The Brother Workhorse Series scanners are designed for mid to large-sized workgroups or high-volume and batch scanning applications. These robust, reliable, high-speed scanners can facilitate digital transformation and easily integrate into your work environment. I updated my OS to Catalina this weekend and find myself unable to use the Brother control center that I utilize for scanning/ emailing/ image capture. I have downloaded the latest Mac printer driver and scanner driver but am still unable to open Control Center. Brother site is awful.

I have a MFC-8660DN multi-function printer. There's a piece of software called the Brother Control Center that lets you initiate scans from your desktop and route the scan to a specific application. To get it...

  1. Visit this Brother site.
  2. Choose 'USA'
  3. Choose your model number (MFC-8660DN)
  4. Choose 'United States'
  5. Choose 'Drivers' then 'Mac OS X (10.5)' then 'English'
  6. Then choose the 'Scanner Driver' and download it, then install.
  7. You'll have to restart your computer and a dialogue will come up. You can have the printer associated by name or IP address. I chose IP address. Then I added a name of my computer so that you can use the printer interface to send things to a particular computer.

Update - A few weeks later I started having trouble accessing the scanning capabilities from the Mac. I spoke with Brother Support and they took me thru the following re-installation steps, which solved the problem.

  1. Delete the 'Users/YOUR_USER_NAME/Library/Preferences/Brother' folder.
  2. Delete the 'Library/Image Capture/TWAIN Data Sources/Brother TWAIN.ds' file.

The Brother ControlCenter2 is not supported by macOS v10.15.

Use the Brother iPrint&Scan as an alternative function.
