Windows 7: Brother Software says no enough disk space


01 Sep 2012   #11

 
 

What a luck!
After having posted my problem I was wondering why it is showing no space.
The installation was not offering me any choice about the drive on I wish I can install the application. This only struck me that may be the setup is trying to install it in the first drive of my computer. And the first drive happened to be Floppy drive. I immediately disabled the floppy drive in my device manager - opened 'my computer' and confirmed there was no 'A' drive. Thereafter it was a smooth affair. Software was installed in a jiffy.
Believe me I had sent this problem to Brother USA by email and also as feedback for their FAQ but received no response all these days.
Thanks to this forum as after posting it I got immediate resolution to my problem though of my own but the fact is that it was only after posting here.

I would try enabling the hidden administrator account and try to install through there. Be sure to disable it again after word if you do.

Welcome to Seven Forums Battleaxe. Good for you, good info. I had seen posts about making sure it was trying to install on the disk with the free space. Hadn't thought about what you posted

Thanks!,
This problem had bothered me for months together and since the printer & its scanner was though working without this software application but not reproducing the exact colors, I did not bothered much. Only after reading the post about the same issue I took it as a challenge. Installing the software had helped me even in proving that the scanner & printer's output had nothing to do with it. The color printouts are in very light colors than the originals. The same thing goes for scanner - a sharp & vivid photograph when scanned showed light & dull colors.
There's a consumer case already against 'Brother' for not giving proper support. Honestly I'll never ever buy Brother printer again - even at half of the market price.
There's yet another piece of advice for all my friend users of this Brother printers. Please use best quality dye based and/or pigment ink - both works fine but like your refrigerator, never switch off these Brother inkjet printers. And even if you had to switch it off then not more than 12 hrs. Else your print-head will get clogged and Brother only needs an excuse to void your warranty.
Thanks again & God bless!
