    Although I've installed the Brother Drivers several times, the scan driver is not visible in the equipment manager. Is there any possibility to install the scan driver separate?

    In some cases it is possible to need a separate utility. Do you have the Driver Install CD that probably came with the printer?

    What model is the printer?

    It's a Brother MFC-7840W.
    Unfortunately, I don't have the original driver CD not anymore.

    Hi, that was a good hint. At least I'm now able to scan. The files are stored in the icloud.
    Thanks a lot
