Brother MFC-7360N is not recognised when connected via USB. In Windows Device Manager it appears as a USB Compositive Device with an exclamation mark warning status:

Brother MFC-7360N - This device cannot start

USB Compositive Device
This device cannot start. (Code 10)
{Operation Failed}
The requested operation was unsuccessful.

After a bit of experimenting, it appeared that the printer worked fine on older laptops, but was not recognised by any of the more recent ones. They all were running up-to-date Windows 10, so the issue was most likely USB 3.0 incompatibility.


The issue was resolved by updating Brother MFC-7360N firmware.

  • Hello!

    I have the same machine, same problem!

    I tried to update firmware as described above but with no success!

    My Windows 10 machine cannot recognize my Brother MFC-7360N! Not via USB , not via network!

    Maybe I have to update the firmware with an old Windows XP/ or Windows 7 machine?

    Please help!

    My MFC-7360N is still in working state and I do now want to trow it away!
