR, is in Documents on the CD-ROM.
This chapter is only an introduction to the basic operations.
When you install MFL-Pro Suite, ScanSoft® PaperPort® SE with OCR for Brother is installed automatically.
52
2. Scanning
Viewing items
2
ScanSoft® PaperPort® SE gives several ways to view items:
Desktop View displays a thumbnail (a small graphic that shows each item in a desktop or folder).
Items in the chosen folder appear on the PaperPort® SE Desktop. You can see PaperPort® SE items (MAX
files) and non-PaperPort® SE items (files created using other applications).
Non-PaperPort® SE items include an icon that indicates the application that was used to create the item; a
non-PaperPort® SE item is indicated by a small rectangular thumbnail and not an actual image.
Page View displays a close-up of a single page and you can open a PaperPort® SE item by double-clicking it.
As long as you have the proper application on your PC to display it, you can also double-click a nonPaperPort® SE item to open it.
53
2. Scanning
Organizing your items in folders
2
PaperPort® SE has an easy-to-use filing system for organizing your items. The filing system consists of
folders and items that you choose to view in Desktop View. An item can be a PaperPort® SE item or a nonPaperPort® SE item:
„ Folders are arranged in a ‘tree’ structure in the Folder View. You use this section to choose folders and
view their items in Desktop View.
„ You can simply drag and drop an item onto a folder. When the folder is highlighted, release the mouse
button and the item is stored in that folder.
„ Folders can be ‘nested’—that is, stored in other folders.
„ When you double-click a folder, its contents (both PaperPort® SE MAX files and non PaperPort® SE files)
appear on the Desktop.
„ You can also use Windows® Explorer to manage the folders and items shown in Desktop View.
Quick links to other applications
2
ScanSoft® PaperPort® SE automatically recognizes many other applications on your PC and creates a
‘working link’ to them.
The Send To Bar at the bottom of the Desktop view shows icons for those linked applications.
To use a link, drag an item onto one of the icons to start that application. A typical use of the Send To Bar is
to choose an item and then fax it.
This sample Send To Bar shows several applications with links to PaperPort® SE.
If PaperPort® SE does not automatically recognize one of the applications on your PC, you can manually
create a link using the New Program Link... command. (See PaperPort® SE in the Documents section on
the CD-ROM for more information about creating new links.)
54
2. Scanning
ScanSoft® PaperPort® OCR lets you convert image text into text you can edit
2
ScanSoft® PaperPort® SE can quickly convert a text document image into text that you can edit with a word
processing application.
PaperPort® SE uses the optical character recognition application OCR, which comes with PaperPort® SE.
PaperPort® SE can use your preferred OCR application if it is already on your PC. You can convert the entire
item, or by using the Copy Text command, you can choose only a portion of the text to convert.
Dragging an item onto a word-processing link icon starts PaperPort®’s built-in OCR application, or you can
use your own OCR application.
You can import items from other applications
2
As well as scanning items, you can bring items into PaperPort® SE in a variety of ways and convert them to
PaperPort® SE (MAX) files in several different ways:
„ Print to the Desktop View from another application, such as Microsoft® Excel.
„ Import files saved in other file formats, such as Windows® Bitmap (BMP) or Tagged Image File Format
(TIFF).
You can export items into other formats
2
You can export or save PaperPort® SE items in several popular file formats, such as BMP, JPEG, TIFF, PDF
or self-viewing.
For example, to create a file for an Internet Web site, export it as a JPEG file. Web pages often use JPEG
files for displaying images.
Exporting an image file
a
Click File, then Save As in the PaperPort® SE window.
The Save ‘XXXXX’ as dialog box is displayed.

Printer Emulation Support
7
Your machine will receive print commands in a printer job language or emulation. Different operating systems
and applications will send the print commands in different languages. Your machine can receive print
commands in a variety of emulations and has an automatic emulation selection feature. When the machine
receives data from the computer, it automatically chooses the emulation mode. The default setting is
Auto(EPSON).The machine can choose from the following combinations:
Auto (Epson) - default
Auto (IBM)
HP LaserJet
HP LaserJet
BR-Script3
BR-Script3
EPSON FX-850
IBM ProPrinter XL
Your machine has the following emulation modes. You can change the setting by using the control panel or
a Web browser.
„ HP LaserJet Mode
The HP LaserJet mode (or HP mode) is the emulation mode in which this printer supports the PCL6
language of the Hewlett-Packard® LaserJet laser printer. Many applications support this type of laser
printer. Using this mode will allow your printer to run at its best with those applications.
„ BR-Script3 Mode
BR-Script is an original Brother page description language and a PostScript® language emulation
interpreter. This printer supports level 3. The BR-Script interpreter of this printer allows you to control text
and graphics on pages.
„ EPSON FX-850 and IBM Proprinter XL Mode
The EPSON FX-850 and IBM Proprinter XL modes are the emulation modes that this printer supports to
meet the industry-standard for dot matrix printers. Some applications support these dot matrix printer
emulations. Use these emulation modes so your printer will work well when printing from those types of
applications.
