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 drivers for Microsoft® Windows® 2000 Professional/XP/Windows Vista® 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 drivers support 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.
2
Printing
Printing a document
1
When the machine receives data from your computer, it begins printing by picking up paper from the paper
tray. The paper tray can feed many 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 LAN cable to connect your machine then LAN will
be in the printer driver name.)
Note
For Macintosh® users, see Features in the printer driver (For Macintosh®) on page 121.
b
c
Your computer sends the data to the machine.
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 largest paper size.
Then adjust the print area by changing the right and left margins in your application software.

Printing
Duplex printing
1
1
The supplied printer driver supports duplex printing.
Guidelines for printing on both sides of the paper
1
„ If the paper is thin, it may wrinkle.
„ If paper is curled, turn over the stack, straighten it and then put it back in the paper tray or the Manual Feed
Slot.
„ If the paper is not feeding properly, it may be curled. Remove the paper, straighten it and turn over the
stack.
„ When you use the manual duplex function, it is possible that there may be paper jams or poor print quality.
If there is a paper jam, see Paper jams in the User’s Guide. If you have a print quality problem, see
Improving the print quality in the User’s Guide.
Manual duplex 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.
Simultaneous scanning, printing and faxing
1
Your machine can print from your computer while sending or receiving a fax in memory, or while scanning a
document into the computer. Fax sending will not be stopped during PC printing. However, when the machine
is copying or receiving a fax on paper, it pauses the PC printing operation, and then continues printing when
copying or fax receiving has finished.

Printer Emulation Support (MFC-7840W, MFC-7840N and MFC-7450 only)
1
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.
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 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-Script 3 Mode
BR-Script is an original Brother page description language and a PostScript® language emulation
interpreter. This printer supports PostScript®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:

The scanning operations and drivers will be different depending on your operating system. The machine uses
a TWAIN compliant driver for scanning documents from your applications.

„ For Windows® XP/ Windows Vista®
Two scanner drivers are installed. A TWAIN compliant scanner driver (See Scanning a document using
the TWAIN driver on page 30) and a Windows® Imaging Acquisition (WIA) driver (See Scanning a
document using the WIA driver (For Windows® XP/ Windows Vista®) on page 37).
Note
• For ScanSoft™ PaperPort™ 11SE, see Using ScanSoft™ PaperPort™ 11SE with OCR by NUANCE™
on page 50.
• If your PC is protected by a firewall, and is unable to network scan, you may need to configure the firewall
settings to allow communication through port number 54925 and 137. See Firewall settings (For Network
users) on page 110.
Scanning a document using the TWAIN driver
2
The Brother MFL-Pro Suite software includes a TWAIN compliant scanner driver. TWAIN drivers meet the
standard universal protocol for communicating between scanners and applications. This means that you can
not only scan images directly into the PaperPort™ 11SE viewer that Brother included with your machine, but
you can also scan images directly into hundreds of other software applications that support TWAIN scanning.
These applications include popular programs like Adobe® Photoshop®, Adobe® PageMaker®, CorelDraw®
and many more.

Use for photographic images or graphics. (Error Diffusion is a method for creating simulated grey images
without using true grey dots. Black dots are put in a specific pattern to give the appearance of grey.)
„ True Grey
Use for photographic images or graphics. This mode is more exact because it uses up to 256 shades of
grey.
„ 256 Colour
Uses up to 256 colours to scan the image.
„ 24 bit Colour
Uses up to 16.8 million colours to scan the image.
Although using 24 bit Colour creates an image with the most accurate colour, the image file will be about
three times larger than a file created with 256 Colour. It requires the most memory and has the longest

Using ScanSoft™ PaperPort™ 11SE with OCR by NUANCE™
2
Note
2
ScanSoft™ PaperPort™ 11SE supports Windows® 2000 (SP4 or greater), XP (SP2 or greater), XP
Professional x64 Edition and Windows Vista® only.
ScanSoft™ PaperPort™ 11SE for Brother is a document management application. You can use PaperPort™
11SE to view scanned documents.
PaperPort™ 11SE 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.
This chapter only introduces the basic functions of the software. For more details, see the ScanSoft™
Getting Started Guide. To view the complete ScanSoft™ PaperPort™ 11SE Getting Started Guide,
choose Help from PaperPort™ 11SE menu bar and click Getting Started Guide. When you install MFL-Pro
Suite, ScanSoft™ PaperPort™ 11SE for Brother is installed automatically. You can access ScanSoft™
PaperPort™ 11SE through the ScanSoft™ PaperPort™ SE program group located in
Start/All Programs/ScanSoft PaperPort 11 on your PC.
50
Scanning
Viewing items
2
ScanSoft™ PaperPort™ 11SE gives several ways to view items:
Desktop View displays the item in the chosen folder with a thumbnail (a small graphic that shows each item
in a desktop or folder) or an icon.
You can see both PaperPort™ 11SE items (MAX files) and non-PaperPort™ 11SE items (files created using
other applications).
All graphical files (PaperPort™ 11SE's *.max and other files) will be displayed and include an icon that
indicates the application that the specific file type is associated or created with. Non-graphical files are
indicated by a small rectangular thumbnail and are not displayed as actual images.
Page Thumbnails displays a close-up of a single page. You can open a PaperPort™ 11SE item by doubleclicking its icon or the thumbnail in Desktop View.
As long as you have the appropriate application on your PC to display it, you can also open a nonPaperPort™ SE item by double-clicking it.
51

Scanning
Organizing your items in folders
2
PaperPort™ 11SE 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™ 11SE item or a
non-PaperPort™ 11SE item:
2
„ 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™ 11SE MAX files and non PaperPort™
11SE 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™ 11SE automatically recognizes many other applications on your PC and creates a
‘working link’ to them.
The bar at the bottom of the PaperPort™ 11SE desktop shows which programs you can use with PaperPort™
11SE.
To send an item from PaperPort™ 11SE to another program, simply drag and drop the item from the
PaperPort™ 11SE desktop to the program icon on the Send To bar. PaperPort™ 11SE automatically
converts the item to the preferred format.
If PaperPort™ 11SE does not automatically recognize one of the applications on your PC, you can manually
create a link using the New Program Link command.
ScanSoft™ PaperPort™ 11SE with OCR lets you convert image text into text
you can edit
2
ScanSoft™ PaperPort™ 11SE can quickly convert a text document image into text that you can edit with a
word processing application.
PaperPort™ 11SE uses the optical character recognition software (OCR), which comes with PaperPort™
11SE. PaperPort™ 11SE 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™ 11SE’s built-in OCR application, or you
can use your own OCR application.
52
Scanning
Importing items from other applications
2
As well as scanning items, you can bring items into PaperPort™ 11SE in a variety of ways and convert them
to PaperPort™ 11SE (MAX) files in several different ways:
2
„ 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).
Exporting items into other formats
2
You can export or save PaperPort™ 11SE items in several popular file formats, such as BMP, JPEG, TIFF
or PDF.
