Download and Save a Document to an External Memory Device Using Brother Web Connect

JPEG, PDF and Microsoft Office files can be downloaded from a service and saved directly on media connected to the machine. Documents that other users have uploaded to their own accounts for sharing can also be downloaded to your machine as long as you have viewing privileges for those documents.
  • Make sure there is enough available space on your USB flash drive.
  • To download other users’ documents, you must have access privileges to view the corresponding albums or documents.
  • Downloaded files are renamed based on the current date. For example, the first image saved on July 1, would be named 07010001.jpg. Note that the region setting also determines the date format of the file name.
  • Images are saved in the “BROTHER” folder, which can be found on the root level of the media.
