I recently bought a Brother Dcp-t5oow recently, I got a CD along with the printer. Do I need to install the content of the CD on my computer to use the printer or by using the default printer settings in Windows PC will work? I am confused as to what settings to use as the content of the CD is quite complicated and beyond my understanding. Does anyone here have any idea on how to use the CD ROM to install my Brother printer?
CD which comes along with your device contains a setup wizard and the drivers for your machine to function properly. You can simply put the CD in the CD-ROM of your computer and your computer will automatically start the setup wizard which you can follow to install the Brother printer with CD.
You can also set up your Brother printer without CD with just the internal setup wizard of your computer. I will discuss how to set up your Brother printer with Windows wizard.
Step 1: Connect your Brother printer to a constant power source, now using a USB cable connect it to your computer. Wait for few minutes to let the connection between the two get established.
Step 2: Open the "Control Panel" of your computer and click on "Add a Printer Device". Now your computer will start looking for discoverable printer device around and present you a list of devices found.
Step 3: Click on the name of your printer from the list, now a setup wizard will appear to add the printer device to your computer. The setup wizard is fairly simple to understand and will ask simple questions like what should be the location for your printer files, do you want to make this your default printer etc. Complete the configuration and setup process.
Step 4: Once your Brother printer has been installed on your system, either you can make use of the CD to install the required drivers or you can directly download these drivers from your vendor's official website.
Go to your vendor's official website and search your device by model number. Now go to its respective download section and download all the available drivers. Install these drivers one-by-one and you are ready to use it.
