Hi there,
Sorry if I make mistakes, english is not my mother tongue :)
So I am trying to install my new printer Brother MFC-J652ODW. My goal is to be able to print things from my computer thanks to a USB cable.
Problem is: my computer don't seem to be able to read the "Installer for drivers, Utilities and Users Manual".
I checked if the problem was coming from my USB SuperDrive. but it worked just fine with the SIMS 3.
On the DVD rom it is written that it should be readable by Mac OS X v10.6.8, 10.7.x, 10.8.x
My version is 10.10.2 so it should be ok right?
Would anyone be so kind as to help me? Thank you in advance,
ZelineZ

No, you will need to find a Yosemite (10.10.2) driver for your Brother printer. The DVD disk you have is only good for 10.6, 10.7, and 10.8. Go to the Brother web site, select your printer, and then search for a driver.
