    howdy!

    I just got a used printer (Sharp JX-9210) on ebay. thinking about having a bargain I was struck with the news that the drivers coming with it on a floppy will not work under xp. Trying to find a driver on sharp's website failed, too.

    Now my question. Does anyone have a suggestion about what driver might work instead for XP or if it's even possible to get an up-to-date driver from Sharp? Is there another method that might lead me around the problem towards a healthy printer/computer relationship? :rolleyes:

    Sharp support sent a quick reply:
    "Thank you for contacting Sharp Electronics Corporation. Unfortunately this printer will not work on Windows XP."

    I heard that I might fix the problem by installing a second OS, eg. WIN98, BUT let's go for an easier way please.

    If they do not have drivers for it they don't have drivers for it!! You could try a driver for a similar model that is listed in the XP default driver set. This works fairly well on some HP models.
