What kind of memory can I use?

The printer has 16 MB of standard memory and one slot for optional memory expansion. You can expand the memory up to 528 MB by installing  dual in-line memory modules (SO-DIMMs).


In general, the machine uses industry-standard SO-DIMM with the following specifications:


 Type:  144 pin and 64 bit output
 CAS Latency:  2 
 Clock frequency:  100 MHz or more
 Capacity:  64, 128, 256 or 512 Mbyte
 Height:  31.75 mm (1.25 inches)
 DRAM Type:  SDRAM 2 Bank

SDRAM can be used.


  • There might be some SO-DIMMs that will not work with the printer.
  • For more information, call the dealer you bought the printer from or Brother Customer Service.
