    clone the Scanner driver for Brother MFC665CW


    After lots of hiding behind bombastic sales-blurbs, Brother admits that my trusted 9-year old printer won't be able to scan over the network into Windows 10 (they only support USB connection for W10).

    But one of the computers in my home knows better. It happily scans from my networked Brother printer-scanner, over WiFi. This computer started life as Windows 7, and I upgraded it to Windows 10 in December 2015. By now I got two other machines running Windows 10, and they can't scan. Actually, the scanner is recognised in both PaperPort 9 and the Windows Scan program. But they are unable to receive any data from the scanner.

    Is there any way to somehow clone the scanner-related files from the computer which works to the one(s) which doesn't work ? One of the targets is a new creation, freshly upgraded from 7 to 10 on an otherwise empty disk. So, it's a low-risk exercise, there is nothing to lose if I stuff up the destination. But I'm hanging on to the "source" which works.

    :)

  2. Scanners and Cameras missing

    Version 1703 (OS Build 15063.483)

    Did not make any changes to my computer (Just had a SSD installed and cloned old HD), but I remember it was working after that

    Trouble shooting: Tries Scanners and Cameras - does not bring up anything

    Does not show up under Control Panel

    Does not show under Device Manager either

    Device manager shows Imaging Devices though

    I can bring up 'Printers and Scanners' not 'Scanners and Cameras"

    Brother printer has latest driver so does Lenovo Camera

    Printer is Brother DCP-L2540DW

    Thanks for the help

  3. Cannot change Scanner IP in Windows 10 on Brother MFC 8480DN

    When I scan, I get the error message that the scanner is not connected. Under Windows 7 I could search "scan" and the item "View scanners and cameras" would appear. I would click on this and the properties box would appear allowing me to input the Brother
    Printer IP address in for the scanner and then the scanner would work. The drivers per Brother are current for Windows 10. I cannot use this same technique to input the Brother MFC printer IP address into the Brother MFC scanner properties because I cannot
    find the scanner properties. HOW do I find these properties so I can input the IP address. Sometimes an update would wipe out the scanner IP and I would have to input it manually. Uninstalling and reinstalling the Brother MFC drivers does not automatically
    repair the scanner properties. I usually find that the IP address field is blank which subsequently causes the "MFC-8480DN LAN cannot be found" error message. PLEASE.. tell me how to find this setting in Windows 10.
