My printer scanner shows connecting to pc...........forever but doesn't.The brother help page says its a terminal services problem but having windows 2000 pro ,this facility is not available as it is in xp.Does anyone have any ideas.It prints ok but doesn't scan either to email or to image.

did it come with an installation cd? This might have a win 2000 driver if you look on it rather than letting it start then install. You also may have to look on the brother site for a win 2000 driver. If all that fails try drivers.com and search for the win 2000 drivers.

I had trouble with my Brother Printer/Scanner sometime ago. When all else failed I telephoned the Brother Support and found they were very helpful. Problem was solved in a few minutes.
So do as previously suggested then give them a ring
