    hi guys,

    got my new computer with XP Home just last week so im a real newbe :D

    i tried to install my old Brother HL-730 laser printer
    with the original istall disk, but it was refused

    i know the HL-730 is 6 or 7 years old but it still works fine

    does anyone has an idea?

    all help much appreciated

  2. Hi - try and download the windows 2000 drivers - these work in most cases.
    Good luck!!

    worked perfect nigel

    thanks again :D :D

  5. It's a pleasure. If you're having problems with any other hardware and can't find XP drivers, try the Win2000 drivers as these work in the majority of cases. (Windows XP is a direct descendant of Windows 2000, NOT '98 or ME):
