Hi. We are trying to download printer infortmation for the brother 8480dn. Looks like it's downloaded, but nothing happens. we don't see a printer icon. I don't want this to be downloaded more than once if it's already on my computer!

I am the person that will be helping you today.

May I ask what is meant when you say that you have "downloaded the printer information"? Does that mean that you have downloaded the printer software, connected the printer to your device or network, or does it mean something else?

I will be standing by, looking forward to your response.

Thank you,
