Correct me if I'm wrong, but Windows already recognizes the printer. There is no special driver for my printer, it uses a Windows native driver. Instead of using the Add Printer button, I tried using the Add Device button, but all that does is to produce an empty window that says that it is searching devices, but from CPU/hard drive activity, it appears that nothing is happening.

Usually depends on the printer. Some printer requires CD in order to be working. Some require through Device and Printers wizard.

Hello Clay,

According to the links at Brother below, the HL-1250 will have a Windows 7 driver available for it through Windows Update, and does not have one available for download at Brother.

Windows 7 Compatible Models | Brother

Install the Windows® 7 built-in drivers from the Windows Update provided by Microsoft: Brother

Hope this helps,
Shawn
