I went to the Apple site (https://support.apple.com/kb/DL1881?locale=en_US) and it said 4.1 posted on Oct 6, 2016 was available. I'm surprised MacUpdate didn't know about this update.

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!

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!

The Apple Brother Printer Driver 2.8 comes from Brother through Apple. It has been causing problems with two-sided printing. The "FIX" requires going to the Brother website and downloading and installing brxlaserX6_410.dmg. My rating is for the Apple Brother Printer Software and not the software gotten directly from Brother.

All is now again well with my HL-5250DN. Big Brother has posted an update, V4.1.0 released on 12/20/2011. Go to Brother Solutions Center, find the downloads for OS X 10.7 and download and install V4.1.0. Worked for me!

Terrible update. DO NOT INSTALL. We lost duplex ability on our main Brother HL-5280DW laser printer after this update (as everyone apparently did). If you do/did install it, the fix is easy: Go to the Brother site, download the driver software for your printer and OS, install it. (I deleted the Brother laser printer before I installed the Brother driver, but others had reported success without performing this step.) Then, just add your printer in the System Preferences "Print & Scan" pane. All will be well. Do not allow Software Update to install 2.8 again ...from reports, it will try to do so.

Thanks, Drsfg, for reporting success with the printer driver from the Brother site. I had similar success, with one speed bump (see #3). 1. I downloaded and installed the 10.6 CUPS Printer Driver 4.0.0a on my 10.6.8 system. (No duplex yet.) 2. Restart for good measure. (Still no duplex.) 3. System Prefs > Printer & Fax: delete the Brother HL-5150D printer and Add it back, This regressed the CUPS driver from 4.1.0 to 4.0.0. Duplex is back! I started to post this as a reply to Alexf's report, but I changed it to a review so that I could give this update a 0.5 star rating. This experience has taught me to check MacUpdate before blindly accepting risky offerings from Software Update.

After installing the Software Update version of this, printing no longer works. It shows up in the printer dialog but fails with an error saying that the driver is not installed. I tried installing this macupdate.com download over top of the built-in drivers but they give the same error. Running on Lion.

For version 2.3, I wrote: "Snow Leopard (Mac OS 10.6.x) killed the ability to use the scanning controls on the Brother MFC-7840W -- now I have to use the (AWFUL) Apple software printer interface. Sadly, this update did not fix that problem." In version 2.7, that is all still true. What's up, Apple? Brother?

Just installed this version and it does not work with my MFC-240C. Same situation as with version 2.4, it did not work either with Photoshop Elements 4.0 in twain mode. Using a MacPro tower G5, intel, system 10.6.4. I will have to revert back to the original drivers for Snow Leopard like last time.
