    I cannot find Windows 10 drivers for the Sharp AL-1217, b/w laser.

    The printer is connected via USB to a computer running Windows 2000 professional.
    The computer is on a LAN.
    I want to print from a networked Windows 10 machine.

    Thankful for suggestions?

    I tried the suggested driver.
    No luck, however.
    W10 can not find the *.inf file it needs.

    Try EZ-Way method just to see what happens. Perhaps you have Win 10 problem.

    EZ-Way assumes the printer is USB-connected to Windows 7.
    My PC runs Windows 2000.

    Your previous specifies Windows 10.
    "W10 can not find the *.inf file it needs."
    Which is it??? (Win 10 or Win 2000)

    I believe my first post describes the situation.

    Sorry, unable to locate Windows 10 drivers for the Sharp AL-1217.
    You might query Sharp directly.
    Regards
