The printer manufacturer Brother warns of problems that can occur in connection with Windows 11. More than 90 inkjet and laser printers are said to be affected and refuse to operate via a classic USB connection. A driver update is expected in the near future.
Microsoft’s new operating system and the drivers of various accessory manufacturers seem to continue to be plagued by teething problems. As the colleagues from Bleeping Computer report, citing a new support document from Brother, owners of such printers must expect malfunctions if they are connected to the PC via USB cable under Windows 11.
The problems are to be expressed in the fact that various Brother printers via USB are not even recognized by the Windows 11 computer, users cannot make any changes to the settings or cannot connect more than one Brother device via USB at the same time. The manufacturer himself lists a total of 92 affected models, which we have attached at the bottom of this article.
Error messages and problems
In addition, there is talk of the fact that users receive an error message from the “USB Connection Repair Tool” when printing, which signals that printing has been aborted or problems with execution. Brother recommends ignoring this notice as the print job will still be processed. A further list shows various applications and tools that cause problems in connection with Brother printers connected to the USB port and the new Windows 11 operating system.
If you cannot switch to an alternative wired or wireless connection method and have to use your Brother printer forcibly via USB, you should consider whether you should initiate the update from Windows 10 to Windows 11 until a possible driver update.
