I have a Brother 8840D printer and I just switched to Windows 7. The driver for the printer ( that Microsoft supplied) works fine, but what I need is software that will allow me to scan to a file. Originally it came with a built in version of PaperPort (I believe)
However, aside from the drivers, I was told by Brother today that they have no such software for Windows 7 and to contact a 3rd part vendor for software; someone like Paperport. In going to their web site the first thing I see is an advertisement for software that sells for $199.00. The printer itself was only $250.00
Is there some solution available that will allow me to scan a something to a jpg and or a pdf file?
Something that doesn't involve a lot of expense?
