Worked perfect for me! Just downloaded and installed, the printer worked as soon as it was finished.

The Brother Drivers work great I have a 2240 and I use it in ML and it works great.They are the best printers for printing fast as I m using a mono laser printer and it runs great in ML.

To Apple:

Please update the drivers and make it work with Mountain Lion 10.8.2.

My QL-570 label printer doesn't work anymore.

Why does it take so long to make a Mountain Lion version. I just don't get it.

When was ML released?

Well, I took the plunge and installed V2.8.1 on my MacBook Pro. My Brother HL-5370DW, which would not print two sided after the last update until I reinstalled the older driver, is working okay under this update, I very relived to say. My Brother HL-5280DW printer is at home and I'll try that tonight, but I am encouraged by what happened today.

I had thought my HL-4070CDW was defective until I read these reviews. Courtesy of all these suggestions, I went to brother.com and downloaded not only the drivers but also discovered there is a firmware update for my printer. Zero stars to Apple for the printing nightmares I've been encountering but a solid 5 stars to you reviewers who pointed me in the right direction. My computer setup is often used for ministerial support and my Pastor greatly appreciates it when someone finds a low/no cost answer to a problem. In his words God Bless you all!

Version 2.8.1 came out today from Apple (check Software Update). I haven't tried it, yet, but if anyone has, please report back. Thanks!

I suspect the 2.8 update was enough of an ordeal that many of will simply skip this update, especially since the terse release notes make no mention of fixing the duplex fiasco.

Apple and Brother need to rebuild our trust.

I downloaded and installed the Brother driver for my HL-5150D, then deleted printer in the Print & Fax/Options and Supplies/Driver, but I think I keep getting the bad, non-duplex, Apple driver. How do I navigate to the newly downloaded Brother driver?

None of these suggestions worked for me. I had to delete printer, reinstall and choose other for "print using" cue. Then selected my printer (MFC DN8660) driver manually (using a "CUPS" file). But after that printer worked again. Would not "find" software from Apple site.

I called Apple and was told (basically): Brother provides Apple the drivers, and Apple passes those drivers on via Software Update.

If you find the UPDATED troubled drivers on Brother's site, you will see that they are now version: "Version 4.1.0"

With the following note:

"Corrects the issue of being unable to do 2-sided (duplex) print. (Only for machines supporting 2-sided (duplex) print)"

Brother needs to get this updated driver pushed to Apple ASAP. Not everyone is tech savvy and rely on Software Update from not breaking things.

I'm giving low ratings because of Brother's slow response time pushing this out to Apple. Apple posted the drivers on 12/13, Brother had updated drivers on 12/20.

Avoid the Apple Brother Printer Update coming via Software Update! My HL-2030 and HL-2035 didn't print anymore with the same symptoms other reviewers reported here. Solution is going to the Brother website (Brother Solutions Center) and download the driver from there. Install on your Mac and it should work again. It did for me!

This low rated review is only for the bad Apple printer drivers, not for the excellent Brother drivers from the Brother website!

Praise the Lord for Macupdate and the great solutions to this problem which I found here!
